About The Band
Shine On met whilst studying at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM). This has instilled in all the members a professional and committed attitude towards live music. The band have varied musical experience and influences.

Drummer Robbie has been playing drums for 16 years, starting with rock bands in Worcestershire. After moving to Brighton he completed a degree in Music and became a full time musician and drum tutor. As well as rocking out with Shine On, Robbie also enjoys playing funk and hip-hop.

Brothers Jon and Mike both moved to Brighton in 2008 after growing up between Scotland and Canada. Mike started learning guitar at the age of 14 and has recently completed his degree course in Music. His varied musical taste includes Foo Fighters, Muse and Dire Straights. Both brothers are accomplished musicians and swap around instruments during sets as well as singing backing vocals. Jon admires a range of bass players including Nathan East (Eric Clapton) and Mo-Town's James Jameson. He has played with a wide variety of acts over the years, everything from reggae to metal. His commitment to music also saw him busking on a balcony for 8 hours.

Singer Ian has sung and played piano since the age of 6. He gave up a career in Pharmaceuticals to pursue music professionally and teaches piano locally. Ian has played piano on ITV's 'The X Factor' and has performed on TV adverts and at The Edinburgh Fringe with professional choir Blossom Street.

Andi has been playing guitar for over 10 years and, after moving to Brighton to complete a music degree, he joined Shine On in the summer of 2010. Andi has played in numerous original bands and is experienced in performing a wide variety of musical styles. Some of his favourite bands/artists are Explosions in The Sky, Bon Iver, Deerhunter, Burial and Band of Horses.
