Need a Drummer?

Need a drummer? I am available to hire!

I have done over 2,000 gigs across the UK and Europe, as well as performances in the USA and New Zealand.

I specialise in Pop, Blues, Motown, R&B, Funk, Soul and Disco, but I have been known to turn my hand to Electronica, Ceilidh bands, Shows, Musicals and even Pantomimes. I am comfortable in all surroundings – from intimate club and pub gigs to large 10,000+ events.

I come complete with quality acoustic drums and cymbals, selection of snare drums and electronic percussion when necessary. I am a good reader, a confident improvisor, and am happy working with clicks and backing tracks both live and in the studio.

I take pride in all of my performances, and my number one aim is to make the music, the audience and the other musicians feel good.
