The Get Down consisting of Mark Ferraby, James Emerson, Erick Kauko Bullen and Tyson Watt, originally formed in 2005. It was clear then that Mark, Erick and Tyson had a synergy, and all that was needed was percussion. Having drummed With Mark and Tyson’s previous band “Ask Alice” they knew James was the right man for the job.
With each member bringing original songs to the table, the band quickly amassed a solid collection of original material. Theyʼve all brought different influences and genre’s to the table; thus, having found that their eclectic stylings, attract a diverse fan base. Ranging from skanky reggae music –to folky blues–to heavy metal–and even punk and country twang, audiences still don’t know what is coming next.
