I have been drumming since the age of 7. I love drums. I had lessons from the age of 13 using Buddy Rich's Snare Drum Rudiments, it took me two weeks doing paper rounds to afford one half hour lesson! I now gig in a rock /pop band. See www.thethree.org.uk I have had the pleasure of playing in clubs and pubs all over the U.K. I have played U.S. bases in Germany, Holland and Turkey, gigged in Spain, Malta, Denmark, Australia, The Shetland Isles and Dubai, jammed on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. I have backed many artists from Wayne Fontana to Lena Zavaroni. I have worked summer seasons in Newquay, Cleveleys and Cleethorpes. I was the resident drummer at The Duke of Wellington in Swinton, which involved a quick look at the artists music and straight on stage, no rehearsal. I was signed to RCA records and had hit records in Denmark, Holland and South Africa with a band called Shabby Tiger, which involved working with Billy Ocean, and producer Ben Findon. In 2015 worked in Pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk with Anne Hegerty at Radcliffe Civic Suite, Heywood Civic Centre and Ellesmere Port. A very varied career, I think you would agree! Involving all styles of music. If you would like to benefit from my years if experience give me a call. 07872665936
