Derek and Paul Robson were originally together musically in the 1970's, as part of the legendary North East of England band Cirkus. They were extremely popular and recorded some surperb albums that still sell today, and are sought after by record collectors.
Paul Harris is the lead singer in Newcastle UK band Prognonsis, who are currently performing around Northern England, and Simon Todd is a singer/songwriter, also from the UK. In 2014 he supported Boo Hewerdine on part of his UK tour.
Dave and Nick were once a duo called Crowded Nation. They recorded numerous albums between 1985 and 1991. They played live many times across North Tyneside and South Northumberland, including live on ITV with ex boxer Frank Bruno, for charity. Their closest brush with fame came in 1992 when Island records showed interest in their music.
Joe Wealleans is the father in law of Dave. Joe is a new starter on the guitar, and was thrilled to play on one of the album tracks in 2013.
