ABOUT

Experienced mature drummer knowledgeable in all genres of music looking for more options on the playing side, I really enjoy live gigs and I'm looking for a gigging covers band who need a new drummer. I'm retired but have a very young outlook on life and I have quality equipment, I also have my own transport and I'm looking for more playing opportunities, 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 every genre of music you could think of and even a 10x 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 and in the Worcester area I’ve recently done some studio work (with a self-penned) Prog Rock band, helping complete their latest double album and working with a 5x piece harmony band doing an Elvis tribute.

EQUIPMENT

Pearl Masters MCX drum kit with a Pearl Reference BRASS snare drum plus Sabian HH cymbals and Protection Racket cases.
My second kit (practice) is a Pearl Midtown kit with the same cymbals as before.
