Meet the members
Jonny

Jonny Finnis

Jonny fronted his own band aged just 12 and more recently went on to tour USA, Europe and India on bass/vocals with an originals band, culminating in supporting Bon Jovi at the San Siro in Milan playing to 85,000, as well as performing at Glastonbury and many other European music festivals. Jonny brings a wealth of musical talent, humour, ripped jeans, and lowers the average age of the band by quite some way.

Flick

Flick Dukes

Flick has been a Pro vocalist for many years, fronting several bands and working all over the UK. Flick joined the band in 2016 before taking time out in 2018 to become a Mum for the first time! Flick brings an on-stage energy along with a great voice.

She's been a busy girl - performing at the legendary Dingwalls London, supporting Peter Andre, lead singer with Birmingham based Detroit Soul, and vocalist with the Radio 1 House Band too!

Jake Galvin

Jake Galvin

Jake has featured in Bass Guitar Magazine and performed across the UK, Europe and the U.S. with various great bands including Cosmo Jarvis, Antimatador, Freshly Squeezed, and Otis Redding III. Not quite the youngest member of the band but definitely the coolest..

Alex Smith

Alex Smith

Pro drummer and drum teacher Alex was taught by Ralph Salmins at London College of Music (Drumtech) and has since worked as a session man with many UK bands, for BBC Radio, and appeared at Glastonbury and many London West End shows, also featuring on Radio 1's Jo Whiley/Pete Tong show.

Alex joined the band in March 2010 and delights audiences with his outstanding technical ability and feel. Alex's main influence is ex. Sting/Frank Zappa drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, and his nickname is Alan, only because it annoys him. Alex's drumschool website: www.ajsdrumtuition.co.uk

Steve Hood

Steve Hood

Once they have got over the shock of seeing Bill Clinton on guitar, Steve sets audiences alight with fast fret work, and outstanding technical ability. Possessing the hand/eye co-ordination of Lord Nelson, Steve is expertly proficient across all genres of music which suits the band's diverse set.

Steve joined the band in 1999 and his influences are John Schofield and Pat Metheny, but mainly Monica Lewinsky.

Steve Northcott

Steve Northcott

One of Steve's earliest memories is of playing a toy piano at the age of four. He played a real piano at the age of five, and now has learnt to use the black notes occasionally too.

Steve went on to play in school bands and later played with Stiff Richard and Don't Walk, before joining Joey line up after a break of five years. This, despite band members asking for the break to continue much longer.

As well as playing keys, Steve adds a fourth vocal harmony and is known affectionately as Wolfie, Noxy, Professor Pat Pending, Ming the Merciless, and Mr. Burns from The Simpsons

John George

John George

John is the only remaining founder member from when the band formed in 1994. Around that time he was also saxophonist with Soul Station and The Ant Hill Mob. John studied Contemporary World Jazz at University and has never cleaned his saxophone.

He also manages the band and can often be found answering to 'what time are we on? Is it a sit down meal? Where's the toilet? There's a spider in my bath' etc. If he has any time left John can be seen performing elsewhere with modern jazz quintet, Blue Trane.

Chris Spreadbury

Chris Spreadbury

Introducing Chris Spreadbury on the giant paperclip!

Despite his tender years Chris has been a busy boy and is one of several in the band that actually has a qualification in music!

Chris is a music teacher and brass band conducter and has performed at Glastonbury Festival as well as with several previous bands, including The Diversion, The Normals and the Badcore Horns

Robbie Rogers

Robbie Rogers

Rob started his musical career in his local brass band and by the age of 15 was playing in 7 piece band Soul Outfits before later joining The Rhythm Machine, then on to Joey The Lips in 2003. His passion and commitment for soul music led him to hitchhike from Kingsbridge to Plymouth and Paignton just to get to gigs. He has now realised that using a car is quicker.

Rob provides the high end punch in the horn section and his influences are Derek Watkins, Arturo Sandoval but mainly pies. His similarity to Dale Winton & Stan Laurel will go unmentioned.
