Gary bates (dave grohl - Lead vocals, guitar)
Gaz has been a life long fan of the Foo Fighters' music which led him, over four years ago, to become a founding member of the tribute band Foo Fighters GB. From singing along to The Pretender in the car on the way to work to performing as frontman "Dave Grohl" in front of thousands of people at festivals, the road has been long and a steep learning curve but well worth the effort. Gaz has a natural similarity to the vocal style and tones of Dave Grohl and has been touted as the most authentic Dave Grohl sound-a-like in the business. His vocal training has been earned in pubs and clubs belting out classic rock over a decade of hard work.

Danny O'Connell (Chris Shiflett - Guitars)
Danny has a wealth of experience performing in bands playing original music. He has an almost photographic memory when it comes to learning new songs and is musically trained. Dan spends time to strip down each song to ensure the version the crowd hear is as authentic to the original as possible. Always ready to rock a gig he has even been known to step in and help out other Foo Tributes when they are struggling! (Not too often though Dan!)

Russ Weller (Taylor Hawkins - Drums)
Russ is our very own "Taylor Hawkins"and wow does he have some big shoes to fill! Russ attacks the drums with measured aggression and always puts maximum effort into it, losing about 4 litres of bodily fluid during each set. He possibly has the hardest task of providing the heartbeat and engine to every song. No rest for the wicked!
