MEET JIVE EXPRESS

JOHHNY M.  

LEAD VOCALS, COWBELL, WIG, SCARF.


JOHNNY M. IS HIGHLY REGARDED AS ONE OF THE BEST FRONTMAN VOCALISTS TO BE

FOUND. A TRUE PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINER. HE SPENT MANY YEARS WORKING AS A VERY SUCCESSFUL SOLO ARTISTE ENTERTAINING AT SOME OF THE UK’S TOP VENUES.

“ASK HIM”.

IF THE BAND'S NICE TO HIM AND HE GETS HIS OWN PEG IN THE DRESSING ROOM HE'LL SING IN TUNE.

HE’S ALSO A MASTER OF TV QUIZ SHOWS. HE’S APPEARED ON SUDO-Q --THE PRICE IS RIGHT (WINNER) – THE WEAKEST LINK (WINNER) AND OTHERS BUT WHEN ASKED IF HE’D LIKE TO BECOME A FAMOUS TV PRESENTER, HE COULDN’T THINK OF THE ANSWER!!!

HE GOT SICK OF ALL THE MONEY AND AUDIENCE ADULATION SO HE JOINED JIVE EXPRESS.

HA HA.

HE WORKS TIRELESSLY WITH HIS AUDIENCE TO GUARANTEE THEM ALL AN EVENING TO REMEMBER.



ROB KUCH.

RHYTHM GUITAR, VOCALS, PLECTRUM HOARDER.


ROB’S ONE OF THE BEST RHYTHM GUITARISTS IN THE BUSINESS. HE STARTED WORKING THE CLUBS IN 1968 AND HAS STEADILY GOT WORSE. HE REMEMBERS ABOUT THREE CHORDS NOW. HE WISHES HE'D LEARNED BASS GUITAR 'COS THEY MOSTLY HAVE ONLY FOUR STRINGS.

HE LOVES HIS ES335 GUITAR THAT MUCH THAT HE KEEPS IT LOCKED UP AT HOME AND NEVER PLAYS IT! 

HA HA.

HE’S PLAYED AROUND EUROPE ENTERTAINING UK FORCES AND WORKED WITH SOME OF THE WORLD’S LEADING BIG NAMES IN MUSIC.

“ASK HIM”.

HE WISHED HE’D BEEN BORN RICH INSTEAD OF GOOD LOOKING.



KENNY BARTON.

LEAD GUITAR, VOCALS, MANDOLIN, SAXOPHONE, GOB-IRON, TUNING FORK.


KENNY’S BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY FOR OVER TWO HUNDRED YEARS NOW. HE WAS ONCE HALF OF THE FAMOUS “BARTON BROTHERS” COMEDY DUO AND WORKED AT THE LONDON PALLADIUM.

“ASK HIM”.

HE ONCE WORKED AS A DOUBLE ACT WITH OUR BASS PLAYER DAVE AS A PANTOMIME HORSE BUT NEITHER OF THEM WILL ADMIT TO BEING THE REAR END.

HE’S MET SOME OF THE TOP NAMES IN ENTERTAINMENT AND IS HIGHLY RESPECTED BY HIS PEERS.

WE LIKE HIM PLAYING THE SAXOPHONE ‘COS IT STOPS HIM SINGING.

HA HA.

HE’S OUR MUSICAL MD AND SORTS OUT THE BAND’S MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS AND HARMONIES. A MULTI-TALENTED MUSICIAN AND A GREAT ASSET TO THE BAND.



DAVE HARKER

BASS GUITAR, VOCALS, PIN-UP.


DAVE HAS WON MANY AWARDS INCLUDING "BEST BASS GUITARIST IN HIS HOUSE". A MULTI-TALENTED SESSION MUSICIAN DAVE WAS ALSO THE BASS GUITARIST IN THE FAMOUS GLITTERBAND PLAYING ALL OVER THE UK, EUROPE, NORWAY & DENMARK. HE'S WORKED  WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE INDUSTRY.

"ASK HIM".

HE STARTED PLAYING WHEN HE WAS JUST 13 AND IS NOW BEGINNING TO SHOW SOME IMPROVEMENT.

HA HA.

JIVE EXPRESS RESCUED HIM FROM STARDOM AND NOW HE LIKES WORKING IN THE UK 'COS HE'S LOADED SO THE POOR PAY'S NOT A PROBLEM. 

LOTS OF PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS KNOW DAVE AND IF THERE'S SOMEBODY IN THE AUDIENCE THAT HE WANTS TO IMPRESS HE'S BEEN KNOWN TO TUNE UP BEFORE GOING ON STAGE.



FRANK PRESTON.

DRUMS, OTHER PERCUSSION. ANYTHING THAT CAN MAKE A NOISE USING STICKS. VOCALS.


FRANK IS A SUPERHUMAN METRONOME. HE HOLDS THE BAND TOGETHER AND IS A TRUE PRO. HE’S BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY SINCE HE WAS A YOUNGSTER AND HAS SPENT MANY YEARS WORKING WITH FAMOUS NAMES ACROSS EUROPE.

“ASK HIM”.

HE STARTED PLAYING BY TAPPING OUT A BEAT ON HIS BATHROOM DOOR 'COS THE LOCK WAS BROKEN.

HE’S NO NEED FOR MONEY THAT’S WHY HE ENJOYS BEING WITH JIVE EXPRESS.

HA HA.

WE CALL HIM MR. FANTASTIC ‘COS HE WAS THE DRUMMER WITH THE FAMOUS RECORDING BAND “THE FANTASTICS” – “SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW” AND OTHER HITS.

ONE OF THE NICEST GUYS YOU’LL EVER MEET AND A WELL-RESPECTED MUSICIAN IN THE INDUSTRY.

KEN DANIELS.

ROADIE EXTRAORDINAIRE. HUMAN "MAINS TESTER"

ONE OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED ROADIES TO BE FOUND. HE'S ALWAYS AWARE OF THE BAND'S NEEDS - LIKE FREE DRINKS AND CRISPS. HE NOW REMEMBERS TO TURN THE PA SPEAKERS TOWARDS THE AUDIENCE SO THAT THE VOCALS CAN BE HEARD. HA HA. 

KEN'S MET MANY BIG NAMES IN HIS CAREER LIKE THE WHO & QUO.

"ASK HIM".

WE THOUGHT THAT HE WAS A WISE CHAP WHO EXERCISED GOOD JUDGEMENT UNTIL WE FOUND OUT THAT HE WAS A HULL FC SUPPORTER BUT WE'VE ALL AGREED NOT TO HOLD IT AGAINST HIM.

WE LIKE HIM WORKING WITH US 'COS HE'S LOADED SO HE DOESN'T NEED PAYING.

AN INVALUABLE ASSET TO THE BAND AND WE'D BE LOST WITHOUT HIM.
