Slade and made the gig his own. With his soulful, blues rock voice he gave Slade a distinctive
sound that took the band into the 21st century, He plays guitar with The Original Jukebox
Heroes and lends his unique voice to all the Slade numbers including Cum on feel the noize,
Mama weer all crazee now, My friend, Stan, Far far away and My oh my.
Guitarist, Phil Hendriks had chart success in the eighties with pop punk band, The Stiffs.
The band still appears at punk and rock festivals all over Europe to this day.
He currently plays with Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers and has transformed the sound and
given it an edge that keeps it rolling on... A fantastic, sparkling addition to the Original Jukebox
Heroes line-up with his inimitable guitar playing style and a voice he can lend to a cheesy pop
song like Bye bye baby or hard edge rock number like The Glitter Band’s Angel face, Phil also
sings The Bay City Roller’s S.A.T.U.R.D.A.Y. Night and The Hello classic, Tell him.
 
Philip Wright,
original singer and drummer for Paper Lace provides vocals and additional
percussion for the Original Jukebox Heroes with his uniquely crafted drum kit assembly and
illuminated, colour-changing drumsticks!
Philip had Global hits in the 1970s with Billy don’t be a hero, The Night Chicago died and
Hitchin’ a ride. Forty years on, Philip’s voice is still as strong as it ever was and he hops onto
the drum kit to treat the set to a medley of these well-loved classics.

Band, however his career has also included playing sessions and touring with many big name
