Steve Slator- Guitarist /Backing vocals


Steve got his first grade in piano at the tender age of 8 taking up the guitar soon after with his first live gig whilst still at primary school. Since then, he has been performing live and recording with a wealth of musicians of diverse styles. Besides working for the last ten years as a professional guitar tutor, he has recorded and produced several albums with sales around the globe through the online digital-giants such as iTunes and amazon. His previous band shared a busy decade supporting bands such as Deacon Blue, Heather Small and Go west, to name a few. Having had his musical-awakening during the 80s, he is loving every minute of his second-youth as he gets to perform alongside those eightiespop- icons that kick-started his musical career all those years ago!

Sam Chapman- Keyboards


Sam has been involved in the music industry for many years. At just 17 he was fortunate enough to sign a major record deal with RCA (Sony/BMG).Sam was a keyboard player in the 90s TV boy-band North & South and has extensive experience in the studio and on stage. North & South were a modern day equivalent of the 1960s chart toppers The Monkees and formed a central role in the BBC childrens TV comedy show No Sweat. The show followed the exploits of struggling boy band North & South consisting of Jimmy, Greg, Miles and Giles (played by Sam Chapman). However the band became so popular that they became a real life band who scored four top 40 hits within just 12 month including an impressive number 7 debut hit single Im A Man Not A Boy in May 1997. The band also headlined the own UK tour and supported Mark Owen of Take That on his European Tour. Sam has now left his Top of The Pops and MTV days behind him in order to pursue a teaching career in music but still loves producing music and playing live.

Tom Waite- Drums/Percussion


Tom first picked up the sticks at the age of 11 and was playing live by the age of 13. He is lucky enough to have had guidance in his early days from the legendary Gilson Lavis (ex-squeeze member, Jools Holland) and has covered a diversity of styles over the years. Tom has been a regular to touring the UK and Europe accumulating some admirable credits for his musical CV. Tom currently drums for the Wild Boys, The Look and Bullettooth as well as teaching.
