Festivals and other outdoor appearances range from several live shows to thousands of people on Plymouth Hoe in the mid 1990s and Glastonbury 2000 to more recent outings at the Maker Sunshine and Newt Beer Festivals. In 2008 the Wireless were contracted to play at one of Europes top music bars, Waynes Bar in Nice France.

Fantastic musicians. Professional, courteous and reliable, thank you so much!” Father of the bride 2011

In 2010, The Wireless travelled to Athlone in Ireland where they shared a stage with Imelda May, Sharon Shannon and the Undertones!

Versatility is the key to The Wireless’ popularity: not many bands can please crowds at an exclusive wedding at the Old Sarum in Salisbury Cathedral one week and then crank up the party vibe to revelers at the Cornish Cyder Farm the next week!
