The Mighty Toodle & The Pips [Pop / Rock, 5 piece]
Toodle and the Pips is a covers band, loosely formed by experienced musicians in 2010 in response to demand for a group with a slightly different set. We have a good reputation for flexibility and good time entertaining. We are based in South West London.Toodle and the Pips are made up of:Gary Ellis - Lead VocalistBlessed with a fine voice, the experienced and much in demand singer is a recent addition to the band having worked with too many other bands to mention. Despite being a Manchester United fan he is much admired by our audience.'Smeggy' - Drums and VocalsA Drummer since he was knee high to a grasshopper (he's still quite short) Smeggy is a fully qualified survivor from the famous 'Cartoon' (Croydon) days. With a list of Band credits as long as your arm and session work in his portfolio he is an extremely experienced drummer who has toured America and Europe.Václav Beneš - Bass GuitarAn import from the Czech Republic, Václav was spotted walking through Morden when a Bass player was desperately needed and turned out to be a gift from God as his almost virtuoso style provides a solid and lyrical platform for the band. A funk player at heart he has played in several well established Czech bands of that ilk with names far too difficult to spell.Hamish Duncan - Guitar and VocalsThe old codger of the band, every pub band needs one, he was dragged screaming from his retirement as a rhythm guitarist. A concert standard classical guitarist when he gets the time.Rory Duncan - Guitar and VocalsAnyone with the slightest interest in guitar is transfixed by the dexterity and accompanying facial expressions of this young man. At age 25 he is the junior member of the band but nevertheless very experienced having played his first paid gig when 12 years old. He is also drummer with heavy metal band 'Early Black' who earned a 4 out of 5 record review in January's 'Kerrang' magazine. Irritatingly talented but we all love him really.The Father / Son relationship also amuses many when they play live together.
