BFriendly are a 'feel good' reggae duo that founder member Ian Haywood created with his wife Cathy. Ian has been an avid fan of reggae music since his teenage years and his amazing varied musical career has included playing classical piano concerts, working in a 12 piece soul band, a UK Bee Gees tribute band and more recently being a member of chart scoring band 'Peace On Your Plate.'
The duo’s new 'feel good' style of reggae along with family friendly anecdotal humour has been wowing festival audiences in 2022. Ian writes and sings about anything from Coffee to Honey Bees and Yucca plants to Curry. They have their own dance and even a song about the mother in law!
Now, with 2 albums, 'Be Friendly', and 'Working Man' released and a 3rd in the pipeline, BFriendly has the ultimate in feel good repertoire for these challenging times.
BFriendly will guarantee to put a smile on people’s faces and have them tapping their feet and singing along in no time!
'I love the new album from BFriendly. My son and I have listened to every track, and it has had us tapping our feet and singing along. Our favourite song, The Sunny Day Song, has such a positive message and a great vibe. And great production too. I really look forward to hearing these songs live and wish BFriendly a well-deserved success'

I have had BFriendly perform at two of my online events - World Vegan Month Online Festival and Christmas Special Show on my World Vegan Market.
They were brilliant and the viewers at home loved their performances, which I could see from their comments.
BFriendly's style of music, which I would describe as contemporary sing-along, bop-along reggae pop is what I feel the world needs right now.
BFriendly's songs not only make you feel good, but each of them has a message. I am finding that I am still singing their songs in my head.
If you are an events organiser, I would definitely recommend hiring BFriendly to perform at your event. You and your audience will absolutely love it!
