ABOUT THE BAND

 

GRANT VAN FUNKLE IS JIM MORRISON
Grant has been in bands for most of his life.
On stage he is pure Jim, leaping into the air
one second, writhing on the floor the next,
emulating the lizard king's every move.
Grant is even able to ad-lib poetry just
like Jim. He also performs as John Lennon
with established Beatles tribute band
Ultimate Beatles and lives in Milton Keynes
with his partner and two daughters.






JOE MCGRUDDIE IS RAY MANZAREK
Welcome to our newest member!
Joe has been playing keyboards and
singing in bands since his youth and
has toured Europe extensively as Ray
with fellow Doors Tribute band
The Manzarek Doors. He accurately
captures not only Ray's playing but
also his gravelly singing voice.
We're proud he's now a part of this
number!Joe lives in Gillingham, Kent.

















                                                                             

 
 


 









 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 







 
 
 
 
 
 

 



                                                                                        
 
 
 
 




 

 



 






 

JASON HASTIE IS JOHN DENSMORE
After playing drums professionally on
land and on cruise ships, Jason, an
American recently settled in the UK,
is now the driving power-house behind
The Strange Doors. He gets closer to
Densmore's subtle stick touches than
any other drummer in any other Doors
tribute band and will blow you away with
his playing. Jason lives in Peterborough.


ANDY HEMBRY IS ROBBY KRIEGER
Andy, originally from Manchester, has
played regularly in a number of bands
at venues in Birmingham, London and
Manchester. He plays a Gibson SG
Standard guitar just like Robby's and
is enjoying the challenge of recreating
the unique bluesy jazzy tones that
Robby made famous. Andy lives in
Milton Keynes with his wife and kids.
