John Evans

John Evans is a professional guitarist.

He has played guitars and banjo (and sometimes keyboards) for The Divine Comedy, joining different line-up of the band, since the recording of Absent Friends when he was brought into the band thanks to his friend Andrew Skeet [1].

He then played on the album Victory For The Comic Muse and continued touring with The Divine Comedy until 2008. John has since contributed to the album Bang Goes The Knighthood but has not toured as Neil Hannon went solo on tour.

John Evans has also played with the London Philharmonic Orchestra for Andrew Skeet’s Greatest Video Game Music (vol. 1 & 2).
