Colin has spent much of his life as a professional musician. Working as a Session Guitarist in London's Tin Pan Alley, playing in combos and big bands, teaching guitar and music theory. Colin, as Shelley says, 'was dragged to the dark side', and now plays lead ukulele, chromatic harmonica and sings with Savoir Plunk. Here are a couple of old photos of Colin:

Dave is our intrepid bass player. You've most probably seen Dave playing bass in Bluegrass Bands, but he's scaled down to playing a ukulele Ubass (the size of a pussycat, the sound of a lion). Dave lends his vocal talent to the group and 'secretly' plays great lead ukulele as well.
Jodie is our: glockenspieling, melodican, singing, ukulele playing gal. With a background in everything from saxophone to piano.

Shelley's been an entertainer since she was a child. Playing ukulele, violin, piano and percussion, she also gives the band her distinctive vocal talent. Give her a microphone and she'll wow you.
