REDband consists of  professional musicians who’ve played together in the resort over many years. More recently they've been involved in various rock musicals written by Margaret O’Hanlon and produced by Whirlwind Productions, including California Dreamin’, London Calling, 27 and Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide.

REDband lead vocalists Margaret O’Hanlon and Charlotte Graf are joined by Ivan Hamilton drums and vocals, Mark Wilson keyboards, Matt Anthony lead guitar, harmonica and vocals, and Nigel Hirst plays saxophone, rhythm guitar and vocals.
