MEET THE BAND – CALLUM DEWAR
I’m a general fretwork player. I studied Classical Guitar at the RNCM and now work as a freelance composer and performer. I get to play regularly with orchestras such as the RLPO and BBC Phil, and have close ties as a composer with the Bridgewater Hall and performers such as Craig Ogden. In Jukebox I am part of the rhythm section either as a guitarist or bassist.
Movie – There’s a film based on your life which actor plays you?
Probably Frankie Boyle.
Food – You can only have fast food for the rest of your life what is it?
Chilli. I love chilli. The type of chilli that tears off your face on the way in! (Is Chilli fast food?)
Servant – If you could have one fellow jukebox band member as a servant for the day who would it be?
That's an easy one...Our drummer Dan Whitelegg!
Britney Spears – Hit Me Baby One More Time. I’d look great in that school uniform!
Big Brother – Which fellow jukebox band member would you not want to go into the big brother house with?
I’d take all of them in. Could you imagine the all-night jam sessions?
Fresh Trim – If you could any musicians hair cut from history who's would you have?
Dee Snider from Twisted Sister. That is one heck of a luxuriant mane.
Box Set – What's your favourite box set?
Voice – If you could have anyones voice who would you choose?
Helen Mirren. Can you imagine how much that’d freak people out when I started speaking them. Singing voice, it’d have to be Barry White.
Soap – If you could play one soap character who would it be?
Barry Scott from the Cillit Bang adverts. He’s a soap character, right? (cue tumbleweed).
Album – Favourite album and favourite song from that album?
Too difficult! Either: Off the Wall (Michael Jackson) – Get on the Floor or Extreme II (Pornografitti) – Get the Funk Out.
Film – What's your favourite film?
Thanks Callum and finally in your opinion what's the best thing about Jukebox and how do we differ from your normal function bands?
Jukebox never fail to fill a dance floor from start to finish, which is amazing as a musician as it really spurs you on to keep bringing the groove. They are an incredibly fun bunch to work with and a pleasure to share the stage with.
