They soon added lead guitarist Roy Harrill, who in turn recruited drummer Jason Allen. Working as a four-piece band, they quickly built up a musical rapport and a fledgling set, with Roy handling lead vocal duties.
Following an 8-month spell in 2012 with vocalist Emily Oldham, during which time the group acquired The Medicine Show handle, the band found lead singer Teri Souter.
The five-piece then commenced revamping the set list in readiness for the debut performance at RibFest in Spain, which took place in May 2013.
Since that eventful night in Ribatejada, The Medicine Show have played numerous times in the West of England, building up a significant following. The repertoire has grown steadily, as has the sound of the group, with all five members contributing to the rich vocal sound.
The Medicine Show play cover versions of well-known songs, often adding their own original twist to the music. The set list spans many genres, and is drawn from seven decades of popular music.
Many of the band's appearances take place at private functions, but The Medicine Show can be seen and heard in West Country pubs every few months.
