The ImprompTUNES are an Acoustic rock pop duo who perform an eclectic mix of music. They are Jonny Shock and Joanne Holt Jonny Shock is a talented guitarist and singer whose attention to detail is greatly admired. He picked up the guitar when he 14 but drifted away from his musical love for a while and returned to it with a passion a few years later. His early musical influences were Nik Kershaw, Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Kinks and Neil Young not forgetting Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and The Who. Jonny has played in many different bands mainly heavy rock based. As his musical tastes have matured he is now acoustic based driven in this direction mainly by The Who and in particular Pinball Wizard. He greatly admires James Taylor, Crowded House and the Finn Brothers. Jonny has a repertoire of over 200 songs and can cater for most occasions. If you want to catch Jonny live he regularly hosts open mics in the Ramsbottom area and loves to see new talent developing. Joanne always astounds with her rich vocal talent. She is rather a late comer to the guitar having only started playing around 10 years ago as a means of avoiding the curse of karaoke and backing tracks! She has a deep passion for live music and has a varied musical influences Her early days were involved in the more 'diva' and cabaret type singing and she also had some involvement in musical drama. However her musical tastes have matured and learning the guitar has had the largest impact on that, initially if it was three chords and she could play it she loved it ! as any guitar newbie would tell you. Obviously over 10 years her playing is much improved and she now provides a stable background of music for Jonny to weave his magic on. Together Jonny and Joanne perform a fantastic mix of rock pop covers not from the usual play list and produce some great harmonies together. More recently additional instruments have been added to the set with Jonny on Mandolin and 12 string guitar and Joanne on Ukulele and glockenspiel. Used ona Metallica cover which always gets a good response

Sunday saw another debut for Open To Suggestions who made the short journey across from Ramsbottom. What a refreshing change they were. A great choce of song selection and never heard Bjork done on a Xylophone before. Thank you so much Joanne and Jonny
