The original Bass Instincts 1983-1988 made a name for themselves on the ceilidh scene and on record. As well as playing for local dances the band played at regular dance events Oxfolk, Newick etc and at festivals, Sidmouth, Whitby, Holmfirth etc. and was featured on BBC's Folk on Two.
In 1997 four of the original members reformed the Bass Instincts and have put together a new repertoire for occasional gigs, festivals etc. Bass Instincts play a mixture of English, Irish, and European music.
