Act Profile

Momentum

Face The Music was founded to create one of the finest
party showbands in the UK. Our highly experienced lineup was selected for their outstanding musical abilities and years of playing professionally .

As a five-piece band, we bring a live performance that is full of energy and style that will guarantee the dance floor is filled. We understand that whether it is a wedding, party or major event, for the evening to end on a high, the band needs to deliver, and we deliver with style! All you need are your dancing shoes!

Emma Atkins - Lead Vocals
Emma has had a passion for music for as long as she can remember. A born superstar, Emma graduated from the University of Southampton with a degree in Music, and has been following her love for songwriting and performing ever since. As a solo artist, Emma released her debut album 'Whole' in September 2018 and when she is not performing her own material, Emma gives her all to Momentum whilst insisting she gets to sing anything by Adele! Emmas mesmerising voice is the very heart of Momentum's sound and will simply blow you away.

Mark Dixon - Keyboards and Backing Vocals
Mark grew up in South Africa, where he found his love for music. Gravitating to the keyboards, he learnt to play songs by ear whilst fuelling his passion for technology by being an early adopter of midi recordings. A true musical chameleon, Mark knows no musical boundaries, being able to play with ease across any genre. As the band’s technical guru he ensures that Momentum have everything ready for the band to perform live. Mark brings meticulous attention to detail in recreating the sounds and arrangements of the original track, whilst giving Momentum its distinctive tonal touch.

Ryan Fielder - Drums
Ryan was born to drum and at a very young age was always found hitting objects around the house with sticks. Small wonder as drumming is in the blood, with Ryan’s father also being a drummer ensuring he was always surrounded by music. Fast forward a few years and Ryan graduated with a grade 8 in drumming and a growing list of bands wanting him to play for them. Whether playing live or in the studio Ryan is the consummate professional always delivering the right beat and dynamics for every song and is the very backbone of Momentum that ensures the dance floor is filled.

Simon Pyzinski - Guitars
Simon was born into a musical family and was exposed to all kinds of different music. Initially fascinated by the drums, at the age of ten he started studying the flute and works of the greatest composers, such as Bach, Haydn and Mozart, achieving a diploma with the highest grade possible! Simon then discovered the guitar and applied his musical chops to mastering multiple genres, ensuring he can, not only shred with the best of them, but apply his dexterity to the very best chords. When not being a financial wiz, Simon is hard at work making sure he is ready to amaze at the next Momentum gig.

Dunstan Rickard - Bass and Backing Vocals
Dunstan has been playing bass since the age of 14 and gravitated to the funk sound almost instantly. A self taught player (or unteachable if you believe his parents), Dunstan played in multiple bands in the Brit Rock scene between the mid 90s and early 2000s. He then formed the disco funk band Shafted, which became the go-to band for major international events such as the Cannes Film Festival and Cannes Lions International Advertising Awards and many more. Dunstan’s bass playing injects the groove into Momentum's Sound.
