I'm a professional drummer and percussionist. Both of equal standing. As a percussionist, I perform as well as play and study original recordings and live versions of numbers for accuracy. Substantial rig, endorsements with Roland, Paiste, Vic Firth and Mapex. Drumming wise, solid no faffing approach, again, keen on accuracy to original recordings. Happy to use and experienced with clicks. Experienced in theatres, arenas, UK and overseas travel. 100+ shows in 2018. I have fun on stage, I consider myself a people person, reliable, passionate and dedicated.
I have been a touring musician since the mid-1980s, playing alongside a wide variety of acts from musicals to pop to country, blues and rock and can turn my hand to most genres. I have played venues from the smallest club to NEC Arena, Wembley Arena, Hammersmith Apollo the Sport Palaeis in Antwerp and the 2012 London Olympics' Opening Ceremony. Currently touring UK theatres as a percussionist in a number of successful theatre productions. As a drummer I have travelled to many countries across Europe and beyond. Playing with artists as diverse as Brian Poole, Screaming Lorde Sutch, Brian Connolly's Sweet, Les Gray's Mud, Chris Montez and George McCrae. As a percussionist I have toured with a number of theatre shows including FastLove - a tribute to George Michael, Rocketman - tribute to Elton John, Signed Sealed Delivered - a tribute to Stevie Wonder and The Magic of Motown and Soul Legends
