Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Pre-Recorded Drum Tracks & MIDI Programming
Since leaving school back in the early 80's Newark based drummer/guitarist Neil started chasing the dream playing drums in Rock bands Avalon and Marauder. Playing a mixture of original material and covers Neil gained experience in the Live music scene. Best claims to fame included supporting Lisa Dominique at The Mardi Gras in Nottingham and The Ozric Tentacles at The Holly Bush Inn at Cromford!!
Neil took time out during the early nineties due to a change of job and starting a family but returned to Newark in 1996 and joined covers band No Claims on drums. Teamed up again with Marauder Bassist, Ian 'Lobba' Dobbs and old school acquaintance Kelv, No Claims regularly gigged around the East Midlands club scene and played to many party and wedding audiences.
Having played guitar for some time now but never before played it live, the formation of The Business presented new challenges and has so far been a fantastic experience.
Neil uses Fender Guitars & Basses, Blackstar & Ashdown Amplification and Boss Effects.
All pre-recorded drum tracks are studio prepared using a Yamaha DTX950K Electronic Drum Kit.
