What to do?
Hey it has been a hot summer, makes a change!!
Hi! I`m Chris, though you can call me Tat. I`m completely crackers but I`m gonna try and give you some information regarding the band CLEE-SHAY of which I am a member. (Sadly disbanded in 2002 for economic reasons, I will still keep site open, who knows what will happen in the future?).
UPDATE.. Jeff and Chris have formed a duo called, wait for it !! "Chris and Jeff Duo", I wonder where they got that name from !! Tommy is playing for fun with local "lads".. and still buying guitars... I am helping a local band out on drums at the moment we are called "BAND WITH NO HORSE" a strange name but we really don`t have a horse between us, also had a few studio offers..
Talk of Gordon Rowley of STRIFE fame doing the production, I`ll let you know if it happens....
Any questions? Ask Tat - click to E-mail!
Or talk to me on ICQ
My number is 84618087 Nickname Tatty.
|CLEE-SHAY was formed in 1994 and is made up of four "lads" with about 110 years experience between us (I did use the term lads rather loosely). Two of us are from Chester and two of us are from Wrexham. (No rivalry here folks! - Well not much...)|
|CHRIS Keyboard/Guitar and vocals (Top left) from Wrexham|
|JEFF Drums and vocals (Top right) from Chester|
|CHRIS (TATTY) Guitar and vocals (Bottom left) from Chester|
|TOMMY Bass and vocals (Bottom right) from Wrexham|

|HAIR -||Going, except for my pony tail (Well they say "grass doesn`t grow on a busy street") and "life is just a bowl of cherries".
WHAT THE **** DOES THAT MEAN?

I Wear odd socks on gigs, sometimes barefooted on stage. Write the occasional song. Also has weird thoughts..and dreams...>|

- MEMBER BIOGRAPHIES -
|We have all written our own sections too.
Do you want to check them out?
There are also several fans... no, not that kind, these are electric to keep us cool..
It has been rumoured (only rumoured mind) that we are going to use less gear...I don`t believe it though..
|Our music ranges from the late fifties to the present day, from Eddie Cochran to Robbie Williams and lots of others in between. Remember "Picture of you" by Joe Brown in 1962? Well, we do it. Then there's "Things we said today" by the Beatles in 1964 or how about "Nothing at all" by Ronan Keating 1999. (A lot of people say we are at our best when we are playing nothing at all!)
When I get around to it, there will be a few mp3 files you can download that contain songs that we do on stage (you lucky people). But until then, you'll have to wait...!
Love to hear from you why not sign our Guestbook, Thanks..
I wonder which class we're in...?
