Little Moscow hosted by Howden Live

Little Moscow are a cracking band; a bunch of lads who just love rock music and have played together since they were kids.

Kev McNestry and Si Harrison on Guitar and Vocals, Joe McNestry on Bass and Si King on Drums.

Come 2018, they got it back together again as Iván Diaz joined the family on violin and drums.

In the meantime, Si has become Si King of Hairy Bikers fame, and now rocks out on vocals, percussion and drums. The rest is legend.

Now, thirty-something years on, they are touring the UK, playing better than ever! Little Moscow are a band from the North East covering classic and contemporary rock from artists such as Bon Jovi, Neil Young, The Doobie Brothers and The Waterboys and many more.

As a wide-eyed kid dreaming of rock and roll glory, Si King’s teenage years revolved around music, mates and food. Fast-forward four decades and all three still dominate a crazy schedule that includes multiple television series, radio commitments and joining his bandmates for a weekly jam.

The band went down a storm at last summer’s Cornbury Festival alongside UB40, Squeeze and Alanis Morissette and the post-gig consensus was that there’s never been a better time to take a belated shot at the big time.

Having swapped chopsticks for drumsticks Si King says“It’s a bit like a midlife crisis,a midlife crisis that’s hung over since we were about 40! We’re basically just a bunch of mates who have got back together and we’re going to have a bit of fun and see where it takes us.”
