MEET THE BAND...

NIC EGAN - Vocals.
Nic, the charismatic 6’ 10” lead singer of The Tea Set used his height to ensure the band got noticed at gigs. Nick always threw himself around the stage often aided by props such as buckets of confetti to keep the audience on their toes. Nic moved to the US where he now works in the  Hollywood film industry and also directed a number of music videos for the likes of Oasis, INXS and Duran Duran.

RON  WEST - Bass.
Ron played guitar in early days of The Tea Set but switched to bass when Duncan Stringer left in 1979. Far from being the Bill Wyman of the band, Ron’s west-country wit ensured the stage banter with the audience was worth the entrance fee alone.  Rumour has it that Ron stayed on at Watford Art College since obtaining his degree in the role of the janitor.

MARK WILKINS - Keyboards
Computer boffin Mark added unusual electronic sounds, samples, clicks and blips into The Tea Set tunes which made them stand out from the straight rock music other bands were playing at the time. After The Tea Set, Mark went on to program the worlds first piano playing robot for Sony Inc.

NICK HAEFFNER - Guitar
Nick’s psychedelic tinged guitar style helped The Tea Set define their quirky art-pop sound. Nick later went on to release a solo album (The Great Indoors) which is acclaimed as a classic of the genre. Nick is now a eminent Professor of “Psychedelic Field Trips” at a top London University.

CALLY - Drums
Cally was another “character” in the band who would enjoy nothing more than playing tricks on his fellow band members. Cally went onto manage Julian Cope and was last seen on BBC TV current affairs show “Question Time” with Brian Eno (we kid you not!)
