‘I Am Alive’
Rory Burnside – Musician keys/vocals – Singer/Songwriter
Rory’s attention to sonic detail comes from his natural ability for recognising pitch, perfect pitch and or absolute pitch. Rory’s comfortable in the studio, his wealth of experience was due to his father and music producer, Jonathan Burnside’s professional music production business. Over the years Rory was able to perform on some of the many records his father and record producer Jonathan Burnside, including ‘Sleepy Jackson’.
Joshua Hogan – Musician Percussion
Josh had never played drums before joining Rudely Interrupted in 2006. “Josh literally sat behind the drum kit and co-ordinated a rock beat” “I was blown away” says Rohan, “right then I knew we could do something musical. Josh’s musicianship has grown 10 fold in the past 8 years. He’s cut his teeth on the road and boy has it paid off, you gotta come and see this guy play, he’s the engine room behind the band.
Sam Beke – Artist Performer & stage samples & costume changes.
Sam has been performing with Rudely Interrupted since conception, sometimes trying his hand at bass and usually ending up on the floor in a non choreographed dance explosion, in his eyes Sam is the ‘Gene Simmons’ of Rudely Interrupted, he’s ultimate dream is to fly onto the stage through smoke, flames and lightning!
Sam Beke, magician in many ways, he’s got capes and costumes, but the real magic is Sam!
