Lead vocals, Guitar

What's for tea?Generally found asleep between 9 and 5, singer/songwriter LazyBones swings (slowly) into action around tea time. Also known as 'Captain Spandex' and other unmentionables, his laid-back approach suggests narcolepsy, but stick a mic in his hand and his dynamic vocal technique and delivery more than make up for it.

Lead guitar, Vocals

John MurrayHailed as the best guitarist in his street, John Murray is known for his ability to bend bum notes until they fit, lending an emotional overtone to his musical interpretation. Indeed, people are often seen crying openly after his noteable performances. With almost as much ability as ego, John is the epitome of a complete plank spanker.

Percussion, Backing vocals

Pat Pat Lemon says he is one of the most versatile drummers around. With a feel for genres from rock right through to strict tempo, he lays down solid backline. We sometimes offer a prize for anyone who can see him behind his kit, so far, Pat is the only one to have won this. The only way we know he's there is the noise he makes. Pats drums

Bass, Guitar, Backing Vocals

IanBass guitarist Ian posesses a wonderfully large stick and thumps it frequently. He is renown for it, people coming from miles around to witness the event. He usually does it in public, but will perform privately for a price.

He also plays the bass!

Hammond Organ, Synth and Electric Piano

JohnBoasting a huge organ, John Ackroyd certainly knows how to get the best from his equipment; his portamento is especially impressive! Two pre-requisite for that 'classic rock sound'; John's Hammond Organ growls impressively and his Leslie Cabinet er, swirls in perfect sympathy. Very good really!
