Benji Heenan - Lead guitar and vocals

 

I started playing guitar when I was 13 and began lessons with the legend Andy Chadwick. From that point on that's when we started to rock 'n' roll! I like a wide variety of music from classic rock to pop and much more. My influences include Elvis, Michael Jackson, Bryan Adams, Extreme, Van Halen, Dire Straits, Cream, Yngwie Malmsteen, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, Duran Duran, Rush, to name a few. I play a Fender Strat, very basic distortion settings through a Black Star/Marshall. Very old-fashioned in my ways and driven by women! haha.

 

 

Daniel Heenan - Bass guitar, keyboards, vocals and midi-bass pedals

 

I started playing bass when I was 14 and, like my brother, started having lessons with Andy Chadwick. The genres of music I enjoy are classic rock, progressive rock, 80s British heavy metal and folk rock. My influences are Rush, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Uriah Heep, Thin Lizzy etc etc. The bassists I aspire to are Geddy Lee, Steve Harris, Roger Waters and Phill Lynott.

Four years ago, to extend our set list, I started to learn the keyboards. I am completely self taught and when we included the midi-bass pedals into our set, it really boosted our sound. I play a Rickenbacker and Fender basses (Geddy Lee signature and American deluxe)  I use Ampeg amps and cabinets. The keyboards i play are a Roland juno g and a yamaha Moxfx6. My midi pedals are roland pk-5's.

 

 

 

Ryan McFall - Drums

 

I am 31 years of age and live in Riddings and have done for most of my life. I have always been into rock music and always wanted to be in a band for as long I can remember. As a kid my favourite band was Adam and the Ants and other punk music but soon discovered rock. I love everything to do with drums and have many favourite drummers including Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Neil peart, Nicko McBrain, and more recently starting listening to Vinnie Colaiuta and Steve Gadd. My drum kit is a Mapex pro m all maple kit in red fade, 22x18, 8x8,10x9,12x10 and 14x12 floor and I have recently made a start in joining the paiste family.
