ABOUT

Good solid experienced mature drummer available, knowledgeable in most genres of music, looking for more playing options. I really enjoy live gigs and I'm looking for a band that needs a new drummer. I have quality top of the range drumming equipment, my own transport and I don’t mind travelling for the right band. You won't be upset with my skill level and laid back attitude with a mature fizz.

Influences

I have lots of varying musical interests and genres from classic rock to soul to r n'b, jazz, big band, mid-west rock and covers etc. I've worked with most genres of music you could think of and even a 12x piece big band etc. In my youth I played with lots of bands in and around the Manchester and North West area covering all sorts of music, I’ve recently been working in the studio in the Worcestershire area (with a self-penned) Prog Rock band, helping complete their latest double album and also working with a 5x piece 60’s to 90’s covers band.
