Meet the Team

 

 About Matt 

What can we say about our Guitarist/Vocalist Matt?! With a haircut that's a cross between Jonny Bravo and a member of the Peaky Blinders gang, this guy gives 110% at every performance! Here is the guy that isnt afraid to make those important announcements down the microphone at your party in front of an audience. 

Matt is a self taught musician who picked up the guitar as an escape from growing up in the social care system.  Matt has progressed from those early days to go onto to have over 14 years experience playing in Function bands that have played across the UK and overseas. Matt is also an accomplished songwriter who released his first solo EP in 2012 and is currently working on new material for a second album under his stage name www.sonnetsmith.com . He is also a session musician and loves spending time in the studio laying new original tracks down with other artists and bands.

With licks that would make Kiss jealous, Matt also brings the comedy element to the band! During the week, Matt is a youth worker /motivational speaker for www.smashlifeuk.com and enjoys meeting people from all walks of life. Watch out for Matt knee sliding on the dancefloor with his favourite red or black Gibson ES 355 guitars, all whilst playing your favourite guitar solo's!

 

 About Kev

What do you call someone who hangs around with musicians? The Drummer! Meet Kev... He's the guy who really knows how to keep the beat pumping all night long! (Insert Lionel Richie impression here)

Kev - our Drummer/Vocalist has experience playing with a multitude of bands with varying genres including: Blues, Soul, Progressive Rock, Jazz and Pop. He has worked with Chicago based Camille and Kennerly aka 'the Harp Twins', is currently the drummer for international band 'Eumeria' and has also been featured in 'Modern Drummer' magazine (2014) and is endorsed by Duallist drums and pedals. Kev plays a top of the range TAMA drum kit when he gigs with Sonic Boom and with only two like his in the UK, you can be sure if you book us you will be hearing and seeing a very unique piece of kit!

Although Kev hits hard, he is mild mannered and very approachable. Kev is the scientist of the band and loves nothing more than mixing and mastering tracks in the studio for various artists and producing our great live sound. Kev is also a graphic designer who is responsible for designing all of the Sonic Boom marketing and website. He can usually be found throwing questionable shapes on the dancefloor when he isn't playing his now infamous drum solo!

 

About Simon 

Who lays down the groove all night and keeps all the guests dancing - that will be our ultra cool bass player and lead vocalist Simon. 

Simon is famous in his own right having won guitarist of the year in 1998, appeared on ITV's 'Stars In Their Eyes' programme, toured and written with Welsh metal outfit Budgie (whom world famous band Metallica cite as an influence and have covered some of their songs). Simon has also amassed a large fan base of his own over the years having performed across the UK in his 'One Man Rock Show'  which displays his legendary guitar playing skills. Simon has also performed as part of musical theatre production shows that have toured throughout the West Midlands, most notably in the We Will Rock You Musical at The Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. 

Simon even has his own WIKIPEDIA page outlining his impressive musical experience!

As well as gigging extensively with his one man rock show Simon also teaches people of all ages guitar and bass. Simon has taught some very talented musicians over the years who have gone on to have great careers within the music industry. 

A humble and very experienced musician with expertise in lead vocal, guitar and bass duties you can be sure a Sonic Boom show with Simon will blow you away. You can catch Simon at shows rocking out with his long hair and belting out the party classics with the rest of the band!

About Nikki (Female Singer Package Add on)

Nikki is a bubbly , chatty , happy all American girl who has an amazing vocal range. Nikki isn't afraid to jump around and get involved whilst performing, so much so we have sometimes lost her in the crowd of people partying and dancing away!

Nikki is available to book alongside the band for your event so let us know if you would also like some female lead vocals alongside our male ones and we will send you a quote for her services.
