That's Chris our technician. He looks after Roscoe's basses and also our harps and guitar.
Clive Raphael's drum technician and Mickey, Leonard's guitar technician - Mickey also looks after all of Javier's bandurias and other instruments.

I can't seem to centre this photo better. These guys keep the show rocking from the side of the stage. Russ (at the board on the left) mixes everything that we hear on stage. Without his ears and instincts we could be lost. Dan (at the front) is the technician in charge of all of Dino's instruments (including the electronic sounds that he plays) and he also looks after Neil's Hammond Organ and keyboards. Leif at the back is the technician for Bob's Guitars and amplifiers and that is a huge job as Bob has some fantastic vintage equipment that needs special attention. Brian 'pants' Kirk is only just in the right side of the photo (I'll take another one of him sometime I promise) and Pants rigs the stage so that all of our microphones and monitors are connected each night. He also mans the mix that Javier hears as he plays.
