The current line up of the Breed features; Wayne Crisp (Guitar), Dan Graver (Bass) and Kenny White (Drums).
Wayne is the founding member of The Breed. He has played guitar all his life and loves the whole mid 60s pop culture. He has an LP collection that would require a semi-trailer to move (almost!). His energy on stage, and rhythm-lead playing style, enables him to carry off a full sound. As the lead singer, his vocal style is in keeping with the 60s influences, but carries a modern flavour equally as well.
Kenny is originally from the UK where he played drums with prog rock band Clear Blue Sky. He is a drummer's drummer, and has brought a true authenticity to the beat of the Breed. His solid backbeat has lifted their sound to the next level. Since immigrating to Tasmania, in 2006 he has has helped his wife and partner Kim build the Richmond Valley Riding School (which, incidentally, was never purpose built, it just evolved!) to a unique equine experience.
Dan is a multi-talented musician, playing both drums and guitar in addition to bass. He brings that sense of fun and adventure to The Breed. His solid bass lines and strong vocal harmonies fit well with the overall style of the band. In his spare time he collects vintage guitars.
