The Band

Formed in 2010, Playing for Kicks have taken our eclectic assortment of rock and pop covers as far afield as France and Wales, but mainly all corners of Bradford. Our line-up has changed little over more than 120 gigs and has been settled since early 2016.

Mike

Mike

Guitar/Vocals

Plays the easy bits and leaves the tricky stuff to others, mainly so he can bop about, while imagining he’s in front of the mirror with a hairbrush.

Eddie

Bass

Bass

Somehow combines laid back cool with great dynamic playing. The most recent addition in early 2016 has proved a real asset!

Cath

Cath

Drums/Vocals

Feeds us with her energy, loves stepping forward, but is never happier than when she’s bashing away at the back... ahem...

Jonathan

Jonathan

Keys/Backing

plays pretty much anything, and has had to occasionally, but for now he's stuck with keyboards, harmonies, roadie and chief sound engineer.

Dave

Dave

Guitar

Incredibly easy going, while somehow managing to play all the clever stuff on guitar. Sometimes known as 'happy'.
