Encore 1024 575 Darin Day Music
    Encore are one of the most professional and popular bands in the UK.

    Ian Leaver: (aka The Gaffer) Drummer age 33
    One of the band’s founding members, I’ve played in many bands across the Midlands with the latest one being Death Night which was an originals band. I have a great personality and winning smile! My favourite song to play is Dakota.

    Paul Gerrard: Piano/Synths/Rhythm Guitar & Vocals.
    Played with CHINATOWN in the 1990 ‘Battle-of-the-Bands’ finals, before forming TWISTER which gigged the Midlands & North pub/club circuit extensively for over 15 years. Had enough at the age of 40 but tempted out of retirement by these 4 very talented, fun-loving scoundrels!

    Nick Peck: Lead/Rythm Guitar, Mandolin, backing vocals. I have played in many bands over the years, a single with a band called “VIDEO” supported the Ian Gillan Band, played on The M.V. Norland NortSea Ferries, also played In a UB40 Tribute Band “Rats In The Kitchen” Growing old disgracefully!

    Steve Jowle:

    He was a boy soprano in his Sunday school and was often picked to sing solo in their annual anniversary concert where he would be awarded with the CDM for musical excellence.

    Fast forward to 1978 where he began his dj career at the world famous BHYC disco.

    Although successful as a disco dj his true heart lay in live performing, he joined the school choir singing solo’s. His performance singing ‘ I am the donkey shaggy and brown’ is remarkably notable.

    In later years he could be found singing in various ‘ free and easy’ in local pubs and clubs. I was then asked to join local beat combo ‘ Jacobs ladder’ after providing them with lead vocals for 2 years they split due to musical differences. Rumours that the taxman caught up with them are scurrilous and indeed libelous.

    After 20 years of musical hiatus he has now picked up the mantle of lead vocals with top Midlands band THE ENCORE.

    Peace and love

    Band Intro

    Martin Ward: Bass
    I first learned to play guitar at around 9 or 10 years old, and later played a couple of times with a band during my teenage years… 35 years later, I decided to rekindle my old hobby and bought myself a bass! Over the last few years I’ve enjoyed playing gigs and open mic nights – previously alongside Gavin, the lead vocalist of Straight Talk. Really looking forward to gigging with this great group of guys.
