Check out the various characters who make up our soulful sound opposite.



Steve, our soaring lead singer and guitarist. A founder member of the band, he's our King of Puns and the older brother (although he'll never admit it).


Rupert is our (usually) dependable baritone sax player.


Our fab drummer, who never missed a gig (until 2013). Rarely seen but always heard keeping us in time!


Our rhythm guitarist Terry looks after our sounds, keeps us all on the level and even sings on the odd occasion.


Leon is our brilliant tenor saxophone player and de facto musical director.


Pete is our notorious bass player, vocalist, and rapper (yes really!).


Rosie is our brilliant lead singer.  She also has multiple talents in acting, dancing and musical theatre.


Louis is our genius young rockstar - the newest and most versatile member of our band - trombone, bass, guitar, cowbell and vocals.
