The guitarist has been playing guitar for over 30 years starting off with classical guitar at an early age and obtaining grade 8. He recorded and toured extensively with various rock and pop bands during the 80’s before deciding to concentrate on jazz guitar. He studied jazz guitar with Dave Cliff, Phil Robson and Howard Alden. After developing a love of Latin American music he moved to South America spending two years in Brazil and three years in Colombia.

The saxophonist landed the lead tenor seat in both the Edinburgh and Fife Youth Jazz Orchestras at just 16. Since then, he has played many different styles of music including funk, pop, reggae and jazz rock. He has played with Tommy Smith, Brian Kellock, Steve Hamilton, Malcolm McFarlane, Tam White and the Dexters and also received great encouragement from James Moody and Joe Temperley.

The Tones - Guitar & Sax Jazz Duo Feedback

"I want you to know that the duo were excellent entertainment, offering exactly the kind of music popular with the members of the Supper Club.  We were all delighted with both their repertoire and their prowess as instrumentalists. In fact, they achieved a "first" - they stopped the animated conversation stone dead at one point, all the better for Supper Club members to appreciate the piece they were playing!  I do hope that they enjoyed the evening as much as we all did - perhaps you would be kind enough to pass on these comments to them both, together with sincere apologies for my tardiness in expressing the Supper Club's many thanks? My thanks to you, also, for once again organising extremely good entertainment to suit our requirements." Robin Marriot, December 2013
