The Bevin Boys can play electrically or in some cases acoustically - using a stripped down drum kit and banjo. The band have their own PA system and are more than happy to supply music during breaks, and/or to lend a microphone for speeches. The guitarist Peter Elliot also offers classical guitar (both additionally to the band and as a stand alone act) playing a mixture of classical, jazz and pop.
