Catching up with Ges Rogers 

Ges Rogers 1

Ges started his musical career in 1962 aged 5 singing the Birthday song on ATV's Noel Gordon's Lunchbox show.
Ges toured with the Cufflinks on drums/vocals in early 90s for 18 months. The Cufflinks had two hit songs "Tracy" & "When Julie Comes Around".

It was during this tour that Ges met Mike Ellis who later became one of the committed line up of Union Gap in the UK and is still a member of Union Gap UK

Over the years Ges says he has been incredibly lucky and privileged to play with a number of great acts sometimes on a one off basis  - Ricky Valance, TwinkleDave BerryHolliesGlitterband, J.A.L.N. Band, Bucks FizzPretenders, Duran Duran, Michael Bolton and Dexys Midnight Runners - to name a few. Ges also  played drums on Gary Willmots "Love Situation" album. 

 

Ges also played on the Duran Duran demo for 'Girls on Film'. He was asked to join them but turned them down as the band he was in at the time was on the verge of a big deal....which later fell through!
