He has many years experience as a former professional trombonist and has played for many top class band. He has conducted now for over 20 years and his successes with bands such as Freckleton / Moston & Beswick / Bedford Band Leigh / Ever Ready / Carlton Main / Dobcross and many others in the North are well recorded.

    He and his wife Caroline have moved south to Northants for family reasons and he has already made a dramatic difference to the way the band thinks and has brought a touch of musical class to the band room. His skill as a band trainer has enlivened the band and former members have re-joined.

    He has given guidance to the band in terms of it's management and ambitions and is determined to make a mark in the Southern region.
