The band played many Northwest venues including Mecca dance halls, until 1997 when the band split up, leading to the formation of this duo known as Secret Combination. Since then John has been teaching piano in their home town of Bolton and then in Windermere where they moved in 2006.
John and Adele now perform mainly in hotels in the South Lakes area with piano or keyboard, as a duo, covering vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Randy Crawford, and many more.

Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden, return to their Irish roots for this intimate musical evening – Pat from Belfast and Dave from Dublin. You can expect some well-known songs, some you may never have heard of, but they will all reflect the Irish spirit in its many forms – nostalgia, romance, emigration, politics, sentimentality, loss, regret, humour, etc..
The songs have all been selected because they say something that resonates with Pat and Dave musically and lyrically. Between songs you will also be regaled with stories from their days in Ireland throughout the years.
