Oz Ferrara   Lead vocals / Rhythm guitar
     Band of Oz was started in 1991 by myself and Keith Burns, and in those days it was a four piece. We soon had a huge following playing all sorts of classic rock songs. After a break we teamed up with three ex-members of Jagged Edge. When this ended we formed a Quo tribute band called Four Play Quo for a short while until going back to the Band of Oz some 18 months later. Next, after a brief return as a four piece in late 2007 we went for a complete change of direction forming the new improved current Band of Oz you see today.

     At the tender age of 6 I was plonked down on the piano by my Grandpa and my musical career started from there. Before getting into Rock I played in various brass groups, music societies and Jazz groups but when the chance came to play Rock I jumped at it. This is my third stint in the band of Oz and I’m having a ball. Music teacher by day, rock star at the weekend - it doesn’t get much better.

Neil Munns   Lead guitar / Backing vocals
     Hi, I'm born and bred Pompey. I picked up my first guitar in 1977 and joined my first band 'Nucleus' in 1979. I then joined or formed many bands over the years (noteably Baby Lemonade and Cough Candy Twist and Empire) until I moved to Huddersfield in 2002. I joined 'The Fabulous Rocking Sturgeons' in 2004 which I still do to this day. I first met Bandofoz when I took over from Craig in summer 2005 playing bass. I then reverted to guitar again in April 2007 forming Rockjunkies with Dave, Craig and Nelly and eventually returning to the current Bandofoz in 2009.
