The Urbane are a four-piece band from Reading, comprising John Mitchell (guitarist for prog legends Arena) on lead vocals and guitar, Martin Raggett on bass guitar, and Paddy Darlington on keyboards. Bob Dalton of It Bites fame has recently joined the band on drums and has played several gigs with them already in the UK and Europe.
Their first album, 'Neon' received critical acclaim upon its release in 1999, and their second offering 'Glitter' has also done rather splendidly as well. They have supported a number of well-known musicians at gigs across the UK and Europe, including Marillion, Kings X, Steve Hogarth, Bowes & Morley (Thunder) and Asia.
