The Shades are a pop/rock two piece band consisting of Martin Burton (Guitar and Vocals) and Jilly Bean (Percussion and Vocals).
The two have sung and performed together on and off for well over 25 years in bands such as The Gents, Lip Service and The Soul Men and The Girl.
Now with a change of pace and an ever widening variety of musical influences Jilly and Martin have become "The Shades" and are currently delighting audiences both young and old with their unique blend of guitar based music with a large helping of dual/harmony vocals.
