Meet The bAND
Martyn - vocals
Mechanic by day, talented rock and pop singer at night, Martyn is the youngster of the group. Singing from the age of 6, Martyn has performed many solo acoustic gigs across the South West and has now stepped up to make the transition to full live band. With a versatile and characteristic voice, Marytn can sing just about anything you want him to sing!...unless you ask him to sing the spice girls. Oh wait, he'll sing that n'all!
Sam - drums
An accomplished drummer and multi-instrumentalist, Sam has 15 years experience playing in many bands across the U.K (and beyond!), spanning many different genres. Fully academically qualified, Sam holds music qualifications at A level, BTEC diploma, and BA Hons degree level. When he is not bashing away, you'll find him out on the roads behind the wheel of a double decker bus...better watch out!
ben - guitar
Ben has been playing guitar for over 15 years now and has played in several bands in and down the southwest, one of which supported the legendary Wurzles! Switching degrees to music at University, Ben has been relentlessly pursuing the path of guitaring perfection, mastering licks from Slash to Brian May. The family man of the group, Ben and his partner have recently celebrated the birth of their second baby girl.
dato - bass
Dato, the band's proud grandfather, began playing the six string guitar from the tender age of seven. Then, in ye olde ancient times of 1979, swapped to the five string bass guitar (that's right, your average four strings are just not enough for Dato!). He has played in countless cover bands all over his home country of Portugal. Three years ago, he hopped over to Bristol, where you might find him wearing a yellow shirt in a certain big Swedish furniture shop.
