About.

Hello, I am a freelance drummer and percussionist. I have over 35 years’ experience gigging and recording with a variety of bands around the north of England, including:        3 Speed, Soulfish, Long Trick, Jonny C and the Blues Assassins, The Ruby Stone Sound, Big Town Boogie and many others. I’m a big fan of most musical styles and equally happy playing  rhythm & blues, pop, rock, soul, funk or anything else you can throw at me. I have experience playing in trios, five-piece bands and 9 and 10-piece acts.

Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to support a number of big names, such as Edwin Starr, Wilko Johnson, Buddy Whittington and Steve Phillips. I’ve also appeared on stage at several UK festivals, including The Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham on the Tom Robinson stage and The Great British R&B Festival with three different acts, 3 Speed, Late Night Call and Long Trick.

In addition, I have performed kit and percussion for a variety of musicals and stage shows, including Fame.

Currently, I'm a member of both Big Town Boogie and Tonight We Ride.
