Open format DJ, Professional Session Drummer and Producer.

I'm serious about high quality music and performance.

Wales based though serving the whole of the UK and beyond, I have performed at festivals, art spaces, installations, collaborations, top parties, weddings, social & corporate events.

I have spent much of my working life within the Music and TV industries, where I  have had the good fortune to meet, work or callaborate with some great  names including Sash, Anita Doth, 2 Unlimited, Slade, Carol Decker,  The Animals, Alvin Stardust, Paul Weller, Toyah Wilcox, Comedy Dave, N'Dubz, Chesney Hawkes, Bananarama, Wet Wet Wet, Snap, Busta Bloodvessel and Right said Fred. While working with 'Britains Got Talent' and 'The X Factor' it was my pleasure to work with 'Same Difference' also. While delivering work for TV projects, I have worked along side Rick Mayall, Martin Clunes, Robbie Coltraine, Helena Bonham Carter, Robert Carlisle, Jeremy Brett and many more. I have been very lucky. I now want to bring that experience to your event.

Art and Festivals

I have worked with institutions big and small over the years, been part of calloborative art projects both in and outdoors, and have played at large festivals as well as smaller, more intimate celebrations.

My slots have varied from 45 minutes to 12 hours - It's all about giving you what you want and making sure the experience does not just meet your  expectations, but exceeds them, guaranteeing your guests a brilliant day or night and doing what music does best, bringing everybody together on the dance floor!

Maybe you've never thought of putting a DJ show on that uses live percussion at the same time? As a practicing musician (Drums and percussion), I am able to add this interesting dimension to your event, should it excite your guests. 

Private events

I love to deliver the real bread and butter stuff; life celebrations of all shapes and sizes. I have all the sounds and lights that will fill your space easily. If you're after a big club sound - no problem! Or you may want some ambient dinner music using various samples from jazz or classical music. All music excites me and I can deliver work for all musical tastes. I have many contacts too for bands, professional classical musicians and storytellers/performers who can add an extra dimension to your celebration.

I am an experienced grade 8 Drums/Percussion tutor, having taught beginners and helped experience players to expand thier current practice. I am educated to B.A.(Hons) and MA level in my subjects and have prepared students for grades 1 to grade 8. I also love to deliver DJ lessons and worshops, often working with the community. I work with emerging and established musicians to advise on music production and can also consult on the 'shape' that your music event should take including how to work with sound engineers, technicians and session players. I can also supply these people should it be required.
