Saloon Dion, a fusion of 80s synth pop and clunky dance punk, are a 5 piece group hailing from Bristol & London.

In May 2021, the band were born from the still ‘hot to the touch’ kindling of a flaming pyre, built from a handful of Bristol's most loved post punk and surf rock outfits.

Brandishing themselves a supergroup from the off but sounding more like a jumped up bunch of supervillains clanging pieces of hot metal together, the band have carved out a name for themselves via their eclectic live shows and groove laden beats and bass riffs Often compared to the Happy Mondays, Beastie Boys and Gang of Four, the band have somehow managed to birth an entirely new sound, which to coin a phrase is more like the love child of Devo and Parque Courts.

Saloon Dion are Dave Sturgess (Vocals/Synth), Tom Simpkins (Guitar/Vocals), Taryn McDonnell (Guitar/Vocals), Luke Mullins (Bass) and Ben Molyneux (Drums).
