THE BAND


We're a Swansea band playing a cocktail of blues, rock and soul from the 60s and 70s with a few surprise shots thrown in. We've all played in a range of different bands before but got together to play our favourite numbers whilst some of us can still remember them!


We're On the Road Again - now that COVID restrictions have eased we are ready to Rock your Party, Pub or Event!

Rob - bass and lead vocals started at 16 playing for a folk rock group Tarragon, then Rattleland, followed by Jessop. During the 80's Rob was lead vocalist and bass for Two's Company then had a well earned break for 30 years. He came back to join Bear Bones folk blues trio and the Bear Band, and we're very glad he moved to South Wales and is sharing his talents with us at Metrobeats!

Trevor - lead guitar and backing vocals has played in a number of bands since the early 70's in and around London, including a stint with the Liz Owen Band culminating in a sellout gig at the prestigious Half Moon in Putney in 2014. He then moved to Swansea - London's loss is our gain, so it`s Onwards and Upwards !!!!

Stuart - guitar and backing vocals. Played with bands in the 60s and 70s - did other stuff - got old (and bored) - started gigging again in 2013 - likes blues, rock and all sorts!
