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.
Clare would like to live in a world filled with sunshine, laughter and fabulous shoes. Her musical influences are eclectic and although her heart is in soul she can't quite shake off her love of everything 80's..including Martin Kemp. In her spare time she enjoys paragliding, white water rafting and fabricating biographies
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’s been involved in some interesting musical projects recently and has his own YouTube channel.
When he's not on his bike, Nick can be found behind a lovely looking Gretsch Maple kit. He's played in a number of bands providing a groove from Ska to Swing, Rock and Disco and of course Soul..
