7786 are one of the premier indie, new wave, ska, 2Tone and punk covers bands in the UK. We play a wide ranging setlist which befits the Punk generation.


Imagine if you could take a journey into time to go see all your favourite bands from the punk years, 77-86, and when you got there, they were much better looking and as good as you remember.

Take a trip through your vinyl collection from yesteryear and imagine being able to see those songs being played live again.

7786  recapture the sight and sounds of the era, with an energetic live show full of memories, ensuring a great night, full of the best  music from the punk era. 

Gaining new fans wherever we play amongst all ages, with our covers of artists as diverse as the Stranglers, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Ruts, Buzzcocks, The Jam, The Specials, Gloria Jones, The Meteors, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and many more.


The only thing missing is 35p pints of Breaker and Viv Westwoods famous clothing. 7786 transport the audience back in time for a couple of hours of pogoing, skanking and wrecking. Just dont blame us for your sore feet in the morning
