GARY LUCKHURST

As founder member of the band, Gary sets the tone for the gritty indie rock tones that have become synonymous with the sound of TEN-79.

Formerly of the band 'Rose Underpass' he is a singer songwriter with a wealth of experience in the music world, whose ethos is "if it's not fun, then it's not worth worrying about". Charismatic, quirky and down to earth, he is what every front man should aspire to be, minus the ego.

WALLY YOUNGMAN

Wally takes pride in the achievements of TEN-79 and acts as a main driving force in pushing forward with gigs and recording sessions. His love for music is matched only by his love for his family "hence he really, really loves it".

As drummer and percussionist Wally's beats are paired with Martin's bass to give the band it's mojo. Wally also comes from a background of music and can also be seen alongside Martin with covers band 'The Front'.

MARTIN FITZGERALD

Bassists come in one of two moulds. On one hand you have "bass players", musicians that can hold their own in a rhythm section utilising root notes.

The second category which we call "bass guitarists" are more than this and are able to use their instrument to strengthen the sound of a band making them fuller, heavier and better. This is the category for Martin Fitzgerald, who in his laid back style holds the core sound of TEN-79 At his finger tips. Martin has played with a number of other bands and as well as TEN-79 can also be seen with his covers band 'The Front'.

MATT KENWAY

Matt’s taste for the guitar work of artists such as Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure is one of several factors that make him far from a typical lead guitarist – if such a thing can be said to exist.


Formerly the singer and bassist for London progressive doom metallers Cambian Dawn, before that he was in a number of even weirder bands.


When Matt is not salivating over a near mint condition original issue vinyl of “Seventeen Seconds” he can often be found immersed in an obscure book while simultaneously disposing of an obscure bottle of ale.


He has a terrible weakness for offset guitars.
