Both accomplished guitarists, Greg has extensive touring experience with cult band, King Rocker; whilst Danny has travelled the world as an original recording artiste & also as the guitarist in Dressed To Kill, the world's longest running kiss tribute.

Paul Thompson - Bass
Taking care of the low end is Paul Thompson. Having travelled the world within the festival scene for the best part of a decade he is now the driving force of the rhythm section for WSUK. Taking influence from such musicians as Steve Harris and Geddy Lee he delivers a hard hitting performance every time.
Matt Blakout - Drums
And last but by no means least....Every snake has a tail....& WSUK are extremely proud to have a tiger as its tail. Legendary Welsh glam rock icon, Matt Blakout from Tigertailz is the WSUK time keeper. Visual and exciting to watch, Matt's experience & resume is even more impressive. Having played the world over and sharing the stage with the likes of Whitesnake themselves- and some of the most iconic names in music history- Matt commands everything from his drum stool. Seeing is believing....and Matt never fails to deliver !
