A popular band in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. They play Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2000). Despite their name, the band is actually an all-male octet.

In the 2005 film adaptation, only six members are shown. All of them are played by well-known British musicians:

  • Jarvis Cocker (Pulp): vocalist Myron Wagtail
  • Steve Mackey (Pulp): bassist Donaghan Tremlett
  • Phil Selway (Radiohead): drummer Orsino Thruston
  • Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead): guitarist Kirley Duke
  • Jason Buckle (All Seeing I): guitarist Heathcote Barbary
  • Steven Claydon (Add N to (X)): keyboardist/bagpiper Gideon Crumb

They play three songs in the movie: "Do the Hippogriff," "This Is the Night," and "Magic Works."

They made a lenticular collectible card of Heathcote Barbary (with Myron Wagtail) that came with Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs.
