At birth, Tom’s right arm was twice as long as his left and so, following medical advice, he took up the trombone as early as possible. Even though he has outgrown his defect, he is now one of the most in demand players and composers around.
Having sailed through his Physics degree, Tom can delight any passer-by with in depth knowledge of solar panels and their uses; indeed he is currently in talks with the UN about his solution to the world’s energy crisis. Tom is famous for inventing his own chord sequence (Green’s progression), holding the world record for the largest amount of balls juggled at one time (13), and being on the board of the International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE).
Rob’s bio coming soon!
Scott originates from the far Northern reaches of England and began his performing career alongside PJ & Duncan on Byker Grove. After his voice broke Scott’s acting career went into freefall and having travelled as far south as he felt comfortable to, he made his name as a drummer in Cambridge.
Numerous situations where the band wandered into the crowd leaving the confused Ginger Geordie trapped behind his instrument, led Scott to create a mobile drumkit. After mixed successes and the inevitable resultant back injury this has fallen by the wayside, but his expertise in Cuban and West-African music have allowed him to single-handedly hold down the groove on anything from a small furry animal to a beer bottle.
Vij’s bio coming soon!
Alongside saving lives and revelling in the latest “big tunes” in Cindies, Matt is one of the Funkeys’ trumpet heroes. He frequently complains if a tune goes higher than what he calls “The Range” but usually proceeds to play it anyway. The rest of the band have marked in their diaries the day he receives his medical licence as their emigration date to New Orleans. Outside the Funkeys, Matt enjoys rainbow trout fishing, watching reruns of the sexiest bits in Disney films, and is an active campaigner for the RSPCA (endangered monkey division).
