Mojo

Guitar

close


Dave "Mojo" Mullen – Guitarist and riff-meister extraordinaire. Provides the chordal grind. Will join Fraser in occasional mumblings of backing vocals. When not playing guitar he sneaks off into a corner and strums his beloved ukelele. Refuses point blank to play bagpipes.

Amanda

Keyboards

Amanda Stephenson – Keyboard player, vocalist, bagpiper. Amanda also plays bagpipes with her local pipe band in Townsville.

Fraser

Fraser

Bagpipes, bouzouki

close


Fraser Martin – The band's founder, musical director and passionate energy source. Usually plays bagpipes, guitar, bass, bouzouki and anything else that other band members leave lying around. Known for his laid back approach and gentle forms of encouragement.

Alison

Alison

Violin

close


Alison Skardon – Violinist, vocalist, mandolinist, bagpipist and musical masochist. Watch out for that bow, it's lethal. When not actually being used for playing violin, Alison's bow goes to work as a conductor's baton and band cattle prod. And no, Alison is not bossy. Repeat, not bossy.

David

David

Bagpipes, guitar

close


David Greenhalgh takes his bagpiping very seriously indeed! And is probably the only one in the band that looks even remotely like a proper piper. When not playing bagpipes he's playing his flamenco guitar or screaming gently into a nearby microphone.

Red

Red

Drums

close


Michael "Red" Calligaro is the band's celtic drum percussionist. His drums have no volume control. He is wanted in several states throughout Australia for numerous alleged violations of local authority noise pollution laws. His response to this is unprintable.
