DIVING FOR PEARLS are an explosive and inventive 6 piece band of experienced musicians, who meld styles, genres, and influences into their own sonically rich and full sound. True to their name, the band’s constant search for quality material leads to a unique, constantly evolving, and surprising set, that gives a distinctly different offering to venues and audiences.
The band was formed by Martin (Big M) Brady (ex European Managing Director of the guitar manufacturing giant FENDER) on lead guitar and Russell (Boy) Jupp on Bass guitar- half of the highly respected classic rock band Mistreated.
Hammond organ and other keyboards, in the guise of the talented Peter Jones, has been added to augment Martin’s powerful guitar sound to produce a really wide canvas of exciting music. The rhythm section is completed by the wonderful Ian Roy Simpson on drums. Rob Darch and Kevin Courage form the razor sharp brass section.
DIVING FOR PEARLS is an amazing and colourful blend of powerful sounds that carry audiences along on a rolling tide of deliciously reinvented classics, fabulous re-discoveries, and new original material.
