With over twenty five years of experience working exclusively as a musician Dave has consistently given over one hundred performances per year across the UK and beyond, including many major festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, and Camp Bestival.

Exeter based drummer Lucy Piper is the daughter of the late blues guitarist, writer and broadcaster Julian Piper – widely acknowledged as a leading UK exponent and authority on blues. Lucy performed with Julian’s band Junkyard Angels. The band were often the backing band for touring musicians from the USA.

In the past few years Lucy has spent many nights performing in Mississippi, USA alongside many top musicians including the multi Blues Music Award winning Watermelon Slim.  In 2019 and 2020 Lucy worked with double Grammy Award winning label Ruf Records on their annual ‘Blues Caravan’. Lucy played drums on Ryan Perry’s album High Risk, Low Reward which was nominated for a Blues Music Award 2020. (Universally recognized as the highest award in blues music.)

Joining Dave and Lucy is tremendous bassist Sophie Lord. Mentored by Norman Watt-Roy bass player with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, Sophie has recently returned to her native county of Devon after living in London the last decade or so, as a bassist for hire. Sophie has performed with an eclectic mix of different artists including former members of Level 42, UK singles charting R&B artist Marlon Roudette, and punk legend Viv Albertine lead singer of The Slits.

Sophie currently performs with all star blues band Bluesclub which includes former members of Paul McCartney, Dire Straits, and The Pretenders, as well as playing with highly regarded Plymouth based blues musician Vince Lee.
