Tobacco Road are a Rock & Blues Band based in Wrexham, North Wales. The group play a wide variety of functions from out and out Rock venues, outdoor festivals and nightclubs to weddings, social clubs and pubs. The band has been together since 2000 and is now blessed with having some of the most experienced and talented musicians in the North West.
Lisa "She who singeth" has got such a range in vocal ability it has to be heard to be understood! Hailing from a life long career in the singing world has already enjoyed much success in bands and solo/duet projects. Lisa also plays Piano / Keyboards AND saxophone on some songs but for some reason tended to struggle when we asked her to sing and play sax at the same time...??? ;) Like Andy (Guitar), Lisa was born into a history of music with her Mother being the locally famed Shereen Evans who like Noochy, was also a member of the Dooley Band for many years.
Noochy - "The Bassman" has been playing in some of the most successful bands out of Wales since the late 50's (The Dominators, The Dek Dooley Band, Daybreak) appearing with the Beatles on three separate occasions and supporting Status Quo in Wembley in 1974.
Noochy plays a Rickenbacker 4003 bass in traditional Fireglo through an Ashdown stack combination of a 600 Head and a 6x10 bass cabinet.
Andy - "Guitar & Backing Vocals" is among the top guitarists in the area with a history of 24 years on the instrument and coming in the top-ten of a pole of guitarists in The Wirral & Merseyside.
Andy has a wide variety of guitars Including Les Paul's, Stratocasters, Telecasters, 335's and acoustics but currently favours his Gibson Les Paul Goldtop Custom and is currently using a Marshall JVM 410H 'Joe Satriani Special Edition' 100 watt full valve head through a 4x12 vintage Marshall 'Greenback' cab and 2x12 greenback extension cab.
Dave - "Drums" Has been a former professional drummer before deciding to take a lesser paced route and just play for the enjoyment of playing. Dave plays an arctic white vintage 70's Sonor kit with an impressive array of cymbals delivering what every top rock band needs, a solid rhythm with much variety played when needed
Tobacco Road are a band that must be seen live to appreciate the perfectly pitched top quality vocal being backed by the raw drive of guitars, pounding bass and solid percussion that should be heard from live music!
