Southampton based band featuring Justin Harris on Lead guitar, Gary O Donnell on Lead vocals, Terry Wyatt on Bass Guitar and Keith Weston on drums.
Heavily influenced by The Who and the Mod/Rock fraternity including Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene, Kinks, Small Faces The Hiwatts have become a well renowned band within the Scooter and music scenes across the U.K.
The Hiwatts, have played many “Teenage Cancer Trust” events, events up and down the country since it began, from The Cavern Club Liverpool, The Fiddler’s Elbow Camden, Isle of Wight (March of the Mods). We are a 4-piece Southampton based "Who-esque" band and have been gigging for over 20yrs. The band was formed as an originals band at the beginning, with 2 original albums under our belt. With the originals we were averse to playing the odd cover. As the band progressed through the years, and work commitments changed, we opted to take the band into the covers/partially tribute areas of the live music scene. This suited everyone, and we still perform today, up and down the UK, and committing to Charity gigs where and where possible.
We got invited to play Roger Daltrey's Son (Simon Daltrey) Wedding, and his 50th Birthday, whereby we were joined by Zak Starkey on drums for a few Who numbers, and Roger Daltrey himself Sang and watched giving us his praises.
We have supported The Gift/From the Jam on several occasions and were on the same bill with From the Jam and The Chords, some years back at The Brook. We have headlined various Scooter Rallies and Festivals, including The Vicars Picnic, Samfest, Hipshaker, and many more.
Playing the best of The Jam, The Who, Small Faces, Frankie Valli, The Beatles, Oasis, The Enemy, many many more.
