Jon Made his drumming debut in 1963 playing Wipeout in his brother's band The Silhouettes. He learnt his drum rudiments and discipline in a marching band, and in the late sixties played at venues including the Royal Albert Hall and the Colston Hall in Bristol, amongst many visits to France.
In 1966 Hughie Green presented Opportunity Knocks in a summer season at the Pavilion Theatre, Weymouth. Jon entered the competition playing in a duo called David and Jonathan. They won it two weeks running and their reward was to appear twice nightly on the show working with people like Monica Rose, Tony Holland (remember the Muscle Man?) and Bobby Bennett (Junior Showtime). He had a fantastic time and even got to sail on Hughie's boat.
In the late sixties Jon appeared a couple of times on Westward Television. On one occasion he appeared in a period drama playing a regimental drummer - he recalls having to go to the makeup room to have his hands made up (because that's all that was seen). That's showbusiness!
He has played in many venues, mainly in the South West, with several bands including Outward Bound, Reflections, Inspirations and Ex-Directory. He joined Old Dogz... New Trix in March 2006.
Roy discovered his voice whilst at school and took the lead roles in a number of school productions. His love for 50's and 60's music led him to follow his passion and he joined his first band in 1979. In the early 90's he teamed up with Rob Ellis to form the duo ‘Revival’. He successfully sang and played keyboards, frequenting the South West circuit for over seven years. Then in 2004, after short break, he joined 'The Graduates,’ a five piece function band playing weddings, theatres and clubs. The function band ‘Nevertheless’ followed.
His favourite singer/songwriter is Roy Orbison, he was also inspired by the music of Johnny Cash and is a big fan of Country Rock.
