We were deeply saddened by the loss of our much-loved and respected bandmate, Mick McGarry, in March 2023.

Mick will always be remembered as a larger-than-life character. With his huge singing talent, musicianship and enormous repertoire of songs, he was a consummate performer and highly respected member of the band.

His sphere of influence was huge and stretched from not only the local music scene, but to the whole of the UK, Ireland and literally around the world.

Mick was a generous man in his support of numerous charities and worthwhile causes, and he would often freely give of his time and the benefit of his experience. He also showed immense support for new and aspiring performers especially in and around the local music scene in Hull.

We will miss Mick greatly and we offer our love and support to his devoted wife Mary, and to all of his family and friends.

We will be continuing as a five-piece – as to carry on singing is the most fitting way to honour Mick’s memory.

Rest in peace, our good friend and bandmate.
