Biography

Excessive lifestyle, noise, hype, drugs, ego, illusions of grandeur.

Yeah…
That’s not us.

When the David Goo Variety Band came to its natural conclusion, David Goo wanted to do something different.

After reading Dunbar’s theory that society works best in groups of 150 people, he concluded an audience of exactly 150 could be pretty sweet too. Smaller numbers, intimate settings, personal rather than alienating. The 150 Friends Club was born.

Rehearsals started in January 2013 after Goo called up some of his favorite musicians from around London. Almost immediately, it felt like a good thing – whatever it was.

David Goo – Vocals, guitar
Mariya Brachkova – Vocals, percussion, keys, design
