The Sette of Odde Volumes are a three piece band based in the Peak District. Specialising in laid back songs with a swing, popular classics performed in their own inimitable style, and an ever expanding repertoire of curiously odd originals, The Sette of Odde Volumes are available for public performances, events and private functions.
Contact us here! While you’re at it, why not slip off your shoes, make a cup of tea, and discover our newly recorded ten-track album, available to listen to and download here!
Have a look at our brand new video ‘Papier-mâché Effigy of You’.
During a weekly visit to my local record shop I also happened upon this rare gem; a first edition pressing of Johnny Winsome & the Silhouettes’ break-through hit ‘My Guardian Angel’. He’s so dreamy!
Come and see us entertaining the crowds at the ‘Handmade in the Hope Valley’ in Hathersage Methodist Hall on Saturday 30th November at 1.30pm. The event will feature some of the best local crafts as well as some tasty treats. Soak up the atmosphere listening to live music and munching on mince pies. Then join in with the Hathersage village Christmas lights and festivities at 4.30pm.
We kicked off our vernal engagements with a return visit to the beautiful ballroom in Sheffield City Hall where we entertained the crowds at Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair, followed by our premiere performance in the Green Man Gallery in Buxton; an intimate evening where we show-cased new compositions and old favourites.
In April we returned to The White Hart in Bradwell for a one-off evening of songs from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, primarily because we all love The Rocky Horror Picture Show (and dressing up).
Our next two gigs finally realised Tom’s dream of performing in two bandstands in the space of one weekend, with a gig at Hathersage Swimming Pool followed by a second in the gorgeous bandstand at Weston Park in Sheffield. Incidentally, the bandstand was built around 1900 and is a rare example of a fully glazed structure of this type. The Black Dyke band has also played there so we took more than the usual pride in our mouth trumpeting that day.
Later gigs in the year included a return visit to entertain the lovely people at Art in the Gardens, the annual celebration of all things creative held in the beautiful Botanical gardens of Sheffield. We are lucky to visit such amazing places.
A recent gig was an emotional one as we played Tales & Tunes at the Penny Pot Cafe for the last time. The Penny Pot in Edale was the location of our first gig as a band just four years ago, and has provided an intimate and welcoming atmosphere in which to try out our new songs in front of unerringly friendly audiences.
Last year we were excited to return to Eroica Britannia with two performances over the Saturday and Sunday in the Britannia Arms and on the main stage respectively. We had a lovely time playing and were treated to a fly-over by a Spitfire as we played, which was a first!
A lovely time was had by all when we returned for an evening performance in the beautiful bandstand at the Hathersage outdoor pool, followed closely by another very enjoyable visit to Sheffield Botanical Gardens, where we entertained visitors to the preview evening of Art in the Gardens.
Here is the video for our song ‘One-man Band on the Run’.
And finally, here is a piece of art created by Tom the guitarist in celebration of a busy year (and balloons).
