My specialisations are pop,rock, tango, jazz, funk and bossa nova but I can apply myself to a wide range of other styles. I have played in several different cover bands including The Drifters and Abba, and while living in Tenerife played electric bass with Blues News, a popular blues and rock cover band. I performed with Blues News at the International Festival "Santa Blues" in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, sharing stage with Ike Turner and Buddy Guy.
I am a founding member of Harmony Sinfonia, a new symphonic orchestra based in Lewisham.
