Meet Justin Thomas - Lead Guitar
Having only taken up the guitar at 16, Justin had a lot of catching up to do.... Although that was a long time ago!
From about 1975 - 2002, Justin played in various pub and function bands in South Africa, culminating in the semi-pro 70's rock band Illusion, who played the pub and club circuits and also produced a Deep Purple tribute show just before Justin left for the UK.
In the UK, Justin then played for a couple of pub bands, including a semi-pro band specialising in the music of Cream and Jimi Hendrix, alongside Crossfire drummer John Allen.
Justin enjoys all rock styles, as well as blues and fusion - any exciting guitar playing! He cites as his major influences: Ritchie Blackmore, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Gary Moore, Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even Hank Marvin - and especially Joe Satriani. Quite an eclectic mix!
Come and enjoy some serious Classic Rock!
