Save Litchfield as Jeff Lynn
Red didn’t join the band until January 2019 and was a fantastic asset to the show. Music has played the piano since the age of five and has always played an important role in Red’s life. Growing up listening to bands like AC / DC and Fleetwood Mac, he made a natural progression to the guitar at the age of nine, playing and learning from artists ranging from Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Whitesnake and Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy) to Daniel Beddingfield and Pete Waterman.
After six years as a semi-professional guitarist, he joined his first international functional band. After contracting four contracts on cruise ships, ferries and five-star hotels where it’s normal to play up to five sets a night, he quickly took on the mental and physical challenge it takes to perform in an energetic party band. It also forced him to hone his basic background vocal skills, which became the lead male vocalist in a band of two singers.

Buddy joined the show in early 2018, taking on the full-time role of American pop / rock legend Tom Petty, who we sadly lost in 2017.
