About The Band
The New Few are a professional group boasting a wealth of experience in live performance, industry showcases, festivals, TV work and radio.

The band met whilst studying at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM). All members are professional and committed to live music.

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.
