About me

Been playing over 10 years. Achieved a First Class Honours Music Degree from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London. Memorable performances I have played at, apart from function gigs at weddings and receptions, include playing with the KMFM Road show, playing in the high streets of Chatham and Maidstone supporting the charity Help For Heroes. Other charities I have played for include; Demelza House, Combat Stress and Macmillan Cancer Support. The biggest gig I have played at so far was at a festival at Rochester Castle Grounds. I was playing in front of over 5,000 people. I appeared at this festival three times, twice with bands (Oobah Band and Hold Your Fire) and once supporting a singer as a session musician. Other memorable gigs include playing at Brook Theatre for a Bugsy Malone musical. Influences are Buddy Rich, Steve Gadd, Kieth Moon, Ginger Baker, Dave Garribaldi, Vinnie Colourie, Dave Weckl, Jeff Porcaro, Mike Portnoy, Gene Hoglan and Nicko McBrain.
