All the members of the Papa Bears are active in other musical areas.

Richard was MD for the Trinity Operatic production of Little Shop of Horrors in March. He was once again joined by Dave and Ron in the band for the show.


Richard and Dave recently wrote the score for a new production of an original play 'STRANGEWAYS' by local writers Andrew Jones and Simon Matthews. The play was originally performed in 2008 and used well known rock and pop songs as its soundtrack. Richard and Dave along with Ron Davies were part of the band for the show.


The show was restaged in November 2012 with new, original music. Richard, Dave and Ron were the band for the production.

The same trio performed original music composed by Richard for A WINTER'S TALE the 2012 Open-Air Shakespeare at Little Moreton Hall. This was the fourth year of the collaboration and Keith Brightmore has also taken part in these productions in previous years.

Keith sings and plays regularly with his talented wife Janet who sings and plays the harp.

Paul is to be seen from time to time treading the boards in local productions of musicals such as Pirates of Penzance and Jesus Christ Superstar at Crewe Lyceum.

Roger Key is very busy playing with a variety a jazz and soul bands.

Terry Earl Taylor is always causing trouble somewhere. His fantastic album of tradional and original banjo/vocal music ANOTHER TIME is just one of his accomplishments. He was a featured musician on Robbie Williams' album Rudebox, and toured with the Acoustic Whitesnake in 2012. He is currently developing a rockabilly band which includes Ron and guitarist Steve Cooling. 

Jenny now lives in Essex and sings with brother Pete in London whenever he rings up and asks. She is also exploring a new musical partnership as we speak.

Sarah perfoms in musicals and has an enviable track record of playing leading roles.

Sasha is working on a debut album
