The John Loveday Band
John Loveday Vocals /Guitar
John started playing music in the mid sixties, and toured extensively through England and Europe with "Johns Followers", including residencies at popular clubs in Zurich and Milan. Also several recording sessions.
After a break, John got back into music in the late eighties and had 12 very busy years with Sax Appeal. Including recording the CD "Just Did It". Another break was followed by the formation of "The Rock'n'Roll Allstars" which evolved from a few different attempts to get a band together. Eventually the last line up came together and John once again had a band of very talented musicians working together and having fun.
And now after over a year off through illness John has formed "The John Loveday Band".
