Meet the band. We are made up of a talented bunch of people who love to entertain. Find out more about us and why we love being part of ignite by clicking on our pictures below.
With over 15 years singing experience Katie is well qualified to lead the band and thrives in being on stage. A secret Rock Chic (oh yes!) Katie tastes range from Leona to Katie Perry and she also has the vocal ability to match...! To date we have found no songs that this girl can't handle, so if you want to challenge her, just let us know!
With the added pressure of keeping Rikki (our male singer) in order, Katie really does have her hands full, but believe me; this girl can handle anything...
A financial adviser by day, surfing guitar dude by night! "Fingers" started as a boy strumming along to Dire Straits & Elvis in his bedroom, and has been playing now for over 20 years, gigging for 10!! With musical tastes from Pink Floyd, 70's disco, 80's pop and rock, little or nothing is excluded from his repertoire. Often found surfing a table or doing the splits on stage (ouch!!) fingers is a true entertainer...
Cath moved to Norwich 2 years ago and still manages to confuse most people with her great 'Manc' dialect - translators are often required! She can always be found at "Access to music" were she is a professional drum teacher... and we are proud to have her with us. Cath has done it all from playing on cruize ships, working in jazz clubs and supporting acts like Roger Daltrey & The Cranberries even playing at the Albert Hall! We just need her to work on her accent now... hmmmm.
A founder member of the band, by day Ryan is a photographer and by night plays keyboards for Ignite! "I mainly shoot weddings and I have on a few occasions provided the ultimate wedding package - I photographed a client's wedding during the day and then played keyboards for the newly-weds in the evening, the look on the guest's faces was priceless!

He's married and has a little boy, Finlay. He's nearly 10 now and his family are his world. Musically trained on piano for 10 years, he absolutely loves entertaining people through his passion and knowledge of music. Changing in a split second from Hammond organs to full on brass sections, piano to full orchestra, he helps to give Ignite our individual sound.
