DARREN | lead vocals
Always loving music, in the early days it was the Oils & INXS for Darren. Back then Springsteen was a huge influence: his passion & great ability to create a story in song the Boss was the one. Started hosting karaoke shows at 40, was a natural at getting the crowd going & creating a party vibe. They were great times, but fronting up a band was the goal.
Joined Touchwood Rock at the end of 2012.
Playing live gigs weekly & singing to a crowd is what it's about.
ANDRE | guitars & vocals
Providing all the riffs & energetically reproducing many famous licks through his Marshall amp & les Paul guitar. His unique style, fun attitude but always a serious approach to improving & building his repertoire.
Andre is an integral & driving force behind Touchwood Rock's success.
Years of experience as a foundation member allows this guy to lead from the front from start to finish.
RIGGSY | BASS & vocals
Playing bass for over 12 years and has been a Chili Peppers fan for even longer. His playing has been heavily influenced by them and other top notch artists such as Green Day, Offspring, Sublime, Bob Marley, Metallica, Guns 'n' Roses, and many more.
Riggsy has been known to be an animated, lively and energetic rocker on stage.
Music is part of his daily life. If there is no music playing around him, he has a tune in his head. There is a saying he lives by, "A world without music is chaos."
ANDREW | DRUMS
Andrew has spent most of his life immersed in all genres of music with a leaning towards hard hitting, foot stomping beats! He has performed in various originals & covers bands in front of audiences up to 25,000.
His greatest musical influences are Faith No More, U2, Icehouse and Foo Fighters and serve as the basis for his self-taught drumming style.
Touchwood Rock is the perfect band for Andrew to showcase his ability and impact audiences in the years ahead.
