Following a campaign of advertising and auditions akin to the search for the actress to play Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind, the band are pleased to announce that a new drummer has joined our happy throng!
I know I speak for all of us when I extend a warm welcome to Ian Bee, who sucessfully beat off all other applicants with a fantastic audition.
Ian is a professional drummer and you can read all about him at his website at
There will be a bit of a cross over whilst our Ian Astrop (our current drummer), plays the next few gigs so that the guys can get Ian Bee up to speed.
At least with the same name that's one less thing for us to have to change in the band line up!
Now that we have Ian Bee in the line up, we will be actively seeking more gigs so keep checking the live dates or if you know of any venues that might welcome us then please let Andy know.
