jamie2006JAMIE
This is Jamie. He puts the ‘Jamie’ in ‘Jamie & the First Class’. He has been in the biz over 15 years so he knows what he’s doing or at least he should by now. Want powerful vocals, awesome guitar skills and questionable dance moves? He’s your guy! Jamie not only fronts the band, but works hard behind the scenes to make sure everyone has everything they need. He also takes charge of sewing on those pesky buttons and polishing the van. Have a question? Email him or follow him on Twitter 

BEV JONES

This is Bev, he is our lead guitarist. He is very brilliant at guitar and great at ‘the crab walk’. Bev is also a wonderful singer with a beautiful voice (some say like Aled Jones). Bev not only sings and plays guitar, but is also an experienced dancer. He produces dance moves leaving audiences’ speechless. Some have compared this hot footed moves to the likes of Riverdance. You have to see it to believe it. When Bev isn’t producing great guitar lines, he teaches guitar. Follow him on Twitter.

hazza

HAZZA

This is our percussionist, dancer and secret weapon. She sorts out the boys & gets them where they need to be. She writes lots of letters and emails.  She also takes most of the photos so we don’t have many of her. Hazza provides the main energy source of the band & never stops dancing or emailing. She sings & plays tambourine, cabasa, cowbell & shakers. Follow her on Twitter.
