THE BAND

Bruce Foxton (Bass)

Bruce is a part of the English Rock and Roll establishment. A musician (born 1/9/1955 Woking,Surrey) who is most commonly recognised as the bass player in legendary bands The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers. In The Jam, he and drummer Rick Buckler were the driving force, power and rhythm section behind singer, guitarist, and songwriter Paul Weller.

Bruces versatility is evident, taking lead vocals on “David Watts” (The Kinks) and “News Of The World”, which was one from his catalogue of own compositions. Foxtons most notable work being “Smithers-Jones”, done with bass/guitar/drums for the B-side of “When You’re Young” and later reworked with strings for the Setting Sons LP.

After The Jam split in ’82, Foxton pursued a solo career. He had a hit with the single “Freak” and collaborated with other musicians, until he got the call from Stiff Little Fingers’ Jake Burns,staying with with SLF for fifteen years, recording four albums, namely, Flags and Emblems, Get a Life, Tinderbox, and Guitar and Drum.

In 1994, Rick and Bruce collaborated on Our Story, a biography of their eventful and cherished years in The Jam. Bruce toured with Bruce Watson, Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) and Simon Townshend (The Who) in 2006 as The Casbah Club supporting The Who in the U.K and Europe promoting their new album “Venustraphobia.” Bruce is now touring again with Mark Brzezicki.

Mark Brzezicki (Drums)

Mark (born Mark Michael Brzezicki, 21 June 1957, Slough, Berkshire, England) is a rock drummer, who is primarily known for his work with Big Country, and is a former member of the groups The Cult, Ultravox, and Procol Harum.

He has also played with Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Midge Ure, Fish, The Pretenders and many others. He uses both the traditional and matched grips.

With Tony Butler (of Big Country) he was known as Rhythm for Hire. Brzezicki left Big Country in July 1989, but rejoined in 1993. Big Country started gigging again in 2007, as part of their 25th anniversary tour.

In 2004, Brzezicki helped found a new band, Casbah Club, with Bruce Foxton and Simon Townshend. Smash Hits magazine had a running gag in the 1980s wherein they referred to him as “Mark Unpronounceablename of Big Country”. On Pete Townshend’s All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes and White City: A Novel albums there are joking references to the spelling of his last name.

Russel Hastings (Lead Vocals)

Russell is a musician/vocalist in his own right Russell has shocked audiences worldwide with his authentic and passionate interpretation in performance (vocals and guitar) of The Jam’s back catalogue.
Russell grew up on The Jam and this is evident in his attention to every detail, from the Rickenbacker to the Marshall 4×4 everything as it was and should be. Energy, pride, execution and dynamic delivery.
