TWEEDIE ~ VOCALS / LYRICS. The lynchpin of
the Inferno collective, Danny has been at the helm of a variety
of acts as well as promoting many other bands and events around
the country. A charismatic and indeed compelling performer, with
a knack for reinventing himself just when you thought you had him
pegged. Truly a man for all seasons.
DEBBIE D ~ BACKING VOCALS. An essential part of the live
experience, Debbie keeps the visual energy levels of the set high.
She adds an effervescent and otherworldly glamour to proceedings,
working as a foil for Danny and keeping the crowd on their toes
(and sometimes diving in). Gets bought more drinks than the other
MARTIN KAYE ~ SAXOPHONE. The inclusion of Martin's mellifluous
sax adds a whole other textural field to the Inferno sound. His
instinctive grasp of jazz and latin grooves (he also plays in the
premiere latin purveyors Salsa Loca) and his classical training
bring an upbeat and improvisory feel to the party. A smooth operator
at all times.
CASS RICHARDS ~ PERCUSSION. Master percussionist Cass has
played with such luminaries as Santana, Duane Allman, Martha Reeves
and Hi Tension as well as on countless reggae sessions. More recently
he has been live support to some of the biggest DJs in the country,
and can be heard on Danny Rampling's Decade of Dance. A true pro.
BARRY CHALLIS ~ DECK SKILLS. The high-profile yet definitively
underground Child of the Monkey Basket honed his considerable skills
DJing alongside the likes of the Herbaliser, Hardknox, Dub Pistols
and the Scratch Perverts. He also opens as tour DJ, spinning hip-hop,
house and drum & bass classics to an always enthusiastic crowd.
JON CLARK ~ PROGRAMMING / PRODUCTION. Responsible for the
beats-and-samples backbone of the Inferno sound. To be found behind
the mixing desk attempting to squeeze more bass out of the p.a.
without ripping the cones out of the stacks. Rarely onstage but
often seen dancing
'from the front to the back'. Nice work if you can get it. Great
