At the age of 12 Nick’s musical career began, playing as a drummer in local bands in and around Kent. 1990 saw Nick turn professional, playing on ships and throughout Europe for the armed forces. Moving over to the guitar Nick quickly established himself as a solo guitar vocal entertainer, performing in holiday camps, clubs and corporate functions. After a successful tour of Ibiza Nick settled on the picturesque island of Cyprus. Now back in the UK he looks forward to many more years of doing what he has been lucky enough to do, meeting wonderful people and performing in some great venues.
Steve started singing at 18 in band called The Rockin’ Furys, in which he played double bass and sang lead vocals. The band covered 50s and 60s rock ‘n’ roll and played all over the UK, including their first concert at Kempton Park Race Course and their last gig at Hyde Park, London, a benefit concert for Help Cancer. Having moved to Cyprus in 2005 Steve never looked back and after a decade has returned to the UK to rock and roll throughout the land. His set list alone should get toes tapping!
