Tim, our long standing double bass player and a founder member of the band, has hung up his bass (big hook!) and retired. Although we shed a tear when Tim left we are very happy to welcome Alex Ashida to the band. No she’s not a boy but we won’t be changing our name – she’s promised to get some trousers! Alex is a fantastic bass player and a great singer. We’ve already done a few gigs with her and (stop listening Tim) it sounds wonderful.
