So let's meet the band
Guitar & Vocals
As a rhythm and lead guitarist Mike got his first guitar at the age of 16 and still has it. He learned a few songs from friends, but played on a casual basis. Later, started getting into electric guitars and discovered a whole new world. Mike developed a passion for Fender guitars.
He likes motorbikes and listens to rock ‘n roll / blues. Played in a few bands, took a long break and later met up with the other members of Chapter Three and became a part of the band.
Drummer & Vocals
In the earlier years Steve was on the front line of Johannesburg original bands being offered to sign with RPM Records and playing concerts. During this time Steve played long with some of South Africa’s top acts – No Friends of Harry, Bright Blue, Celtic Rumours and more. His time was well spent playing the circuit in Johannesburg.
In his 20’s he moved to Cape Town got head hunted by original bands, e.g. One Big Rush and India which he spent a couple of years in and out of studio recording on albums and playing live gigs. Since then after settling down decided to move into the cover band scene where you will see him playing for Dusty Rhodes Band as well as Chapter Three.
Bassist & Vocals
Ian started playing as a drummer and studying music 22 years ago, and having grown up around a musical family and his father being a musician influenced Ian’s musical talent. In high school, Ian took music more seriously as he entered the band and gigging scene, this sparked the start of an education and a career in teaching that has span his entire life.
A few years after his drumming journey began, Ian noticed there was a need for bassists, and having heard that drummers generally make good bass players, he jumped at the opportunity to learn an additional instrument. This caused a ripple effect and was followed by a number of years of playing with various bands on many stages.
