Sara Bills and The Has-Beens @ Hootananny
Oct 6 @ 9:30 pm

Described as Alternative Folk pop-Punk, Sara Bills & The Hasbeens can boast the experience of former members of well known Invernessian bands such as Lowtide Revelry, The Galipaygoes, Major Smokey & even the angst riddled punk band Radio4Door, that never really made it further than the legendary Market Bar.

Now on the cusp of embarking on a new adventure, hoping to finally get the chance to play the festival circuit, with some impressive support slots for acts such as Kassidy, Alabama3, The Banana Sessions, Wooden Box & even Albert Lee in the early Hasbeen days, under their belts. The Hasbeens are ready for plans of festivals, parties, sillyness, seriousness and bringing honest songs inspired by growing up in the Highlands to a wider audience.
