Simon has been playing bass since the 1990s

In the last ten years, Simon has discovered the joys of playing covers, he plays covers occasionally with Hot Legs, regularly with Solace, and has recently joined MonkeyShock, he also plays with The Jason Hendrix Experience, which is a Jimi Hendrix tribute band, and with Samuel Paul Williams.

Simon also enjoys jamming with other musicians, and can be seen playing a wide range of music at Jam Nights at Mr Bumble in Camberley, and also at The Plough in Tilehurst and The Palmer Tavern in Reading.

Graham has been playing drums since the 70s, primarily in function bands, but has also enjoyed contributing to several originals bands in that time (one of which, remarkably, still exists), as well as big bands, show bands and symphony orchestras.

Basically he’s happy to turn his hand to anything percussive with like-minded musos!
