The Better Half grew out of a shared passion for music between husband and wife team, Sue and Steve Lackey.   Sue brings her pure tone and highly melodic female vocals.   Steve brings 40 years of guitar playing experience and a truly expressive voice.   Together, they cover a lot of ground with a deep, genre-fluid songbook of upbeat, infectious tunes - authentic music ranging from the 50s to the current decade.  Check out our repertoire page to see the wide range of artists we cover.   Whether performing as a duo, trio, quartet, or even a sextet (we scale up according to the event, footprint, budget).  The Better Half is the ideal choice for entertainment at bars, restaurants and private functions.   The reviews section of the website gives you an indication of the type of feedback we receive.
