LATEST NEWS !
I'm delighted to be able to say that I'm well on the road to recovery after eighteen months fighting cancer and I'm back playing guitar, not yet at the standard that I'm used to, but enough to look forward with optimism. We're already planning for 2015 theatre shows which will include Alan Jones as well as the lads that have got us through this difficult patch. We are hoping to extend our working area and include some gigs further south as well as over in Lancashire, so keep a check on the gig list, we've had enquiries from all over the UK.
We also working on material for a couple of new CDs, at least one of which should appear to co-incide with our autumn mini tour.
We are also planning a fourth show called 'KINDA COUNTRY' which will feature well known popular country hits from Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, Don Gibson, Don Williams, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, The Everly Brothers, Eagles , Chris Isaak, Marty Robbins etc etc - - - - AND a special show where we will be inviting our friends The Rapiers from London to join us on stage - we just need to choose the right venue, WATCH THIS SPACE

Hello, I'm Dave Robinson from Sheffield England.
I play lead guitar with our all live band Past Masters, who got together to do a Cliff & The Shadows set to raise money for St Luke's hospice in Sheffield, only to be talked in to gigging as a band , because the shows went so well, the audience loved it. We pride ourselves on our live music, great rock & roll music which is really what this site is all about. After just over twelve months of appearing around the clubs in South Yorkshire, we were shocked but delighted to have been voted the best band by club goers and Mercury newspaper readers. A posse of news people from the press, radio and TV have taken an interest in the band, so we're running with it, long live rock & roll !
If you want a quick look at what we do, there are some video clips at the far right hand side of this page, taken from our theatre shows.
We specialise in the music of the late fifties through the sixties and seventies, and our line up of guitars, bass, drums and saxophone gives us a good variety of material to choose from. Our Cliff & The Shadows set is very popular, and a section of it is always included during a gig. We feature a lot of the great music of the period including Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Elvis, Carl Perkins, Danny & The Juniors, Dion & The Belmonts, The Beatles, Manfred Mann, The Hollies, Rolling Stones right through to Brian Ferry, Gerry Rafferty, Dire Straits and even Tina Turner but to name a few. We play many dedicated rock & roll gigs for those who enjoy a good bop, and these are on our gig list for those interested.
We can also do Cliff Richard and The Shadows, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley tribute shows, or a complete OH BOY type of show including the great hits of The Everley Brothers, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, Billy Fury, Carl Perkins etc etc . . . . the list is endless, as we are big fans of their music, and pride ourselves on the slick presentation associated with such great acts. Half the band picked up their first instruments as teenagers because of The Shadows, and the influence of their music is apparent here. For most of these type of shows we add extra members to the band .
We also cater for the sixties fans with numerous hits from artistes such as The Beatles , The Rolling Stones, Manfred Mann, Gerry & The Pacemakers , The Searchers etc etc . . . . and of course some of the great songs that were hits for Dave Berry - well three of us were in his band . . . . .
Our show is full of nostalgia , and if you are not tempted to dance when we strike up, then you're probably too young ! Make no mistake, this is live music at it's best.
If you are fed up with the baggy shirt and funny hat brigade prancing around to over produced backing tracks, who claim to be acts, Have a look at our gig list and try and catch one of our shows, and if you enjoy good live music, you will be guaranteed a good nights entertainment. But if you're more of a karaoke merchant . . . . please don't come.

We are delighted to announce that Damion will be joining Past Masters once again for selected shows in 2014.
We also welcome new members, Pip Emmerson on drums & vocals, Roy Ledger on guitar and Anthony Lomas on keyboards.
We are pleased and privileged to be able to include former SHADOWS bassist ALAN JONES in our line up for our theatre gigs for the rest of 2014 . The only one he can't be with us is The Winding Wheel in November, due to prior commitments.
This is a great help to me personally as I recover from the chemotherapy that has saved my life, but prevented me from playing my guitar due to 'side effects' of the drugs.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan and I look forward to the shows. I am now able to take part in our shows, but not yet to the full extent.
