I was principal sax with The RA Band for 24 years. I left the band two years ago and have gradually been trying to build up work. I played in a Blues Brothers tribute band for just over a year, I play with a jazz fusion quartet, which is starting to get more gigs. Recently I played a gig with The Blockheads, (Ian Dury's band), they liked my playing and got me back for the next three gigs. I am now one of their main deps and am doing my next gig with them in November. I am also about to start work on The Symphony, which is a very nice Thames Restaurant boat, it has a live band for every cruise. I play tenor, alto and soprano sax to a very high standard. I can read very well and can improvise solos in any style.
