Dave Archer drums; He is the most interesting person in the band. He is a cross between Eric Idle and John Cleese and being from Yorkshire England share the same sense of humour as his fellow Yorkshiremen from Monty Python. An extremely talented drummer, he is a former member of the British Invasion group The Bradfords who were huge in England. They had several top ten hits. When they came to North America they were scheduled to tour with the Rolling Stones but were replaced with a U.S. group, Gary Lewis and the Playboys. They managed to get some success on Billboard but eventually the group disbanded. But they did play for a lot of prestigious events such as for the Vice President's birthday party. Today, Dave is the owner of the Yorkshire and is very successful in the Restaurant business with his award winning Fish and Chips.

Ron Elrick, guitar. A man with a thick Scottish accent is the stand up comedian of the group. (mainly because the other comedian, Dave is sitting down)
