Rupert has known Donna since he was 19. They used to play in the same band in the early 90’s. The band ‘manti’ formed after Rupert and David were introduced. The tribute band ‘Shrink Floyd’ soon emerged from the 3 musician’s. Rupert and Brent met in 2009 and went on to start original rock blues band ‘Planet Graffiti’.
Rupert owns The Mayfair Studio and records bands during the day and sits in on various sessions on bass guitar. Rupert is a very experienced engineer who has worked with ‘Gary US Bonds’, ‘Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes’, Daniel Pearce (One True Voice), to name a few.
One day Rupert would love to do a world tour.
Rupert studied audio production at the Academy of Contemporary Music.

Fantastic covers band - saw them play last month at a nearby pub and everyone was absolutely loving it. They nailed every cover they did, had everyone dancing and to hear them you'd think there were six people in the band. Brilliant from start to finish!
