Gemma - Vocals
Actually pretty new to the live music scene Gemma has been quietly developing her vocal skills in private over the last couple of years. We certainly think its been worth the wait and are pretty sure you will too. This is one lady who will make damn sure the audience are having a good time, and puts a lot into her performance making sure you have a truly awesome night.
a trusty SM58
Gemma will have a vodka and coke please...
Luke - Drums
Luke has it in his blood, being the youngest of an extended family of musicians, and will be the first to admit that he has big shoes to fill, to follow in the footsteps of his elders. Luke has been writing, recording, performing and touring for the last 12 years and is likely to be on his last breath before he stops. Luke is currently in an originals band and owns and runs a recording studio in Reading. Music is what he does, which is just as well as he's useless at anything else. He's a bit of a drum nerd, so avoid talking about them unless you have a couple of hours spare. A spiced rum and coke should shut him up.
Drums - Gretsch Brooklyn/US Custom hybrid (the only one in the world) 24x14, 13x9, 16x16, 14x8
Cymbals - Zildjian 15/18/18/23
Sticks - ProMark 5A Oak
Heads - Evans ST Dry, EC2 and Heavyweight
At his feet - Tama Iron Cobras
Luke will have a spiced rum and coke please...
Dave - Guitar
Dave first got interested in guitar as a kid when for no reason an acoustic appeared in the house but didn't get hooked until round 15 and then bought an old bass for a few quid. A few years later and he swaps back to guitar and has been with it since. He's played Reggae with The Sons of Albion, pop covers with This Way Up and all sorts of Blues with Animal House and The Blues Boys.
Guitars - Rees Stratalike, G&L ASAT
Amp - Cornell Romany Pro / Vox AC30 CC2X
At his feet - AMT Japanese Girl Wah, Lovepedal Kalamazoo Overdrive. Mooer Optical Compressor, T-Rex Mudhoney Distortion, T-Rex Roommate reverb, Keeley Sea Foam Chorus, EHX Synth9, Empress Tape Delay and T-Rex Tunemaster Tuner. All fixed to a T-Rex Pedal Board with DC from a T-Rex Fuel Tank Chameleon power supply strapped out of the way underneath with a Line6 Relay G30 wireless system. Oh, and George 'L jacks and cable mostly.
Dave will have a single malt please...
Del - Bass
With a musical career that starts in the late sixties Del has played and recorded with a bunch of music icons over the years. Having helped them out at a few gigs he was invited to join 'Them' (known for the garage rock standard "Gloria" and launching Van Morrison's musical career) to tour Italy and Europe. An offer he declined due to other playing commitments. How different things might have been... Then there is a little talked about story of a private south London party he was playing at and Cliff Richard but you'll need to press him for more on that. Fast forward to the 90's and he's playing with local bluesers Rod Garfield Blues Band and later Blues on Red and The Blues Boys. Then he has a stint with The Jazz Assassins before joining No Way Out but can also still be found playing Jazz with the Quartet Equinox.
Guitars - Musicman Stingray although a 62 Fender Precision might see the light of day once in a while.
Amp - Ashdown ABM C410-500 EVO II with the sub out linked to an EBS Gorm 350 1x15".
