Jon

saxophone, vocals

Jon has a heterogeneous taste in music, having being involved in choral music, a rock choir and playing in a jazz and swing band. However, he is most at home in a soul band with his sax contributing to the unforgettable sound of a horn section. So from Mozart through Miller to Memphis Horns – he’s got it covered. You'll recognise him - he's the one wearing the hats.

Rebekah

trumpet & keyboard

 

Rebekah is a trumpet and keyboard-playing, German-speaking, Otis Redding-loving West Cumbrian, She's played in brass bands and orchestras, swing and soul bands, and sings in a rock choir. She likes nothing better than belting our soul riffs, but also loves painting, and her illustrations feature in Soul Junction's media. She wishes she had 4 hands.

Alan

drums

 

Alan started drumming at the age of 12 and played his first gig at 14, too young for the venues he played in!

Alan has a rock background, recording 5 albums with different bands on the Beggars Banquet and Island record labels, picking up single of the week in NME, essential album of the month in Sounds, and a 4-star review in Melody Maker. He toured the UK, Europe and North America, and was based in Los Angeles for some time, before getting a ‘grown-up’ job in the UK.

Alan was pleased to be asked to be the touring drummer with Barry Melton from Country Joe and the Fish on his UK tour, and of course he was delighted to join Soul Junction!

Here he is, racing his beloved Malamutes.

Bob

bass

Bob has played in bands since his schooldays. He enjoys playing bass and loves getting into the Motown groove. Now enjoying the free time that retirement offers, his plan is to get to grips with his mandolin and banjolele. Pleasing news for the neighbours with less of an issue with low frequencies!

Tim

His early years were spent on the North West circuit playing in cover bands, before a spell in London, prior to playing and studying in Italy for a few years.
