Since first picking up a guitar in a School music room age 14,

Richard has played in blues bands, rock bands, function bands, country bands and now a tribute band.

Having played festivals and support slots to headline acts he has a wealth of experience (not to mention stories) that he brings to the band.


The attention to detail in analysing Gary Kemp's guitar style and sound has been a real challenge and a pleasure.


Richard believes he has nailed Gary’s sound which is an integral part of making the band sound as close to the real deal as possible.
