About

I'm a UK based professional drummer with 2 decades of gigging experience. I can site read, play to click tracks, ad-lib or learn from recordings. I also have a vast repertoire (listed below) which I have covered recently or extensively and can play as-per-original without the need to rehearse. I have my own flight-cased DW drumkit, my own drum-mics, my own in-ear monitor system and my own transport. In the past I have studied and taught music at degree level and I am able to provide backing vocals on most of the tracks in my repertoire. In my 'Gigs' section you will find a list of public (North-West England) bar gigs and available weekend dates.

Career Highlights Include:
• House musician with 'Blackpool Tower Circus' orchestra pit (2 seasons and 1 Christmas panto)
• Backing musician for Tim Harding, who presented ‘Hi-5’ on Australian TV for 11-years
• Playing the Hard Rock Café circuit in Asia (Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia & Thailand
• Backing musician for ‘The Jerseys, Oh what a night’ Jersey Boys theatre tour
• Performing at an 8000 strong 'Piggyfest' festival with The Jersey Boys Show


Here are a few live audio recordings from various gigs I've played:
