Guitar – Johnny Carr
This guitarist is one of the most underestimated players in Australia. He is a master player who has quitely performed with leading bands over many decades. He developed his skill at being a sensitive, creative and humble performer whilst raising a family, running a farm and being a generally nice fella. The abilities he brings to this band is a big advantage for his fellow players and the audience alike. A true and complete musician.
Keys – Peter Rourke
This talented player played for 5 years with successful Port Macquarie band ‘Reckless NRG’ before moving to Queensland to join Brisbane based 6 piece show band Three Dimension featuring ex Wickety Wak member Pahnie Jantzen. He then combined with brother Tim and Gold Coast guitarist Mick Kempshall to form trio ‘Out Of Order’ and then later as a duo with his brother, ‘The Rourke Brothers’. Most recently recording and working with Tweed Heads based 6 piece outfit ‘The Hi Hats’. He is a generous and dedicated man who also keeps a family / life balance. Good score Geordie Leach band and lucky audience 🙂
Drums – Terry Gascoigne
If they needed a drummer it was Terry they called. By ‘they’ I now name drop – Blackfeather, Jeff St John, Richard Clapton, Renee Geyer, Phil Emmanuel, Bullamakanka, and supported international artists Leo Sayer, Eric Clapton, America & The Rolling Stones on tour.. Need I say more?
Consistent, lovable and very, very good at what he does. We win Geordie Leach Band!
Backing Vocals – Beth Hamilton
Beth Hamilton has an excellent singing voice and has toured Australia in numerous show bands including “Sunset Boulevard” and “The Covers Showband”. Beth has worked with Brian Cadd, John Rowles, Phil Emmanuel, Issy Dye, Al Martino and The Harry Lynn Jazz Trio to name a few. We have seen her place second in the Australian Singing Competition and be awarded 2nd Runner-Up in the Australian Idol competition – “My Mum Rocks”. With her on stage presence and voice that compliments Andrea’s she is a great addition to the band. This woman keeps the band laughing no matter what’s happening,what a benefit.
