Brian Grace - Lead guitar, backing vocals Brian is a well-known musician in Ireland and has a career spanning almost 30 years. He first played with the legendary Brush Shiels (Skid Row) in the '80's, and then played and recorded worldwide with Rob Strong, Andrew Strong (The Commitments) and Juliet Turner. Brian was musical director on the famous Vibe for Philo in Dublin and was a major contributor every year since 1986. He is widely regarded as one of Ireland's finest guitarists and would give any players out there, past and present, a serious run for their money. 

Phil Edgar - Lead guitar, backing vocals Phil hails from Lisburn near Belfast in Northern Ireland and was born to play rock 'n' roll. His early career saw him play with local bands and was heavily influenced by the music of Thin Lizzy, The Eagles and Peter Green. More recently Phil has had major exposure with Matt Wilson in The Sensational Northern Irish band, El Dude Brothers. Phil's reputation as a young tear-away guitarist gives ALIVE AND DANGEROUS a sparkling injection of passion, style and flair. 

Matt Wilson - Bass guitar, lead vocals Matt is a Belfast based musician and vocalist with a fervent love of blues, rock and soul. Starting off at an early age as a boy soprano, his teenage years saw him flirting with various bands, playing standards from Jimi Hendrix, Bill Withers and Funkadelic, leading him to become one of Northern Ireland's most sought after radio jingle and corporate vocalists. The influence of Thin Lizzy's music and in particular, Phil Lynott's vocal and writing style, makes him the perfect frontman for ALIVE AND DANGEROUS. 

Brian Downey - Drums Dublin-born, Brian first tasted success in Ireland with the top 20 hit 'Morning Dew' before forming Orphanage with Phil Lynott. The two went on to form the legendary Thin Lizzy with Eric Bell and Brian remained a constant member until the band split in 1983. Brian worked on Phil Lynott's solo albums and the subsequent Grand Slam project. He moved back to Dublin around the time of Phil's untimely death on January 4th 1986. Brian remained in constant demand as both a touring and session drummer and regularly played concerts and recorded with guitarist Gary Moore. Often cited as being an influence by many of the world's top drummer.
