Available as a trumpet player (including flugelhorn /piccolo trumpet) or keyboard player as part of your existing line up, or I can arrange a horn section to suit your requirements.
Also available as a solo performer, performing to backing tracks through a stylish and compact pa system (Provided)
I also work with guitarist Steve Gardiner performing as Take five duo - offering instrumental entertainment comprising guitar, trumpet, keyboard and backing tracks.
At 43 years of age I have been fortunate enough to have already enjoyed stage and studio experience spanning 30 years. Despite trying out other professions along the way, I gradually increased my exposure to the entertainment industry until it became my full time profession.
Beginning lessons initially at primary school, I fell into an 11 piece Soul and Motown act at the age of 13, where I stayed for almost ten years before taking a break with my young family.
My comeback was with touring tribute act Ultimate Madness and Ultimate Specials, although I became involved with many great music ... ians and acts in the years following this.
I resumed my studies with Portuguese Trumpeter Sergio Frade (and continue to train under his guidance) with a view to deepening my understanding of the art of trumpet playing, in an attempt to maximise my usefulness to the world of music!
I am currently based in The Staffordshire Moorlands, where I enjoy good transport links, and year round cold weather.
