Recently I played a number of shows singing lead vocal and guitar for 'RIP IT UP', which was a musical/Dance show starring Natalie Lowe & Jay McGuiness from Strictly Come Dancing. This role involved following choreography/stage cues and fronting a fantastic house band lead by BBC radio presenter and saxophonist Leo Green. I also currently play guitar with some great acts such as CASH, the UKs finest tribute to the man in black. I also sing with 7- piece Rhythm 'n' Blues band Oo-Bop-Sh'bam and just recorded an album feat. some of the UK's best inc.
