Alan Tarpey - lead guitar, lapsteel, vocals
Alan has been playing guitar since he was about 12 years old after saving money from his local paper round to buy his first electric guitar. Influenced from an early age by the likes of Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd, he has always played a mixture of rock and blues in several local bands, most notably playing lead guitar in Manchester rock band Twe1v3, and more recently in the Alan Tarpey Bues Band, along with bassist Jack. The chance to play in a Floyd trib band is an opportunity he has long dreamed of.
