Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a singing keyboard player based in Essex. Been playing full time now for many years and have played all styles and genres with many different types of bands. For many years I have worked on Cruise ships playing keys and singing with the showbands. I have done a few house band residencies including Heaven holidays and Warner Hotels and also toured with a number of showband/tribute acts. Because of the wide range of bands I work with I have a large repertoire and can normally pick up new tunes very quickly. I can read music although my sight reading would have to be described as “rusty”. I have recently recovered from a car crash spending most of 2017/18 in a wheelchair. Fully recovered and started working again just in time for the world to shut down so spending most of my time in "online" sessions
