I have been playing drums and percussion for around 40 years; incorporating a full range of styles in many ensemble situations including rock, blues, soul, R&B, jazz (both big band & small group situations), folk etc. I am able to read (drum) music which has been used to good effect when required to back cabaret.

As well as working constantly in live situations I also have experience in recording situations and aware of the requirements of the studio.

I have played drums and managed the Bristol based 6 piece soul, funk & motown band Souled Out since 1993. We are a professional outfit with guitar, bass, drums, sax, trumpet and a lead singer. More information on this act can be found by visiting our website www.souledoutbristol.co.uk
