Brought together by folk collector, Peter Kennedy, the Band was formed in May 1990, and since then has been playing in clubs and pubs and for weddings and dances - mainly in the Gloucestershire area but occasionally venturing further afield. Since they began, one of their most regular venues was "The Pelican", where they enjoy the friendly environment of local travellers and the landlord's understanding of the social values of popular music

In the past, THE HOOLEY GANG have included: Paul Bianek (voc/ tenor banjo)/ Kevin Benn (whistle)/ Brian Roberts "Beaz" (harmonica)/ Simon Davies (voc/ bodhran/ bones)/ Daniel James (gtr/ banjo)/ Nicholas Johnson (conc/ mel/ whistle)/ Peter Kennedy (voc/ fid/ mel/ kazoo/ drum)/ Mark (tea-chest bass/ mandolin)/ Peter Miln (fiddle)/ Nic Taylor (drums)
