Metröpolis was formed by Marcus in 2009. He roped in Fonz to help get the band on its feet and Fonz never left!! They played their first gig at Chesterfield FC's clubhouse. Little did they know then that the band would play at the new Chesterfield Football stadium years later to launch their 2nd EP. Metröpolis has gone through various line up changes and has gone from being primarily an originals band releasing 3 EPs and 2 albums to being one of the best classic rock cover acts in the North. They have headlined the O2 Academy room 2 and have played various festivals and venues.
Metröpolis are well known and loved on the rock covers circuit for putting on a professional show which includes their massive lighting rig. They continue to keep the set list fresh and deliver an excellent night of classic rock covers. Coming to a venue near you....
DRUMS AND BACKING VOCALS.
Hi, I am Marcus and I formed Metröpolis in 2009. I love all types of music including Motörhead, Little Richard and Joe Bonnamassa. I play a Mapex Saturn 5 kit, Sonor Mikkey Dee signature snare with Paiste 2002 cymbals, DW 5000 pedals and Wincent sticks. I love to play fast and loud and creating a show that people will remember !
Born and raised in Utah, U.S.A. Got my first KISS album when I was four years old and it's been a roller coaster ride ever since! I'm a hard worker, a family man, but I do love my music! My first concert was Saxon in Salt Lake City when I was 15 years old. Little did I know I would one day settle and live in Barnsley - the home of Saxon! I met Graham Oliver several years ago having received a VIP invite to Rock the Lakes near Preston. I met Graham and told him the story of my first concert. He asked "You were 15?" I replied yes. He asked "How old are you now?" I said 40!! Oh how we laughed and laughed!! I can't wait to see you all out on the road for some beer and quality ROCK!!!!
GUITAR AND BACKING VOCALS
Hi, I am Fonz and I am proud to say I am one of the founding members of the band. I undertook lead vocal duties for many years but I am ecstatic that Jay has joined and taken over as lead singer. I am an old rock n roller at heart. I love Thin Lizzy, ACDC and Bruce Springsteen. My gear includes an American Professional Fender Telecaster and a Gibson Les Paul Traditional. My amp is a 100 watt Marshall Silver Jubilee with matching 4x4 cab. It's very loud which is just how I like it !
LEAD GUITAR AND BACKING VOCALS
My name is Shane "Robbo" Robinson and I play Lead Guitar and provide backing vocals for the band.
Influenced at an early age by Michael Schenker of UFO....Black Sabbath....ZZ Top and later on Ozzy....Iron Maiden and Malmsteen to mention just a few I wanted to be a guitarist. Played in numerous bands covering all genres but love my Rock n Blues.
I use Marshall Amplification and Cabs..... Dean Flying V guitars and Super Slinky 9 gauge strings.
I love playing live and loud and will hopefully see you at our shows.
Keep on Rocking.
This is a great place to add a tagline.
I am Dr Chris Kay. Doctor and university lecturer by day, fat string controller by night, I have been playing bass since I was 16 years old, and I have played in bands all over Lancashire and Yorkshire. I took a 10 year hiatus from playing live until moving to Sheffield, when a friend found out I played bass and got me up to play at a jam night. Since then I have mostly played in rock bands but I have deputised on bass for blues bands, pop bands and all sorts. From Ozzy to ABBA if it’s got a groove, I have probably played it.
I get my music tastes from my family, who introduced me to the likes of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Jethro Tull, Queen and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band from a young age. Rock and Heavy metal will always be my genres of choice, with Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper and (more recently) Slipknot and In This Moment being my go to bands. My bass style is influenced heavily by the likes of Steve Harris (Iron Maiden), Cliff Burton (Metallica), and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers). These influences can be seen in my speed and percussive style of play.
