Loveboat are a British Alternative rock band based in Sheffield. Formed in 2010, the group consists of Danny Lowe(vocals and bass), Daniel Lucian Mattias Botterill(guitar) and Dave Attwood(drums).

Formation and early years[edit]

Danny Lowe and Dave Attwood have been friends since school. They originally met when Dave auditioned to play in the Chesterfield band ‘The Dazy Age’ in which Danny played bass. When ‘The Dazy Age’ disbanded, Danny and Dave continue to play together in bands ‘The Insofars’ and 'Rumpus.' They met guitarist Daniel Lucian Mattias Botterill when they moved to Sheffield. Dan had previously played in the Sheffield-based band SWON (Supersonic Winds of Neptune)

They received their first national air-play thanks to Jon McClure from the band Reverend and the Makers. He put the Loveboat track Flying Into The Sun from the EP ‘Smiles And Bruises’ on a compilation CD of unsigned Sheffield bands.

He passed a copy to BBC Radio 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq who picked the ‘Loveboat’ track to play on his show.[1]

Danny Lowe also plays Bass Live for British Indie band Babybird


Their first album ‘Loveboat’ was released in December 2011 through their ‘bandcamp’ site.[2]

An EP entitled ‘Smiles and Bruises’ was released in May 2012.

In June 2012, the band released their latest EP called ‘Lizardeyes’
