I have been playing for 14 years and have studied to a high level.

I currently play live and record with 2 main acts, a function band and an original one. Although I'm not desperately seeking a new full time band I'll always consider opportunities that may come my way.

For a long time now I have had a hankering to get into a band with a brass section. It could be a funk band or a jazz band, but if you play either of those styles and need a drummer, please do shout with the details!
