The Stray Horns

Anthony Stevens- The gentle sousaphone wielding giant. He also plays with the heavy beats brass band when he isn't running marathons, climbing mountains or completing Iron Man triathlon races. Very experienced in all kinds of performance styles. Always knows when to pull out the right tune to suit a particular moment. A natural comedian.

Mike McKay- Plays a multitude of different instruments but loves drumming for everything from musical theatre shows to heavy metal bands. He is well versed in playing to a crowd and loves engaging with an audience always with a smile on his face.

Mike Smith- Great saxophonist, who is musically promiscuous; plays with ABC, Tony Hadley, Elkie Brooks and Echo and the Bunnymen. Teaches at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, but loves nothing more than making people laugh through is unique sense of humour and performance style.

Jamie Brownfield- The suave & sophisticated one. ‘Box-Office’ Brownfield is also a pilot and well-respected jazz musician. Plays trumpet with indie legends Shed Seven and cruising diva Jane Macdonald. He also runs his own band, the Jamie Brownfield Quartet.
