Bristol has always been a ‘hotbed’ for producing top quality Bands. As Craig & Julian were founder members of ‘The ToppKatz’ and John was the founder member of ‘The Firebirds’, ‘The Tonemasters’ are continuing to build on this excellent reputation.
The solid Rhythm section of Craig & Julian provide the perfect back beat for John who plays his beloved Eddie Cochran style Gretsch guitar. The lead Vocals are shared between Julian and John, with all three members supplying backing vocals.
As well as a strong selection of original material, they also cover some great tracks from the likes of Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Brian Setzer (Stray Cats) etc, to more ‘obscure’ acts such as Joe Bonamassa, Jack Earls and Johnny Burnette. ‘The Tonemasters’ leave no stone unturned in bringing you the very best in Live Rockabilly, Rock n Roll and Rockin’ Blues.
To compliment their visual and exciting stage show, ‘The Tonemasters’ only use the very best on stage equipment such as Gretsch, Ashdown, Fender, Roland, Allen & Heath, LA Audio, Studiomaster, Tama and Bose to ensure a professional sound. They especially refrain from using click tracks and backing tracks as this is felt to limit the ability of the band to drop the odd note or beat which adds the spontaneity and excitement of the show :-)
The Tonemasters will travel to any destination providing there is plenty of cash, John Smith’s extra smooth on tap and horlicks with chocolate hob nobs for after the show!!
You will probably have noticed that the Band also has a sense of humour J
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
