Jeff Brown formed the band in 2005. The premise of the group was to construct a band of Original Glam Rock superstars and long-serving members from well known Glam Rock bands and deliver a show of Seventies classics with all the gusto and dedication that was present when the songs were originally released.
Aptly named, The Original Jukebox Heroes are a live action, select-a-disc spectacular that will catapult you back to the days of Glitter, Glam and Platform boots! The show is packed with an energetic cavalcade of toe-tapping Glam Rock classics and is a spectacular visual delight that leaves the audience screaming for more!
Jeff, Sweet’s Singer and bass guitarist for 16 years is joined on stage by brothers in arms, Phil Hendriks, guitarist from Les McKeown's Bay city rollers, Steve Whalley who bravely filled Noddy Holder's shoes in Slade when he left the band, Pete Phipps, The original, drumming Powerhouse from The Glitter Band, Philip Wright who is a founding member of Paper Lace and plays drums and sings lead vocals and last but by no means least, on keyboards is Dave Major who has played with T-Rex since Mickey Finn re-formed the band as a tribute to Marc Bolan.
The Original Jukebox Heroes have been very successful in Russia and Europe and regularly appear at outdoor festivals in Belgium and Germany to a packed capacity and are always in demand! More recently, the band decided to give the UK a taste of what they've got and the last two years has seen them secure a string of theatre dates up and down the country and a slot wowing hardcore Glam Rock holidaymakers at a Seventies Gold Weekender event.
The Original Jukebox Heroes set is comprised of songs from each respective band member’s careers and is performed with complete dedication and a desire to present the songs as authentically as possible. 100% live everytime!
Steve decided the time had come for him to retire from the band. He plays in a very popular and successful and Bluess project with his son Tat so be sure to keep an eye open for a show near you and check him out.
We have now enlisted the guitar and vocal skills of Mud II frontman, Syd Twynham and he brings with hm, Phil Wilson to provide the thuds! With the new additions of some toe-tapping, hip-swinging Mud numbers, the set has had a antastic revamp too! The shows henceforth will be Dyna-Mite! We look forward to seeing you all soon!
