THE EX MEN
THE EX MEN
Rock n Roll’s long heritage is drenched with countless classic artists.
As the years roll by, members come and go.
But the songs always remain.
So many artists, so many songs!
The Ex-Men feature four British musicians with their own remarkable heritage – playing alongside legends and icons of music – so there’s no shortage of classic and iconic songs for them to play!
