The Above Average Weight Band…

RickHeadAfter many years of lonely driving, Rick perfected his astonishing vocal power from shouting at the many colleagues he met on the road. His ability to shatter an ear drum at 100 yards has fascinated the scientific world, as well as many of the farming community anxious to substitute his larynx for their rather outmoded scarecrow population. Often referred to as “Voice”, he once omitted the “i”, and if the cap fits wear it…… Vice!

KevHeadKev here is not only a veritable and qualified genius nee Professor of valuable and interesting things when it comes to Fruit Fly’s and genetics, but has the most incredible style on the guitar. No doubt at all if inclined he could turn pro but working for a university, why make it harder than it need be! Also been heard on Radio 4…… for his day job though!

PeteHeadWell here is the new boy, welcome Pete Poyda who joins us in November 2012 after Trev has moved onto pastures and challenges anew. With a great day job (guitar technician) Pete has quite a musical heritage and fits the bands line up perfectly, i.e. not undersized. He claims real guitars have too many strings so he stopped playing them 12 years ago (not true I suspect) and turned to the bass, a fortunate change of events for us!

RobHeadWith an agricultural background and sense of humour, Rob is large and handles the money! The guitar looks tiny in his hand (other things in his hand are tiny!) but his talents are obvious and he can even sing too although his favourite lyrics are “doggy doo doo”! Speaks as it is, laughs louder and sports a zest and enthusiasm for life larger than his frame….. just don’t mention health and safety in front of him..

GazHeadGaz or Gazzer is the bloke at the back responsible for keeping it all together, not that you would notice. He claims tongue in cheek that he is brilliant and never goes out of time or misses a beat. Famed for diplomacy when pressed, he usually manages to control Health and Safety matters with a grin. He gets a real workout from the band as there is a lot of energy around but is never, repeat never allowed to sing, but is now sometimes allowed at the front to percuss…..

Just a gentle reminder, we are playing at The Cuttle Long Itchington on Saturday 20th December and will be showcasing a few new songs. It’s always been a favourite venue and with this being the last Saturday before Christmas we are hoping for a great crowd.

It really should be a great night out!!!
