Mike, Guitars

Mike is a founder member of Cuttin' Edge, founding the band with Fenny in 2007.

An avid collector of amps, you'll probably never see him with the same one twice.

He claims not to collect guitars, but seems to have one to match each amp!

Although he doesn't look old enough, Mike first started playing in bands in 1973, right in the middle of the Glam Rock years with music by Bowie, Bolan, Slade, Sweet etc.

Mike says: "We hope that we will continue into the future, entertaining everyone that comes to see us, playing great rock/punk covers, in our own style."

After a long lay off, Mike went to see Green Day at Milton Keynes in 2005, during the band's American Idiot tour. Not only was it great music but they managed to entertain 70,000 people each night, and the seed was planted in Mike's mind about starting a band to play songs other covers band do not. Mike's son suggested Fenny as a potential singer and the partnership was born.

Fenny, Vocals

Fenny is another founder member of Cuttin' Edge. Single-handedly reduces both the average age of the band and increases the average amount of hairstyles available to the band.

Singing with Cuttin' Edge since the very start, Fenny's voice is the signature sound of the band. His feet also operate the lights and he doubles up as the sound engineer, plus bought a pick up so he can transport the PA to and from gigs. Top guy!

Chris, Drums

Anchoring the rhythm section, the "engine room" of the band, Chris joined Cuttin' Edge in late 2014. A veteran of hundreds of gigs, he's even started using microphones for between-song quips.

Chris comes from "darn sarth" and is a little worried about getting nosebleeds when he ventures as far north as Norfolk, but he's putting a brave face on it!

Almost no photos exist of Chris, as he's always hiding in the shadows at the back of the band.

If you do have a good photo, please send it to us so we can add it to the website.

Marc, Bass

Marc started playing music in 2009 and joined his first band - Cuttin' Edge - later that same year.

In 2012, he co-founded a rock covers band, The Dirty Rogues, who played gigs locally and performed at The Big Gig in Halesworth in 2014.

Marc's playing style is influenced by bass players such as Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, Sixx:A.M.), Dee Dee Ramone (Ramones), Simon Gallup (The Cure), Ben Shepherd (Soundgarden) and Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers).
