" Jazz to Enjoy "
Meet The Members Of The Band
Lynn Thornton (Vocals)
As well as jazz, Lynn has sung with gospel, blues and soul groups, and big bands. She always uses her incredible range and technique to create exciting interpretations of songs and to make them swing so hard you just have to dance. Not many people know that she teaches swing dancing and her love of the fantastic music that goes with it steps over into her singing creating rhythms and shapes that'll sweep you off your feet.
Marius Rudnick (Saxes and Flute)
Marius is a well-known Exeter based musician and plays flute, clarinet and saxophones for Just Misbehavin'. Marius studied modern jazz and big band performance at the Guildhall School of Music in the 80s.
Paul Barnham (Piano)
Some people say Paul was born with an ivory spoon in his mouth and that he played his first note when three days old. However, he soon discovered the other 87 notes on the keyboard and, armed with that, he went on to play in blues, soul and jazz bands of every description. He can do a mean classical turn too but he doesn't talk about that. His excellent comping and inspired solos are cornerstones of the band's performance. Paul rarely misbehaves.
David George (Bass)
David brings both upright and electric bass to the rhythm section of Just Misbehavin'. David is also a stalwart of Totnes Pantomime. He has played the dame, been chair of the society and played bass in the orchestra. Oh, no he hasn't! (Oh, yes he has!)
Ted Draper (Drums)
Ted's musical activity began on piano when he was six but he soon found drums made more noise and he was more excited by that. He was a child prodigy earning money for drumming at thirteen (is that legal?). He drummed his way through the glorious sixties ("if you can remember it you probably weren't there") and is still going today having played all types of music in a variety of venues from damp marquees to high-class ballrooms. He says Just Misbehavin' is a fantastic band - right answer Ted, you're in.
