Switching Guitar

In January the band played a gig at the Good Mixer in Camden which turned out to be Mike's last gig with the band. For various reasons including 'musical differences', Mike and Denzeity decided to continue in different directions. The split was amicable with Mike and the band both wanting to keep the friendships that had developed.

The hole that was left was more than filled by guitarist Tom Ramsay who replied to an add on Gumtree and after a jam with Simon, came to a full audition and showed the rest of the band what he was capable of. While he hadn't been a professional musician before like other band members, what really caught their ear was his ability to play in ways reminiscent of David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) and Angus Young (AC/DC) which made him a perfect fit for Denzeity.

That decision was proved correct when the band went into the studio to record their debut 5 track EP and Tom laid down some blistering lead guitar parts, astonishing fellow band members. His feel for the music and what needed to be played was absolutely spot on in the pocket and his contributions helped cement some unbelievably fantastic sounding tracks, all to be released soon...

To be one of the first to see the band perform live with the new line up, come along to our gig at the Rock Steady in Dalston, Saturday 13th April. Grab a ticket here!
