Adam, our distinguished leader, sings and plays 3 chord sequences - most of the time!  Also, together with vocals, he still manages to demonstrate his expertise on the skiffle 'washboard'.   In pursuit of distancing himself from his backing band, he sometimes wears a white tailored jacket (see below).

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 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.
