Scott only knows like 8,907,450 songs. And can play them all with frighteningly high competence. He has a secret love for blast beat drumming and Air Supply & other Yacht Rock.
Mike...um...yeah. Mike's that guy you don't expect to be brilliant, but is. Hear uprorious laughter during a rehearsal? It's because of him. Oh, yeah. He kicks ass musically, too.
Ben is a bass player. For this reason, he plays bass in the Union Jacks. Sometimes he plays two basses. But not at once. Yet. He also receives the most audience swoons per show.
Jeff found the drums like a lot of people do. A good sense of rhythm & little other musical talent. Effort & practice made him good. Bless his heart when he sings, though.
