Members Of Band

Melissa Spouse

Melissa is an awesome young vocalist, aged only fifteen, but don’t let this deceive you. She has an outstanding natural voice and a massive future ahead of her. People are stunned when they hear her sing. Due to Mel's age she is covered by a performance licence which covers her on licenced premises

Al Theriot

Vocalist and guitar player Alan Theriot loves singing so much he caught an aeroplane to America just because he wanted the locals to hear what the blues sounded like. He was so good they gave him a sackful of cash and railroaded him out of town.

Jonny Pollard

Guitarist and music coach Jonny Pollard plays his guitar for five hours a day, but claims he is better at wearing a hat because he practices that ten hours a day.

Gordon Smith

Drummer Gordon Smith is a new addition to the group. He is usually right at home behind a full set of drums but at our gig's you will usually see him playing the wooden box which he sits on. He is also very keen on the karaoke and is usually the first person to get up and get it going into full swing with others joining in.

Kayleigh Ryder

Kayleigh (or 'the giggler' as we should call her) has just joined the group on keyboard. At 15 she is fantastically talented on the piano and will be a great accompaniment to the other instruments. I'm sure she is going to fit in well with the rest of us and we would like to welcome her aboard. Due to Kayleigh's age she is covered by a performance licence which covers her on licenced premises.

Mark Dutton

our sound engineer/party DJ and chauffeur. He's always at home behind the mixing desk and is responsible for setting up equipment and keeping an eye on the levels whilst we are performing. He's also responsible for taking any booking or inquiries so if you have a question please drop him a line.
