Kev has been a member of the Yeovil music scene for a number of years now. In the 90’s he was involved with bands such as Snoopy, Cut ‘n Run, Once Bitten & Barking Mad. In the early 2000’s he & Geoff got together to form Crosswired which carried on for a number of years in various formats. Kev & Geoff reunited to form Bad Edukation in 2015/6 & the band has gone from strength to strength since then.
Kev’s main guitar hero is Paul Kossoff from Free & really enjoys ‘riff-based’ music, such as Thin Lizzy
Syd has been there, done that over his many years of playing. He has been on European tours, USA tours & played with some quality musicians in his time. He & Geoff first got together in Railhogs, a 3-piece blues/rock trio which gigged hard for a couple of years, then joined Bad Edukation in 2016, initially to help out with the band having been let down at the last minute, & has stayed since. Syd’s steady & powerful drumming underpins what the band is trying to achieve. He is now adding vocals to the mix & is enjoying the brand of music the band is now producing & the direction in which it is moving. Syd also does a Tuesday night show on the local AbbeyFM station which reveals his eclectic musical tastes.
Phil joins the band bringing a wealth of gigging experience from lots of local gigs, solo work & work with Shadowmania with Bruce Welch of the Shadows where he has done UK & European tours.
Phil also brings an extra vocal presence to the band. both backing & lead which gives us a full 4 vocal stage arrangement.
Geoff cut his musical teeth in the North West of England & had a significant playing gap until he settled down in Somerset. The early Crosswired was his first foray into the local music scene & the band were one of the busiest around with their brand of Classic Rock. He then joined R&B band Rhythm Room and spent a hectic couple of years chasing round lots of venues including The Cavern & O2 before teaming up with Syd in Railhogs. Every band needs a solid rhythm section & Geoff & Syd endeavour to provide that. Geoff is the band’s main vocalist.
