Retired advertising exec and have lived in Thailand a few decades. Played dance music when very young then graduated to a Jerry Lee Lewis style trio act after migrating to Australia. Recorded and did TV shows with an Australian "Country Rocker" before moving to Thailand to work. Played in a fine dixieland band here which played at Sacramento Jazz festival and Brisbane Jazz fest - at which we won first prize. Also played at Jazz festivals in Parkes, Australia, Singapore and in Thailand in varying styles and one highlight was command performance for H.M. the King of Thailand. <br />
Returned to drumming few years ago and have small sized jazz kit playing mainly small group acoustic jazz in hotel bars, lobbies, clubs all over Bangkok and in 2008 moved to this sea-side resort which is surprisingly a musical desert.
