Grousebeater Sound System

Hailing from the far North West of Scotland, the GROUSEBEATER SOUND SYSTEM are a 5 piece live band, producing a fusion of cutting edge electronic dance music with traditional celtic styles and instruments. 

Their somewhat unique line-up consisting of live electronics, scratch DJing, Live Bass, Guitar, Pipes, Whistles and Fiddle, and the individual sound they produce has seen them play at nearly every major festival in Scotland over the past couple of summers, including headlining the Ceilidh Tent at T IN THE PARK in 2010, The Clash Arena at ROCKNESS, appearing at THE WIZARD FESTIVAL, BELLADRUM, LOOPALLU.

The G.B.S.S' fast growing reputation for being one of the hottest live bands on the scene recently lead to their involvement in a cultural exchange between The Scottish Highlands and The Basque Region of Spain. This included politicians, musicians, sportsmen and dancers visiting The Basque Country, and saw The G.B.S.S. play to around 15'000 during their two date tour, taking in THE INAUGURAL HIGHLAND GAMES in ORDIZIA, as well as The NAFFAROA OINEZ festival in PAMPLONA.

The coming summer sees the 'Beaters return to the continent, with a new set of fresh tunes, a tour of Holland planned, including headlining the FOLKWOODS Festival near Eindhoven. They are available for FESTIVALS, TOURS and ONE OFF GIGS throughout Scotland and further afield during 2011.
