The Sum of Talented Parts
Kempo (Rich, Hobo, The Shoe Man or "Aren't You The Tilehurst Cobbler") - slightly rippled with a flat underside...frontman from the beginning and still leading the way!
Kempo has always had a passion for all styles of music. He's a singer/songwriter, guitarist and badass vocalist (though he just sings nowadays)!
Sponge, following a drunken pub conversation, founded the Skandal with Anna.
He's been strumming guitar in a multitude of musical misadventures since his teenage years. He's also got grade 8 guitar don't you know?
Dave Harris has been playing drums for a very long time, and has an absolute blast playing with The Skandal, as Ska is something of a passion of his!
Dave is the newest member of the band, having joined in July 2016.
Dave's whole life revolves around drums, and he runs Dave's Drums with his wife, Sophie.
