Band to Join.


Thanks for visiting my profile. In these 'times of plague' I'm not doing much music outside of home for obvious reasons but by April I will have had both COVID jabs and will be looking to get out there!.

I currently play in a jazz septet which, to all intents and purposes, is a 'rehearsal band' but I'm also always on the look out for other band projects so please get in touch if you think I might be of interest to your band.

I'm at an age when I'm fortunate not to have to go to work in the day. I'm also lucky enough have a home rehearsal room so could rehearse any day, any time with up to three others when the public health circumstances permit at some point in the future!

In terms of what I've done music-wise, I played for many years with the Devon-based seven-piece Dire Straits tribute - 'Dire Traits' - in which band we played all over the south of England as well as a couple of forays to France and Holland Other recent bands include the Cullompton-based 'Slow Burn Blues Band' and the Dartmoor-based ceilidh/folk-rock outfit, 'Banned From The Moor'.

Thanks for your interest. Let's at least have a conversation - that won't kill us!

Stay safe. Cheers, Phil
