Second up is DodoBones, a four piece group from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire.

They were formed in 2009 and describe their music as wood rock, a combination of raw and heartfelt lyrics, with natural acoustic instruments which includes the Double Bass which when brought together gives their music a powerhouse performance vibe.

They are currently working on their fourth album of self penned songs. They have performed at various venues, pubs, clubs around the UK and Europe.
