ABOUT

I grew up in the 50s & 60s, so naturally wanted to be involved in the music scene. I took up guitar in my late teens and progressed by self teaching through folk and blues to rock and pop. There was a lot of free improvisation with friends, (total noise) but from it emerged a gigging band and an appreciation of playing to an audience. The band has changed over the years and has been very successful. www.creativecoversband.co.uk has been playing the past 13 years in and around the south east performing a wide range of popular music at clubs, weddings and functions. More recently I have taken up studying and playing jazz, (getting back to my improvisation roots) and I play guitar in the Morley College Swing Band as well.
I would like to meet other musicians in the local area interested playing jazz, blues and other contemporary music either as a project or for fun.
