The Bang On The Wall Band
The Bang On The Wall Band is Martin Wildig on melodeon (squeezebox) and Phil Preen on percussion and tin whistle. To complete the line-up we have guitar and bass guitar, usually Neil Cadwallader and Michael Scrivens. Our regular dance caller is Laz Gilbert but we do work with other callers from time to time when Laz is not available.
Occasionally a member of the band may not be available, so we also have a number of others who know the band's material, and who can step in when needed. This also allows us to take bookings well in advance without worrying, and we've never had to cancel a booking once it has been agreed.
When Phil is not available Stuart Mee will deputise on drums. We also have a number of excellent guitar and bass players who can dep. for Michael or Neil if one of them is not available, including: Bob Rushton, Peter Smale and Colin Keefe.
