Born in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and has been playing for over 30years.

His first appearance at the age of 18 was in local public houses and clubs backing singers before changing his playing for ballroom and sequence dancing. His passion still today is playing for dancing as he travels up and down the country for the dance events and due to his music performances, has opened up new oportunities.Often with comments received as "you really must enjoy playing as it shows in your music"

His variety of music, style and arrangements have been well recieved by audiences with feedback comments of "you play with a lot of feeling"
