By the age of 7 he had already turned down a request from Metalica to go on a world tour as their drummer. Numerous other requests for Deans extraordinary talent poured in over the following years and he found himself playing with all sorts of bands across the South West learning his trade and perfecting his art.

Angie has been playing bass since 2003. She got bored of coming to see the band, so thought she might learn an instrument herself. Within three and a half minutes of picking up the bass she realised she was a natural and embarked on her new career. Angie has played bass with several different outfits across the South West and currently (2013) makes appearances with 3BF and the Alex Hart project.
