LLOYD MASSINGHAM  |  Guitar

Lloyd is likely to be one of the finest guitar players you will ever get to see and has legendary status around York and beyond.  He spent years backing touring US artists and has appeared on countless albums that are cluttering up the racks of charity shops near you. 

 

He has a unique approach to playing guitar that baffles anyone who is watching him closely.

STEVE BRANDON  |  Hammond & Rhodes

Blues Matters got it right about Steve as described him as "wonderfully talented" and "the icing on the Cake".  We don't disagree.

 

What Steve has brought to the band is simply outstanding.
