My husband has been in bands since he was in his teens, and although that is longer ago than he cares to think about, he is still in a band and gigging – and away from his drums he’s in a ukulele band as well!
When I first knew him, long before we actually got together, he was very involved in brass bands, but also in a small jazz combo, and a larger all-stars jazz band, and in various pit orchestras, and in a whole variety of other musical enterprises. Shortly after we became a couple he joined a band called Driving Force – it was a brilliant band, really amazing with great guys and when I had a special birthday a few years ago, they reformed to play at my party!
We left the north and Driving Force and came to the south-west; here he was a founder of what might be loosely called a Celtic rock group called Celtic Shambles – Celtic for what they played, Shambles for the way they played it… in fact they were very good, very entertaining and very popular.
Then he joined a rock band doing covers and they were initially called the Stealers, then they became 7 to 4, after they reorganised and a seven piece became a four piece…
Now with another change in line-up and now writing and performing their own numbers they are the Lemon Sharks!
And now I can share their music through Spotify!
… and you can also get them from Amazon:
