Meet the Band
Johnny Bo is our main vocalist plus he adds some cool percussion. When Johnny Bo visits Liverpool he and his mates like to frequent the Casbah Coffee Club. When Johnny Bo gets hungry he likes to eat a Lancashire Hotpot.
Sir Michael is our main guitar man plus he adds keyboards & vocals. When Michael is not rockin he supports the Hereford United Football Club. When Michael visits Primrose Hill he likes to have afternoon tea at The Manna Restaurant.
Ricky Domino adds some cool vocals & great guitar, Ricky once had a date with fashion model Twiggy where they strolled up & down Carnaby street like they were royalty. They went for a stroll when Ricky's Morris Minor wouldn't start.
Brian Bee is our drummer and adds vocals, Brian loves wearing bell bottoms and he never misses an episode of his favorite TV show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Brian likes to wear his new Bowler hat when taking his evening constitutional.
Larry C plays bass guitar and adds vocals, his pad comes complete with beaded curtains & a lava lamp. Larry can go days eating nothing but Bangers & Mash. Larry likes to visit Weatherfield and hang out at The Rovers Return.
The best part about watching these guys is that it’s real! Bass man spot on, also lead man with vocal effects from the old school catalog sounding righteous, to the proper keyboard sound, great separate and unique guitars, and all the strings in between all riding through an era of music that we all know and love. Add Brian’s flare and we have an exceptional combo. Well done Lads! Rob B 519 Band
