The band features Manx drummer Phillip Groves. When on the island, Phillip drums with local acts such as Alex Harris, Nigel from the Palace Piano Bar and various others.
Phil left the island a few years ago to go play on cruise ships. He ended up working for the well known Celebrity Cruises and joined the in-house band, The Trends.
The band played on the ships three times a day and would be at sea six months at a time which moulded them in to a slick music machine. The left the cruises 2 years ago. After a brief return back home to the island, Phillip moved to Cardiff to join the rest of the band. They set themselves up as a corporate/party/function band, playing anything from weddings, pub gigs, business events, public events and birthdays. Since this they have gone on to play for Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Principal Hotel Company and Sony. As a side business, Phillip set up Accent Entertainment – a music agency which books musicians on to cruise ships!
Phillip says “”The Isle of Man is where I was initially ‘schooled’, performing in many different bands around the island. A few years later, I was performing on cruise ships that would be my home for 4 years with the band I’m in now. Having travelled the world seeing many destinations, the Isle of Man was always on our list of places to go.. not even kidding! We are finally happy to tick the Manx flag off our to do list!”
We’ll be there and can’t wait to watch their debut gig here on the island. See ya down the front?
