The Guns of Navarone are a 10 Piece Ska Band who sometimes drift into a little bit of Reggae and a little bit of Northern Soul. Their shows are all about the 'feel good' factor of good music, dancing and having fun. They love doing what they do and they love the response they get from a happy crowd.
The Guns of Navarone are regulars at The Glastonbury Festival, Endorse It In Dorset, ToneFest and The Wimborne Folk Festival, as well as many famous small venues along the south coast.
Classic Ska in the original Trojan style with Big Brass Sounds and Skanking Rhythms. Guaranteed to make you Dance and Smile!
Chris "Fortissimo" Finch - (Baritone Sax)
Deceptively straight looking, one blast from his massive horn will turn your duodenum to jelly.
Loud And Lively Lamma - (Tenor Sax)
Founder of the band and has been known to produce a ten flapper. You can't help but notice his warm salty sax serum sliding into your cochlea.
Dynamic Dave - (Lead Vocal)
Latest (And Youngest) Member Of The Band. His rich, powerful voice and cheeky, cherubic looks deliver dittys you just have to dance to.
Luscious Laura - (Alto Sax)
The only female member of the band, her lyrical melodies will enhance and tantalize you. She's hot, so you'd better get up and dance.
'Avin It Andy - (Trumpet)
Looking sharp a razor, his trumpet tribulations will cut straight through to the two tone bone in all of you. Shiny head and shiny boots, you'd better listen when he toots.
Metronomic (Aussie) Mike - (Bass)
Solid as a rock and the backbone of the band. His beastly, brain-battering basslines are often known to trigger an irresistable primeval urge to dance.
Arpeggiated Adam - (Keyboards)
Mutated in an industrial piano factory accident, his teeth have been replaced by ivory and ebony. Listen out for episodes of his pedal-depressed pan-chromatic resonance,
Tomtom Tim - (Drums)
Slick and tight, the generator behind the band, he delivers a devastating dynamic into every tune in the set. If you don't dance now, you just 'aint got rhythm.
Synergic Steve - (Lead Guitar)
The granddaddy of the band, effortlessly shatters hands with his polite handshake. Effortlessly gilding the set with his blistering solos he exudes a harmonic glue that will keep you stuck to the dancefloor.
Two Tone Tony - (Rhythm Guitar)
Tony lives and breathes ska. Touting a tonal tapestry to taunt and texturise, his offbeat aural offerings tie up this ten-piece nicely.
