Hi Guys N Girls of the drum set Community, My Name Is Andy B
I'm from a place in the middle of England called the Black Country called that because of its connection with coal and the local Iron Industry.
Been paying the Drums from the tender age of eight You could say I am highly advanced in all styles but also have my own definitive style. I Started playing Pubs at 15 years old and progressed to touring bands studio bands origional bands with Recording contracks and management deals.
I play and perform with either of two sets of Drums Currently a Rogers London Vintage 1976 in metalic gold and a Vintage Premier Genista 1995 in Damask Red Natural Birch.

I have Four snaire drums a 14" Ludwig 1978 supraphonic, a Premier Genista Wooden snaire. A deep 14" Black Panther Mahogany zibra snaire and an Arbor deep Chrome rock snaire drum.
I currently play and perform with just one band The Juke Joint Jammers a local Blues /Classic Rock covers bands..Have been known to be in more than one band but that's because i like to be out performing i hate the practice room and would rather be out playing to a live audience then working with musicians who learn stuff parrot fashion and then go out. like to site read it mess's with guitarists heads.........
i would like to thank these guys for being my teachers and mentors
