BAND MEMBERS

The Harley 'n' Dutch Band consists of six highly competent and experienced musicians, each with many years of experience playing in a variety of bands. Here is a short profile of each of our fine musicians.

STEPHANIE

STEPHANIE

Lead Singer

Stephanie is our lead vocalist and also plays a mean Tambourine. She started her singing career when she was in High School, performing in many of the musicals that they put on. She also enjoyed participating in Karaoke evenings.

Her first real toe in the water with "Live Entertainment" was recording a song for the first dance at her wedding as a surprise for her husband.

She received some really good feedback from that which inspired her to go on and have professional voice coaching and start a career singing as a solo artist in pubs and clubs.

Stephanie brings a very powerful voice to the band and for someone so new to the world of gigging is already showing that she has what it takes to be a real asset to the band.

Her musical inspiration comes from artist such as Etta James, Tammy Wynette, Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf, Prince, so a real mixed bag of musical genre.

KEVIN

KEVIN

Lead Guitar - Vocals - Harmonies

Kev is one of our guitar players, also singing some lead vocals and adding to the close harmonies that the group produce.

Another musician with a wealth of experience having been on the circuit since he was 13…..so 46 years!! We’ll let you do the math!!!

Oakland West, TNT, Midnight Express, Banned In Blue and Coversdotcom are previous bands he’s worked in alongside his brother Bren, but he has also worked in Ireland with Black Pepper, and their alter ego The Mice Bullies with whom he recorded and produced an album of the same name.

He’s also our resident geek and keeps the band up to speed with the latest technology to improve what we do.

Kevin loves guitars generally but because of their versatility plays Line 6 Variax guitars and amplifiers for live work.

Kev also sets up the digital P.A. system for live gigs when there is no sound engineer available.

ALEX

ALEX

2nd Lead / Rhythm Guitar

He started playing guitar when he was 6 years old. He progressed to the violin where he was classicaly trained. He also learned to play the piano as well as learning to play drums. Quite a talented lad on the quiet.

At 13 he decided that the guitar was going to be his forte and concentrated on learning properly.

He joined a band to gain some gigging experience but then let it take a back seat when his son was born.

Not being able to give up music completely, he carried on playing at home and playing at open mike nights.

Alex joined The Harley 'n' Dutch Band at the back end of 2016 when the band reformed with their new name and has been an amazing asset, complementing the other musicians with his ability to fill out the sound with good quality chord work and the occasional solo and twiddly bits.​

PHIL

PHIL

Bass Guitar

Phil is our Bass player and along with Bren - (drums) - forms the engine room of the Band.

He started playing bass guitar back in the 1970's gaining experience playing with various bands along the way.

In 2002 he formed a band which has subsequently gone through many changes and has resulted in the line up as it is today.

Phil keeps the band amused with his witty humour but at the end of the day he is a solid bass player which reflects in the musical presentation that the band now produce.

STU

STU

Synthesisers

Newcomer, Stu joined The Harley ’n’ Dutch Band in late 2019. His musical versatility adds great range to the band creating faithful renditions of songs in our repertoire.

Stu learned piano from a young age passing all his classical music grades by the age of 17. He has played in various bands over the years with a range of styles including rock, pop, funk and folk. In the past Stu was given the nick name ‘musical parrot’ due to his ability to play most songs from memory.

Stu’s rig currently consists of a Korg Kronos 2, 73 key workstation and a Roland V-Synth which he uses in tandem to maximum effect to produce rich and accurate layered sounds for almost any musical style or genre.

Musical influences and heroes are: Jeff Lynne - ELO, Rick Wakeman - Yes, Roger Hodgson - Supertramp, Beethoven.

BREN

BREN

Drums - Vocals - Harmonies

Our noise maker in chief is Brendan, or Bren’ to his friends. He’s been drumming since he was 9 and made his first record when he was 10, and his most recent recording was in Sun Studios, alongside brother Kev.

He’s also our resident smarty pants as he also sings lead and backing vocals, plays keyboard, guitar and bass as well!

With a wealth of experience gathered whilst playing with, amongst others, Oakland West, T-N-T, Midnight Express, Banned In Blue and Coversdotcom, he’s like a living breathing metronome!! Whilst he prefers his 70s Premier Custom kit, in order to be able to turn the volume down as well as up, he now uses Yamaha electronic drums
