About this Act

Currently performing over 20 shows a month all over the UK and recently branching out to Europe, Glasgow based 3 Card Trick cover everything from ABBA to ZZ Top via hits from Bryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Bowie, Queen, The Beatles, Robbie Williams, The Rolling Stones, The Killers... and as the cliché goes, many more. 

The band have been performing together for over 6 years, currently reaching audiences as far afield as Paris with their energetic and slick stage show. Gary Johnstone toured for 3 years with The Elvis Collection and worked with David Bowie tribute Starman Live and was also hand picked to support blues legends Johnny Winter and John Mayall on their recent UK tours.

They are three enthusiastic, professional and youthful yet incredibly well experienced musicians, all with music performance degrees. They also have an 'anything goes' policy - if you shout out a song you want, even if we've only ever heard it once, on the radio, on the way to the gig - they'll give it a go.
