I Started singing professionally in the 80's as the lead singer fronting resident bands in top holiday centres throughout the UK. The winters were spent either in residencies in London's exclusive nightclubs or functions in West end 5* Hotels.
I spent most of the 90's in duos, playing Keyboards, sax and singing in residencies at 5* hotels in Europe and the Middle East, also as a regular guest at the Hilton Jazz club in Abu Dhabi.
Settling back in the UK in 2000, to form a Santana tribute band playing keyboards, with an excellent guitarist, some fabulous musicians and a great vocalist. During that time we played in Beirut, St Petersburg and toured the UK Town Halls and rock venues. Since then I have sung in Salsa, Rock, Pop, Blues and Jazz Bands! .
Just getting established in Bournemouth as a Solo Singer, also with duo, trio and 4/5/6 piece band.
