Modovar

Modovar are songwriting team, Christopher Beecham (Vocals) and Glen Wisbey (Music). Each member of this duo brings their varied and eclectic musical influence to the mix and so the name, Modovar, derived from Arabic and ‘of uncertain origin’ perfectly captures this diversity; influenced by formative synth artists, Yazoo, Depeche Mode and Eurythmics, inspired by classic pop, torch song singers and 70′s soul and with more than a nod to the dance floor, Modovar’s sound is uniquely their own and yet immediately accessible to the listener...

DMK is certainly a very unusual kind of band. For one thing, it is one of the few bands in rock’n roll history whose members all bear the same last name –besides the Jackson 5, of course… and the Ramones, even though they don’t really count because they cheated. But this trivia fact is the least of DMK’s vast list of oddities that makes it stand above the rest...
