MOMENT

At the moment, Amber Lights, who are lead singer Mandy Hughes, keyboards player, Lynette Durrant, drummer Nick Jones, lead guitarist, Les Jones and bass guitarist Andrew Tucker, are playing other people’s music but have just started to write their own material.

They started out as a trio but since their formation they have gone from strength to strength and are now a five-piece playing a wide variety of music.

And their plans for the future – they hope to become better known and eventually do some recording.
