The Runaways were formed in 1982 with Gary Bryant on lead guitar and Ivan Thurlow on drums and vocals. 33 years on Eric Pole and Graham Hyde complete the line up on bass guitar and Rhythm guitar respectively.

Since reforming, The Runaways have been committed to producing a quality performance and are particularly renowned for their authentic representation of music from The Shadows, including the choreography!

In the 1980’s and 90’s the Runaways worked alongside famous names in the world of entertainment and as the backing band to original singing stars of the fifties and sixties. They also appeared as special guests on BBC radio and have made appearances on London Weekend Television and Sky TV
Most recently on BBC Radio Essex and the James Whale podcast radio show.

After receiving excellent reviews in various magazines, The Runaways signed a record deal with Polydor to release a CD in Japan. They have since recorded albums for Sweden and Europe and their music is distributed to other countries. The Runaways' album "Into the Vortex" is still available and is being sold at the venues the guys play at and can be purchased on either as a single track or you can buy the whole album! The album consists of well-known tunes and vocal numbers played in an instrumental Shadowsesque style!
