Home Up Tommo Karin van Driel Neil McBride Jon Coupland Derrick Barnes Richard Underwood Daniel Puzey Jeff Dakin Ian Carey Val Neil Johns



Several long time members of the band have now left, Tommo being one of them. Dr A is heading for more blues club gigs, which unfortunately seem to take place mid week, which proved impossible for those members with a full time job. He will be missed greatly and we wish him luck with his future endeavours.

About 10 years ago he got dragged along to a Rock Karaoke by Trevor Smith (Hooker), where be belted out "You Could Be Mine" by Guns 'n' Roses to thunderous applause. Someone said: "you ought to be in a band, mate"! So The Mary Hinge Experience was formed with Adam Vickers (Escape UK/Leon) Franco Caprio (Escape UK/Leon), Dave Russell (Osric Tentacles/Paradox) & Jim (Crackanacker Karaoke).
He has guested with Hooker & Albert Tatlock.
His involvement with Blues Consortium was through the reformation of The Mary Hinge with David Astell on Keyboards and Guitar & Mick Castellano on Bass. Do you fancy singing some blues? Nah! I'm a rock singer but I'll have a go. The rest is history, Tommo is now a Singer Full Stop and he still needs no amplification!!
