The 2 Strokes are an Oxfordshire based 3 piece, Brandon Colman on guitar and vocals, Simon Cater on
drums & Dave Lewis on bass. Their energetic live set of original material, guitar driven rock and blues and
a few well chosen covers that display their musical influences continues to please their growing fan base.
Brandon began writing songs as soon as he picked up his first guitar, honing his skills with stints in covers
bands, a degree at music school in Brighton and individual sets in pubs and clubs.
Dave picked up the bass guitar for fun as a teenager when his brother formed a band with friends and couldn’t
find a bassist, things quickly became serious when his brother came home and cheerfully announced he’d got
them a gig in 3 weeks time. He then joined a local ska band, ‘The Skarabs’, supporting Bad Manners when they
played Friars in the civic centre Aylesbury.
