Lineup and Details for Derek Eynon on Thu 5th July 2012
Derek Eynon started out as a bass player in his native Solihull in the Mid 1970s , whilst still a member of the Solihull Youth Choir, and was lead vocalist for the band Night Service who had several radio sessions and scored highly in a Melody Maker national competition. After Night Service split Derek concentrated on bass playing in a succession of rock bands.
In the early 80s Derek as bass player reunited with Night Service guitarist Mark Evans in a new folk rock band, Red Shoes. Two singles were issued and an album, with gigs at major festivals and the NEC, supporting Joe Cocker. The band , without Derek, have recently issued an album in collaboration with Fairport Convention.
Though the 90s Derek was co lead singer in Company Of Strangers, and ZZ Top Trib band Those 3Redbeards From Texas. He saw out the 90s as bass player with Cradley Heath Rock Band Izzy The Push.
Humour has always been a mainstay of Dereks approach, which was very much to the fore in Those 3Redbeards From Texas and also in his 80s side project The Bongo Brothers who appeared on bills alongside Gary Glitter , The Sweet and Rolf Harris.
