Following the recent passing of Peter O'Reilly, the Tornadoes have appointed Lester Fenton as their new drummer and vocalist.  Lester and the Tornadoes have had a long association with Lester having filled in for guitarists David and Wayne when they have had time off.  Lester is an accomplished guitarist however, it is not widely known that he is also a great drummer.  We welcome Lester as the latest member of the Tornadoes and look forward to performing many great gigs together.
