I've played with a duo, trio, quartet, quintet and big band - and everything from classical through jazz to 80s and punk. At the moment, I'm looking for playing opportunities in the Stroud area - with an open mind as to what kind of music.

It would be great to develop some original content with a bass/cello or another pianist/keyboard. I'd also really like to play more mainstream music with a band. Piano, Hammond and e-piano are on offer, with synth where needed.

I have a fair bit of my own stuff in the contemporary/ambient genre. See www.paulbancroft.co.uk.
