Tess

A graduate of Mountview Theatre School and a born entertainer, Tess has appeared in theatres and TV up and down the country, from the West End to TV dramas.

And what a voice, she can encompass styles from soft jazz too lung bursting rock.

A fully rounded performer whose dancing and between song “banter” are only rivalled by her stunning vocals and looks.

MICHELLE

MICHELLE

Has been wowing audiences since she was 5 years old, performing and writing her own material! Through her teens she won many singing competitions and went on to form the funk rock band Recovery, gigging original material for 5 years.

She appeared at the Music For You Festival where she was interviewed on BBC 2 and O’Neill Snowboarding have featured 2 of her tracks on a promo DVD which was also screened on Sky. As well as a incredibly versatile range she has a beautiful voice to match her looks.

JEFF
Guitar, Backing Vocals
JEFF

From acoustic ballads to funky wah solos, Jeff is passionate about performing, and there isn’t a style he’s not comfortable with (apart from high waistband trousers!)

His love affair with Telecasters is legendary around here. (He’s got to get out more!)

COLIN
Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals
COLIN

Colin’s the multi instrumentalist in the band (or mentalist for short!). Can play all manner of instruments, but what a bass player! Solid, tight and very funky.

Not a bad mover himself when the mood takes him.

Has been playing in bands since he was this high, and boy does it show.

PETE
Drums
PETE

A dedicated and versatile player, ever since he first picked up sticks at the tender age of three Pete has moulded himself into a fantastic player.

His professional gigging career started when he was 6 years old and holding his first London residency at the age of 11 he has gone on to make music with the likes of Lily Allen, Eric Clapton, John Cleary, and Paul Jones to name but a few. Also, since becoming a full time professional 7 years ago he has toured and gigged in Europe and the U.K for various artists and shows as both band member and as a freelance session player.
