The Band's success is due to the fact that they break down the musical boundaries created through the Generations, by providing popular music which appeals to all ages.
This is achieved by incorporating into the band the breathtaking talents of 2 young musicians; Amy Holder (Lead Vocals & Percussion) and Harry Wilkinson (Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar and Drums). The combined energy projecting from this gifted teenage duo, revitalises the old standards we all know! while allowing them to inject their own influence, power and input through the modern numbers they perform. They are also a down-to-earth, hardworking gigging band and cannot live without rehearsals! This always results in everyone, young and old, going home after enjoying the sound of "Live" unprocessed music as it should be heard!
