Members of Tom Cat Prowl


Ken Thorne – Guitar & Vocals


Ken started out in London as a member of the band “The Tek-niques” which evolved into “A Small Experience” and included well known London drummer Graham Lear. Ken was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the band “Daybreak” for many years before forming Tom Cat Prowl in 1997.
Ken also writes his own material and performs as a solo act in addition to fronting Tom Cat Prowl.

Chet Risser - Guitar


Chet is London’s best kept secret. An amazing, versatile guitar player who is equally at home tossing off country-riffs alongside great rock’n roll and heavy-metal.

Chet comes from a legitimate line of rock’n roll royalty as his father spearheaded the very popular London band “The Capers” in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.

He has played with a variety of musicians around London and on the East Coast of Canada and include locals Georgette Fry, Ronnie Frey, Gary McCracken and the Audioscape Band (Ex Max Webster), Ed Pranskus and many more too numerous to list.

Bob Keener– Bass & Vocals


Bob is an established veteran of the London Music Scene. His earlier bands include “Dancing Machine”, “The Rudy Davis Band”, and he has also played as a single act billed as “Bobby K”. He currently shares a duo-act with vocalist Ben Shane. Bob also substitutes with other London area acts like “Kelly’s Heroes”.

Gene Vandevyvere - Drums & Vocals

Gene has been on the scene since his high school days playing in various country and rock acts.
His first real "paying gig" came in the mid eighties after joining London's well known band Daybreak. "Ken and I rocked the bars and arenas for fifteen years".
After taking some time off, and playing with the Dirty Sneakers, he reunited with Ken to become a Tom Cat for a couple of years. He then took some time to write and record both his own music, and that of other artists, while still appearing with Tom Cat Prowl from time to time.
Now he's back full time, so put on your dancing shoes.
