Meet the band!

Stef - Vocals

Stef is an experienced vocalist; she studied music at Aberdeen College, before travelling round the world! Prior to SCSR, Stef's musical highlights included performing in theatre shows, supporting Supergrass at the Wizard Festival, as well as playing for a ceilidh band and 'The Big Show'.

Mark - Vocals

Our latest addition to the SCSR lineup, male vocalist Mark spent a long time working behind the lights before stepping in front of them! Mark is also the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for Fraserburgh-based band 'The Rosetones'.

Laura - Alto Sax

Laura is the latest addition to the SCSR horn section. She graduated with her BMus at Aberdeen Uni, and now works as a piano and sax tutor. Laura is also a busy mum to two young girls!

Kelly - Trumpet

Music Education graduate Kelly has been with the band for several years now, and leads the horn section in some dazzling choreography. She teaches music full time, working with some very talented students!

Julie - Trombone

Our third music teacher, Julie is the girl with the band diary if you have a booking enquiry. Another exponent of dazzling choreography on death-defying heels! Julie also earned her BMus at Aberdeen Uni, graduating shortly before Kelly and Alan.

Hamish - Keyboards

An Emeritus Professor no less, Hamish is enjoying his retirement playing the music of his youth; in many cases he is the only one who can remember the original releases! When not performing, Hamish's frequent holidays keep the rest of us feeling extra jealous.

Gareth - Electric Guitar

Gareth recently moved up from Glasgow, where he worked as an engineer for Carlton Studios and played guitar for the Carlton Jug Band. When not making music, he enjoys building software, travelling, and trying to speak Spanish.

Alan - Bass Guitar

Alan also studied music at the University of Aberdeen, having started out on double bass aged 10. He now regularly performs for stage shows and classical concerts, alongside running most of our technical equipment; he was also one of the band's founding members.

Andy - Drums

Andy attained teaching diplomas in drumkit and percussion while studying at Aberdeen College, and lays down a solid, funky beat for us all to follow. He also moonlights as a taxi driver, whenever we're not busy gigging! Alongside Alan, he is one of our longest serving players.
