Alex Bowler (vocals/bass guitar) - No stranger to the world of rock, Alex was the bass player in McKenna's Gold, the band formed by the legendary rock drummer Ted McKenna (Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Rory Gallagher, Greg Lake, Ian Gillan, Michael Schenker Group). With his precise and melodic bass playing and his clear vocals, he has been likened to Greg Lake.
Alex says. "I have loved Prog rock since the age of 14 and my favourite Prog bands were Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Camel, Focus, Greenslade and the Strawbs. My greatest influence in PROG rock overall was certainly Greg Lake. It's wonderful to think that we both worked with Ted McKenna! That's a very special link for me!
Russell Gilbrook (drums) - Russ is one of the most powerful and, dynamic drummers in the world! He has played with many top acts, including Alan Price, Chris Barber, Avantasia, Tony Iommi, Van Morrison and Peter Bardens of Camel, to name but a few. As well as being the drummer for BEDIVERE he currently plays in Uriah Heep.
Rob Male (lead guitar/vocals) - Rob has earned a reputation as a great guitarist and song writer and is known for his precise and melodic playing, which has delighted many rock audiences over the years. Lovers of Prog bands like Camel and Greg Lake's 1981 band, featuring Gary Moore, will surely love Rob's playing style in Bedivere!
David Churchyard (keyboards/vocals) - David Churchyard honed his piano and keyboard skills through many years of listening to Jon Lord of Deep Purple as well as other rock keyboard greats! Many audiences have delighted in hearing David play the keyboards over the years and his style and technique make him a perfect choice for the keyboard player of BEDIVERE!
