James Goodey


Band to Join.


Been playing drums for 10 years. I took lessons shortly after starting, and passed the Trinity College Grade 8 exam in 2016. Picked up guitar in 2011, and I have become mildly proficient at that.

I have been gigging locally since 2012 playing drums in both cover bands and original too.

I taught at a drum academy in Colchester for a several years and now teach from my home.

I'm mostly interested in listening to rock and blues, folk, country, but I am very happy to listen to, and play, most styles of music.
