Kaye has been leading bands around the area for 40 years and worked in all major clubs in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

Her husband of three years, Peter Carver is lead vocalist and plays the bass keyboard.

Referred to as 'Mr Crooner', he was trained as a vocalist at the conservatorium and has starred in many local musical productions.
