Played Glastonbury with Dutty Moonshine Big Band!

A busy summer drumming with Temple Funk Collective as part of the Dutty Moonshine Big Band festival tour, including the Shangri-La Hell stage last weekend at Glastonbury. Played at 4am to a Huge crowd of 5k people who stuck around after Andy-C and Friction who played just before us and it was incredible.

Other festival shows this summer include Bestival, Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Camp Bestival and Beautiful Days.

Ireland Tour with The Young Dubliners

Just back from 8 days touring Ireland supporting LA celtic rockers The Young Dubliners playing originals by Brendan De Belder along with Danny Rico for Brendan’s project Bitter Hands Hit The Spot. It was a blast. Love the hospitality of the Irish and the enthusiasm of Americans.

George Clinton Masterclass

Had the privilege to meet one of the great funk pioneers at Metropolis Studios, London while at a playing of some original Parliament master tapes. Never heard Starchild with such high fidelity, a treat for the ears.

Videos of me playing Bass and Drums… At the same time!

As a bassist and a drummer I love sounding my bass parts through the drum kit, creating parts that compliment and support the groove but add tasteful complexity. I’ve composed some rhythm section grooves to simulate a laid back funk situation for the kind of parts I write as a rhythm player, and to show off a bit too!

Thanks to Mike Bannard (recording and mixing) and Aaron Delgado (filming and editing).
