I’ve been performing since 1987 or thereabouts. My first professional gig was in 1992, in a band with a few mates from school. The singer’s brother had graduated from the police academy and he asked us to play at the after-party at the Oxley Hotel… it was also my first experience of a pub gig!


My experience ranges from popular music groups in various styles, through to orchestras, swing bands, show bands and other ensembles. I have gained much experience and learnt a great many things from performing with these groups, the main thing being flexibility and versatility.

I have sight-read orchestral parts and full show sets on the night of the performance, as well as learning 4 sets of songs for a blues/rock group with less than a week to do so. I have frequently sat in with bands after getting the call on the day of the gig.

During my tenure at at the Nambour & District Brass Band, we won the State B grade brass band championships in 1996 and 1997, and the National B grade championship in 1998.
My most recent engagements as a session drummer include playing for James G. Brennan as a covers act, as well as subbing for his tribute acts, Uncut Diamond (his Neil Diamond tribute) and Born To Run, his new Bruce Springsteen tribute band.
If you need a drummer for a recording session, or a gig at short notice, I can help. Contact me for my rates and other information.
