About

Formed somewhere around 10/10/10, in a small instrument filled room in a certain local music shop, First Foot Soldiers are a Shetland based band who play a wide range of Rock and Pop classics from the last millennium. Their live debut came on Boxing Day of 2010, and the band have been marching forward ever since, playing gigs all over the Isles, in all sorts of venues, and supporting some big acts on the way.
