Kevin Aylward B.Sc - Lead Guitar
Kevin has been playing guitar on and off since the age of eleven, which was around 40 years ago. Oh dear... that allows one to work out Kevin's age...52.
Kevin is sort of a competent midi sequencer programmer and records many of his original compositions. Some examples of Kevin's work are here. Although Kevin is reasonably knowledgeable on music theory, the practicalities of, playing piano with two hands was a significant motivation to restrict that particular knowledge to the virtual world.
Kevin's favorite Band/Artist is Steely Dan. Steely Dan, essentially consisting of Donald Fagan and Walter Becker along with 100+ other session players. Other music tastes include fusion and progressive rock such as Stanley Clarke, Pat Matheny, Al Di Meola, Santana, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Camel. On the lighter side, Blondie, Slade, Sweet, Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Rod Stewart, Niles Lofgren, Bob Marley, ABBA, Spandau Ballet, David Bowie, Roxy Music, are all much appreciated.
Kevin Aylward B.Sc., is an analogue design engineer, and has been so since graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Communications and Electronic Engineering from Napier University, Edinburgh in 19... well some time ago anyway. This was actually at a time when it was a real privilege to get to go university for a degree. Nowadays, they let anyone go... Kevin has also undertaken significant M.Sc. Physics post graduate study. Software has also formed a significant component of his professional background.
Kevin has been employed as an Electronics Engineer in many companies. For example, Texas Instruments, Studiomaster, Philips Medical Systems, and The Superconducting SuperCollider etc.
Kevin is currently employed as Principle Analogue I.C. Design Engineer at a company in Harlow, Essex. Unlike his guitar playing, at his profession, he is demonstrable the best in the country.
Tim - Drums
Carl Aylward - Keyboards/Bass
Carl has been playing keyboards extensively since the age of eleven. He is now er... well...somewhat...older...at 51. He is the twin brother of Kevin, but the ugly one of the pair.
Carl obtained an O' level in music and can therefore sight read with reasonable dexterity.
Carl has played in many, many bands over the last 30 years. Examples being, David Bowie tribute band, general MOR function bands, rock bands, classic rock bands and various duos/trios. Currently he plays keyboard and simultaneous bass parts for Rosie Rox.
