Biography

the Recycled String Band

The group features instruments made from recycled and reused materials. Fashioned from all sorts of items including old hub caps, cigar boxes, tea tins and other trash found at garage sales, opportunity shops, markets, junk yards etc.
All effort has gone into spending as little money as possible on the materials to build
the instruments but much care and attention has been spent in the shed to make them playable, look interesting, and have a usable sound.

The band believe that one mans junk is another’s ukulele or resophonic guitar, bass guitar or drum kit or????
They are equally at home in the blues realm or junkyard roots and old time country with a great mix of songs that include blues & roots standards along with songs there’ve made up themselves.

The band is lead by Luke R Davies adapt on several of his home made instruments he also sings and plays a mean blues harmonica. The other members of the band are recruited from all walks of life and have sworn to the junkyard, recycled and reuse cause. They include multi junkyard instrumentalist Chris Mangan, Jack Jensen, Bruce Gregory and Bryan Rolie Dwyer on his recycled percussion extravaganza.
They aim to have fun, be environmentally friendly, entertaining and guaranteed to make you smile.
