GET TO KNOW THE MEMBERS OF THE BAND:
This Dutch Diva has experience in theatre, jazz, opera and blues, Yoka was the face of successful British Indie Blues Band "Little Devils" (2010-2016). Yoka is a charismatic performer with a big voice that easily adapts to different genres. A true story teller, she is known to take her audience on a journey full of laughter and the occasional tear. Yoka also adds occasional flute and sax to the overall sound and has been nominated in 2014, 15 & 16 for instrumentalist of the year in the British Blues Awards.
Yoka's special skill is that she can play two recorders at the same time with her nose, which is a real and useful skill; she has seen a clown in Cirque du Soleil at the Albert Hall do it too..Yoka cries easily and can make herself cry just thinking about the fact she cries so easily.
Big Ray cut his musical teeth on the Belgian and Dutch Blues scenes, playing with a plethora of musicians both on bass as well as guitar.
Upon his return to London, he joined Little Devils on guitar and went on to co-write their critically acclaimed album, The Storm Inside.
Ray's favourite band is Pink Floyd. David Gilmour never wastes a note, every single one counts, he is the reason Ray started playing the guitar. If Big Ray could have a superpower he would like to be invisible for 'obvious reasons'.
For the geeks: Big Ray plays his own hand crafted guitar with mahogany back and neck. Lacewood top and fingerboard. Bog Oak headstock veneer, Sperzel locking tuners, Tonerider Hot 90 pickups, CTS pots and Switchcraft selector with a Wilkinson trem. With as back- up guitars: Fender Strats (with Fender Custom Shop pickups in one and a set of John Benson's hand-wound-in-NY in the other) and a custom made, hard pine Telecaster (60s Tiesco Gold Foil in the neck, Seymour Duncan in the bridge) through a Fender Hotrod DeVille 2x12. His tone is only lightly coloured via a handful of modulation pedals. When unplugging, he'll either use his Guild or his Faith acoustic.

Is a full time self-taught 'leftie' with 25 years of gigging and recording experience playing up and down the UK and across Europe. Spencer is no longer allowed to come near any mic, his favourite joke: "Doctor, it really hurst when I lift my arm up?" Doc: "Don't do it then!" When asked what he'll do when he grows up he'll puts his fingers in his ears. In his spare time Spencer would like to be in a band.
For the geeks: Spencer plays Gretsch and Pearl drums with Sabian And Zildjian Cymbals.
