CLARE HORNER


CLARE HORNER - TENOR SAX

 

 

 

 

Clare is the last piece in our jigsaw and truly a breath of fresh air - welcome on board.  Whilst Clare's background is playing the big band stuff she thoroughly loves the classic soul.   Clare plays both the tenor and alto sax, accompanied by her years of playing and strong enthusiasm she helps fill the solo's and keeps the Soul Rebels brass line special.

An true asset (I am sure your would agree) is well worth seeing.

KAY DEE


PHIL HUDSON


 

PHILL HUDSON - TRUMPET

 

 

 

Phill originally from Leeds spent most of his early years playing in Big Bands.  In the eighties he played more in Jazz Funk bands around the University circuits gigging alongside bands such as Amazulu, Bad Manners and Imagination. 

Phill moved to the North East in 2008 he was soon involved again with Big Band Sound until finally stumbling across the Soul Rebels in his local pub.  I think "stumbling" is quite apt Phill - A good lad to have on board.

LES CROSBY


 

LES CROSBY - DRUMS

 

Les is one of the top Drummers in the North East, he has all the right grooves and fills which compliment that soul sound.  With his intelligent rhythms Les has the perfect technique to astound and thrill. No member of any band is as responsible for the energy level as the drummer, Les provides that pace, intensity in full within our music.

Les is a great guy and pleasure to work with and now gives us total consistency with the rhythm section.  Welcome on board Les - Alan
