Pro drummer with 30+ years experience. Click/sequencer friendly, easygoing personality with pro attitude, no ego, pro gear and VGSOH.
Completed tour of Denmark with Cirkus Arena, summer season in resident band at Presthaven Sands Holiday Park and a stint on board Royal Caribbean's 'Mariner of the Seas'. Have played with several original bands, recording albums and live work.
Currently teaching drums with DRUMSENSE and involved with various local projects including a heavy guitar/rock band and pub/function band playing pop/funk and soul covers. Former member of 'Cloudbusting', a Kate Bush tribute band (which is where I used the SPD-SX).
Competent in indie rock, pop, blues, R 'n' B, funk and soul and can offer backing vocals as well. I have to tell you that Phil Collins was the main reason that I took up drums. In fact my first kit was a Premier kit and my first 'proper' cymbals were Zildjians all because Phil played them at the time. I have most, if not all Genesis albums, and also some Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett too.
I live/love to play and want to continue to grow and mature as a musician and drummer. Having toured Denmark with a circus and the UK with 'Cloudbusting' travelling is not an issue for me. And yes I do have my own transport.
I hope you like what you have seen and heard and look forward to hearing from you.
