Comprising of brothers Mike (vocals/guitar) and Ron (drums), Josh (vocals/guitar/harmonica), Hilly (bass) and Bob (playing fast as folk fiddle), their renowned energetic live performances are sure to get even the most hardened crowd dancing in the aisles.
Their sound is a mixture of Balkan and Irish music, with hints of ska, and a big emphasis on lyrics. The band have two songwriters and singers who take what they say very seriously – Josh has been published in various poetry magazines, and Mike lists William Blake and Oscar Wilde amongst his influences. Add this to Hilly’s funk-tinged bass lines and Bob’s sublime fiddle, and of course Ron’s unforgiving, mile-a-minute Pogues-style drumming, and it is easy to see how this works. This vast array of styles and influences is what makes the melting pot of Naymedici sound so unique.
