ABOUT

As if by magic, I now have a band :-)

Currently a five piece band. Guitarist, bass, keyboards, female singer with a fantastic bluesy, sultry voice and me on the drums.

I'm Still learning but slowly getting better. I'm a late starter at age 63 now but have owned my drum kit since December 2016 after having weekly lesson for several months beforehand. I'm absolutely loving what I am learning. I have weekly drumming lessons locally. I've played at several open mic jam sessions now.

I had two try outs with a local bands. My first ever experiences of playing live with others. I was briefly offered the position of drummer with one of the bands. We mutually parted.

Determined and inspire by my tutor, I posted on my local town Facebook page for any musicians. 3 guys came back, (two guitarists and a keyboards player) and we met up recently for the first time. All just clicked. We were joined by a bass player though he has gone AWOL so a second has recently joined us.

Our singer has a great voice but has recently had a family crisis that means she has had to drop out for a while.

So looking for a singer. Male of female but needs a powerful voice.

We practice once a week. We have just started going to local rehearsal studios. We are picking songs that have been well known. Each member is adding their influence.

I have my own transport and live within 15 minutes drive of two local rehearsal studios, Mushroom studios near Rayleigh and AT studios at Rettendon.
