The Acoustic Duo


The Acoustic Measures are the duo version of the band.
The duo have been playing together for over 12 years and have developed an ecclectic set making them comfortable playing the upbeat songs needed for bars, pubs and small functions as the softer songs more suited for the more intimate occasions.

Over the years the duo have become many people’s number one choice for an acoustic fueled, fun Friday or Saturday night. Being so versatile and compact makes them the perfect option for a night’s entertainment no matter what the occasion.

“Good banter and great music, what more do you need”

Paul Carlisle Vocals / Guitar

Adam Buckell Guitar/Backing Vocals

“The best duo in Hertfordshire”

“The Measures sounded immense!”

“They were amazing 🙂 WOW totally blown away tonight.

“Happened upon these guys in the Garibaldi towards the end of an evening out in St Albans and it was a great way to end the evening. Some great guitar playing and tight vocal harmonies in their interpretation of some classic tunes. Highlight for me – an acoustic version of Sweet Child O’ Mine!”


“Got to love a couple of cool beers & the Acoustic Measures on an early Sunday evening. Cheers Adam & Paul……you never disappoint.” – Andy Thomkins

“Saw you at the Rising Sun… absolutely fantastic night. The joint was jumpin’ – I thought the floorboards were going to give way!”
