Who are they in 2014

RAY PHILLIPS

Vocalist

Founder member of 
The Nashville Teens

 

One of the Worlds finest R&B singers, Ray has stayed loyal to the Nashville Teens through thick and thin since 1962, turning down offers to move to other groups, including an offer from Jack Bruce to be lead singer with Cream.    As well as keeping up his dynamic performances with the Nashville Teens, Ray also holds down a day job with the World Class Maclaren Motor Racing Team.

COLIN PATTENDEN

Bass Guitar and Vocals

 

Colin cut his teeth as a session guitarist for the likes of Englebert Humperdink and Leapy Lee in the sixties, but made his biggest mark as a founder member of Manfred Mann's Earth Band in the early seventies. He has also played with Mungo Jerry, The King Earl Boogie Band and The Jackie Lynton Band.

ADRIAN (“SPUD”) METCALFE

Drums  

 

Despite his youthful looks, Adrian has drummed with the Teens for almost 40 years, and - apart from Ray - is the longest serving band member in the Groups history.  He has also played with The Jackie Lynton Band and is a strong, rock steady, rock'n'roll drummer. The best!
