Please Welcome Our New Guitarist

Please welcome our new guitarist , Mr Jon Hillman.

Jon, from Walesby, was, by a mile, the one who fitted the band best, both musically and personally… in other words , he’s just as daft as we are!

Having spent many years in the realm of covers Jon was keen to find a band that did it’s own material and , as luck would have it, he came across our ad.

After nailing the audition we offered him the slot on the spot and, giving us renewed optimism in the future for Skeleton Crew.JHScrew

As you might know, we are going to launch this new version of the SCrew in Worksop at The Frog and Nightgown on Saturday December 21st 2013

We cannot wait to bring you the new band and we know you’ll love it too so Bring It On!!!
