Hailing from West London, Daniel took the plunge and moved down to South Africa in April 2007 and loved it so much that he decided to stay! Having been trained on the drums since the age of seven, Daniel joined forces with his younger brother Jon to form a band commencing on a journey that, although ending ultimately without the success that they both craved, lead to an extensive CV which included live performances at all of London's top gig venues (The Palladium, Subterrenea, Barfly, Dingwalls and the Borderline Club to name but a few) and a whole host of recording experiences in some of the country's finest studios including Abbey road and Air Studios. In 2002, the boys decided to call it quits with Daniel opting for a career in the "real world" and Jon opting to continue with his music, earning a reputation as one of Universal Records' brightest young song writers and producers penning tracks for James Bay, Sam Smith, Kylie Minogue, Jack Savoretti, Jason Mraz, Linkin Park and James Morrison to name but a few. Daniel began strumming his guitar for fun once settled in South Africa, commencing a journey which now sees him as one half of one of South Africa's best Live party cover bands. Daniel is an avid Arsenal fan, a lover of fine wine and food and lives in Noordhoek with his wife Lindi and their three children Charlie, Daisy and Liv as well as their two dogs, two tortoises and two pigs!Learn more
Jeandre hails from South Africa’s Northern Cape pioneer town of Kimberley. Having grown up on a farm, Jeandre was a keen sportsman but an injury led him to take a keener interest in music, first starting out behind the drum kit. Then, an epiphany occurred- having watched Mark Knopfler’s ‘One Night in Rome’, he swore then and there that he was going to master the guitar. Having matriculated from school in Kimberley, Jeandre followed his passion to Cape Town where he studied guitar. Jeandre is now one of the best young guitarists in South Africa with an impressive CV performing shows (including Arena tours) with virtually all of South Africa’s top artists including Karen Zoid and Francois Van Coke. Jeandre’s on-stage energy is infectious. As well as performing with Me and Mr Green, Jeandre sells top-end guitars at Music Experience in Cape Town and in his down time loves nothing more than a solid game of FIFA on the Playstation where he claims to be at least in the top 100 players in the country!Learn more
