DAVE HARKER

LEAD VOCALS, BASS GUITAR, FOOTSWITCH.


Dave is highly regarded as one of the best frontman vocalists to be

found. An exceptionally talented guitarist, he's won many awards including "best bass guitarist in his house" As a professional entertainer he spent many years touring with the famous Glitterband.

“Ask him”.

He started playing when he was just 13 and is now beginning to show some improvement.

Ha ha.

If the band's nice to him and he gets his own peg in the dressing room he'll sing in tune.

He got sick of all the money and audience adulation so he joined Jive Express.

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. If there's somebody in the audience that he wants to impress he's been known to tune up before going on stage.

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, HARMONICA, 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’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. He buys a new guitar every now and then just to remind us all that he's loaded. Ha ha.

Occasionally, just to keep us all on our toes, he'll start a song in the wrong key!

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.

FRANK PRESTON

DRUMS, VOCALS, PERCUSSION, ANYTHING HE CAN HIT WITH HIS STICKS.

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.
