Pek & Wanley

Probably one of the North East’s best ramshackle, hipster-hop, hillbilly, folk-ie, pop and rock acoustic cover duos…

ABOUT US

If you’ve got this far you probably already know that we’re Pek & Wanley and we play covers of songs we like.

Whatever your event or occasion we can bring our brand of quirky goodness to the party. We firmly believe that variety is the spice of life and strive to tailor well known songs, spanning many genres and decades to work with our unique chemistry and sound.

With over 60 tracks and counting, from Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre to Simon and Garfunkle. From MJ to George Ezra, Toto to the Weather Girls, we like to think we’ve got a little something covered for everyone. If not, let us know, we’re always happy to take suggestions for new material.

  • “Pek & Wanley played my wedding last year. They was great fun and a brilliant “buffer” during that boring bit on the day to the night when everyone gets bored n no one knows what to do. The kids loved it, had a dance, the adults sung along, the nans danced round their handbags.”

    Phil W. -
  • “As Landlord of the Fisherman’s Arms these guys are always first choice for me. Why? Cos it’s pretty much a guarantee of a packed house. Superbly original twists on songs we all know and love. Energetic, enigmatic, humorous and damn fine musicians too. As a bonus, they are also two of the nicest chaps you will come across. Looking forward to seeing them rock the Fish again soon!”

    Paul Williams – Landlord - The Fisherman’s Arms, Hartlepool Headland
  • “When I first stumbled across Pek & Wanley I had not long started putting live music events on in the town. They came down and done a little acoustic set upstairs at The Showroom and despite having just an acoustic guitar and a Cajon, they easily managed to upstage the rest of the line up.”

    Al Devon - Peng PR
  • “Classic unplugged numbers from all eras. Something for everyone. Went down an absolute storm at the Old Boys. We’ll certainly be asking them to perform for us again (and again!). Can’t recommend them highly enough!”

    Liam Lester - Hartlepool RFC
  • “As an original music promoter in general, I am not one for generally promoting cover acts as a rule, but when you come across an ace duo like Pek & Wanley who manage to make their unique covers their own that’s when I take exception, and having now played three (maybe 4) of my PinDrop evenings, they are now favs of regular PinDroppers. Not only do they cover familiar songs, they tackle the oddities and rarely heard songs, which indeed makes them unique for a covers act IMO, so indeed they are my go to cover band/act if ever needed.”

    Brian Barnes - PinDrop Events
  • Pek & Wanley are 2 fabulous musicians that will add a difference to any event. They played at our wedding in August of this year and I can honestly say we were incredibly proud to have had them there! They entertained every age range which is really not an easy task however with the injection of good humour, a good variation of music along with serious talent they found themselves another huge following!
