2015 may have brought the last days of the mighty Bellowhead - but don't be too because the just as mighty Treacherous Orchestra are on the rise.   

On stage Treacherous Orchestra are hugely entertaining, mixing their original tunes with theatrical anarchic rock attitude. Here is a band that is playing at the next level, technical and impressive, yet impossibly raw, whose shows are always vital and make the audience feel truly alive in the moment. 

A Treacherous Orchestra gig is quite unlike anything else. The players set a true musical course that continues to build and build. Through their music the band take the listener on a journey through many moods, emotions and tempos often within moments!

Treacherous Orchestra make a very Scottish trance music with fevered banjo and accordion motifs, highly charged bagpipe licks, and driving and sometimes charmingly wayward fiddle lines. The sound is very industrial, as well as industrious, yet there's much joyfulness and emotional release as well as reflective links and gentler acoustic passages for contrast. 

Anyone who has seen Treacherous Orchestra perform will know that they are a phenomenal live band.”

“Their sound is traditional Scottish booted firmly into the 21st century… genuinely exciting musical ideas: phrases, changes of rhythm and mood, and never a dull moment”
