ABOUT

55 years old. Played in the pubs and clubs in Perth in the 1980s and 1990s, before heading east and then overseas. Have been playing in Asia for the past few decades. Also played in a North London soul band in 1987/88, and various bands in Melb 1993-5. Have played in a classic rock band in Jakarta 2005-2020

I have played a variety of styles: classic rock, soul/R&B/funk, jazz, acoustic/folk, even trad jazz. I can play upright bass, but probably need a few months to get my chops back again.

Played in a number of bands in Perth in the 80s/90s - most probably not well known or remembered. Most well known was probably the Arctic Cavemen which was a popular pub band with a brass section in the late 1980s/early 1990s. I also put together another band with brass section called Sid-chrome and the Sockets in 1986/87

Was in the first batch of graduates from the Jazz course at the WA Cons of music - so was taught to arrange, read etc...although I am from a classical background so could always read. Was the bass player with the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra back in 1985/86 when we played across Jazz festivals in the UK
