We are MAZE, three cheeky, young creative musicians who perform our own original songs plus the occasional cover when we play live so the audience can sing along and help create a great atmosphere. We like to think our songs are individual and uplifting with a catchy “feel good” vibe while our sound has been compared to that of Maroon 5, Coldplay and Scouting For Girls.
So far we have played local festivals, club gigs and supported Stakeout at the O2 Academy Islington and are currently recording our first EP for release this Autumn. We have had great support from Vibe FM who interviewed us recently which led to us being invited to play at Croxfest 2013!
On stage: 13:20 – 13:50
The Nameless Three are a five-piece party folk act based in Hertfordshire. Fusing bouncy folk vibes with a range of both modern and classic covers, they play something to appeal to every age group and really know how to get a party going! Throw some three-part close harmony vocals and an album’s worth of original material into the mix and you’re left with five guys who really know how to make their acoustic instruments rock, but who still haven’t quite got the hang of counting yet…
On stage: 14:05 – 14:35
The Odd Eccentric dominated their local music scene in the late 80s with a unique blend of magic, mirth and mayhem. Press reports spoke of borderline genius and madness; musically sophisticated and visually crazed, whilst publications in Denmark where the band were a surprise hit described them as, ‘An anakronistike specielle slags‘ and ‘London’s mest efterspurgte band‘.
They have been constantly reinventing themselves since the 80s and are currently on their 30th anniversary tour. Croxfest brings them full circle, having formed in Croxley Green late 1983. Their album, ‘Odds ‘n Sods‘; a collection of their fans favourites over the years was released in 2012.
On stage: 14:50 – 15:20

Born at various junctures between 1957 and 1984, the actual age range and experience encased within this mysterious 8 piece, would put many of today’s more established reformers to shame.
The band have a look & style that falls somewhere between The Rocky Horror show, Oh Boy!, Carry on Screaming, a BBC period drama & Dad’s Army, the Tuesdays certainly give off a refreshing air of who cares, which has got to be worth something in todays dark days of austerity!
On stage: 18:10 – 18:55
