Adam, our distinguished leader, sings and plays a mean guitar.  In between great vocals, he still manages to slip in the odd breathtaking guitar lick.  Also, to distinguish/distance himself from his backing band, he wears a slick white tailored jacket.

Frank too has played almost everywhere, starting with the Sheffield Club Circuit in the 60s, to Jazz Trios, 2000 onwards. Enough said....

Katie, our newest member comes highly recommended on the vocal front.  Her past musical background has also raised its head by proving, "when needs must", to be a very capable electric bass player.

Clive, a tea chest bass skiffler in the 50s, then a member of many other bands and latterly part of several Bluegrass bands.  A fondness for Beatles songs has recently raised his profile with regards to a possible future exposition of this type of material.

Wendy, having performed in venues from The Royal Albert Hall to me Mam's Front Room, brings vocals and occasional percussion to our ever-increasing wacky song book.   She is proud to be the lyricist on most of our fun compositions, 'Donald the President', Amey Amey, etc, etc.
