The Confident Tricksters are a rather unusual hybrid - a Doncaster/Sheffield band.  They played their first gig at The Glassmaker (now The Glasshouse), Doncaster on 8th October 1983 and as of Nov 2022 are still together and playing gigs.

The Confident Tricksters played a lot around Sheffield in the 80s, particularly at The Leadmill, where the picture was taken in 1989 around the time of their Shipwrecked Again album.  Occasionally, the Band have been augmented by other musicians, but they have generally kept to being a 3 piece.
