DrumBeat World Record Attempt & Charity Fundraiser

On November 21st I’ll be taking part in DrumBeat at Event City in Manchester.

The event aims to bring together 1001 drummers to break the current world record for the “largest drumset ensemble” which has stood at just under 900 since 2012.

More importantly is the charity that each participant is seeking sponsorship for: The Brain Tumour Charity. Brain Tumours are becoming increasingly prevalent amongst the under-40s and research receives little funding  compared to other forms of cancer.

If each participant can raise £250 then they can each fund one full day of laboratory research – so if the event is successful we’ll collectively raise 1001 days worth of funds.

If you’d like to take part you can register here and if you’re interested in sponsoring me or sharing my fundraising page around online it would be both extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. Any size donation makes a difference and goes directly to The Brain Tumour Charity if you use my fundraising page.

Christmas Charity Single Session

Last week I took some time out from my existing sessions to head on over to Shane’s Recording Studio in Grantham to lay down some drum parts for a project that’s very different to those I usually work on.

Recently I was contacted by Shane and asked if I’d be interested in working on a cover of The Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York”, which is a song that’s very hard to not hear at some stage over the Christmas period each year! This particular version will feature a number of local musicians who’re lending their talents to the project and a full list of those involved will no doubt be available soon.

Personally, I think Shane captured a fantastic sound from my setup and I’m really pleased with how even the working versions are sounding as more musicians are adding their performances.

The single will be released on December 1st and will be available digitally and also as a physical release around the Grantham / Lincolnshire area.

For further details, and for information on where this single can be purchased, please head on over to the studio Facebook page.
