Alan wormald (Lead guitar, Vocals)

Alan Wormald, guitarist,
Age as old as my feet but a bit older than my teeth originally was born in Leeds but now live near Nottingham. Been playing guitar since a very young age, as a kid I used to sit and work out the guitar parts for all The Beatles songs that I could get my hands on by listening on radio or LP’s, which ultimately set me up to being a accomplished guitarist(No tabs in them days?). Over the years worked with people such as Freddy Starr, Cannon & Ball and Shakatak in the studio and also with live performances. Still touring to this day with Shakatak and been a member of Shakatak now since 1995 and still going strong mainly playing gigs in foreign countries such as Japan and Russia and others which is great way to see the world and getting paid at the same time(nice). Musical influences range from The Beatles, Cream, Alan Holdsworth, Jimmi Hendrix and anything that just sounds cool. Gear I use is Parker Fly Classic and Levinson Blade R3 fitted with RolandGR20 and run it through Marshall TSL122 +2X12 Cab, Boss ME50. We cover many different genres of music on the gigs such as; Blues, Prog Rock, Ballads and lots of guitar and bass solos going on, and just mainly have a good time so come down and check us out sometime in the upcoming shows you won’t be disappointed, and if so you get your money back, but only in the gigs its free entry.
