I've been playing the drums for 30 years now and I think I'm getting the hang of it. Starting out in the primary school band, I spent my youth playing kit in the local citizens orchestra and swing band. I did the music college thing and I have played professionally since. Although most of my work is in the blues and roots scene I can be found performing a wide variety of music with a wide variety of people. I'll play anything. Except country music of course. I have been fortunate enough to play with many of Australia's best musicians. I put this down to being fun and having a strong work ethic. Currently I'm am mostly performing with my band the Backwood Creatures. I also play a few corporate covers gigs and I have recently formed a jazz trio for some self indulgent fun.
Watch the video below if you want to see me rocking out with the Backwood Creatures. There might even be a short drum solo in the middle.
This is a clip of me and old mate Lloyd Spiegel blasting out a rocking version of 'When the Saints come marching in'. Its a personal favourite of mine and captures the enormous energy that the two of us have together. I toured with Lloyd for 3+ years and had a great time.
This is a clip of my jazz trio. I really enjoy this band as it is all about making great music.
Yes I am available for pick up work if the price is right.
I also play guitar and bass and write and record original music under a pseudonym.
