The Carnabys are a five piece band hailing originally from Richmond who have received success since they won Hard Rock Rising in 2013. As the winners The Carnabys enjoyed a global tour of performing at many Hard Rock cafe venues, they also supported Bruce Springstein at his performance for British Summer Time in Hyde Park.
Guitarist and vocalist Ben Gittins and Jack Mercer have completed the Higher Diploma at ICMP. In 2014 the band played Isle of Wight Festival, Circolo Magnolia in Milan and supported the infamous Blondie on four legs of their UK tour.
2015 saw the release of their debut album, "No Money on the Moon", and further live performances including a sold-out show with Lulu, and headlining ICMP's very own Tunnel to Tunnel festival.
