Now the self -taught guitarist and martial arts instructor has decided to join forces with his son Jason, and friends Chris Giles, 30, of Newport, on drums, and Phillip Davies, 30 of Newport, on bass.
The band which plays music ranging from the sixties to modern day classics formed last December.
Jason Robinson said: “I have been in various bands for ages but leapt at the chance to do something with my dad.
“The whole experience has been brilliant, so we are just trying to do more gigs around the Gwent area.
“What makes us different is that we do songs that other bands don’t normally cover.”
The bands next gig is at the Handpost Newport on Saturday September 7 at 9pm.
