A Note From Jon

If this is the first time you are visiting my website, then hello and welcome! If you are returning, then thank you for your continued interest in what I do.

I am a passionate and driven musician, (some say drummers aren’t musicians – I’ll let you decide!) who thrives on giving the highest quality musical services. I have been playing drums for over 20 years, and have had the pleasure of playing with some of the world’s finest musicians.

If you would like to contact me, feel free to fill out the contact form below and I will respond as soon as I can.

Barney Lowe, Band Leader and Freelance Musician, London

“Jon has always been a fantastic drummer to work with. He is capable of playing many different styles of music to the highest standard, he always takes the time to prepare for gigs, and has always been extremely professional. I would happily recommend him to anyone”

Jorge Montiel, manager of Los Charly’s Orchestra

“We’ve been working with Jon for about 4 years now in Los Charly’s Orchestra, since we meet him he had added and entire new dimension to the sound of the band live as well as in  the recordings. Jon is a very professional and versatile drummer. Is always great to work with him”

Jack Bennett, Pianist & MD

“Jon did a great job depping on a particularly nonstop Panto chair, requiring a lot of visual self-cueing in addition to following the often wayward dialogue and ad lib marking! Highly reliable and would definitely recommend.”

John Cervantes, Jazz pianist, composer, arranger, accompanist and MD:

“Jon’s drumming is an irreplaceable component of my band’s sound. He always follows direction and ideas whilst surpassing my expectations. He’s completely reliable musically and logistically.”

Philip Clouts, jazz pianist

“Jon is a great player; he has a fantastic groove and a very impressive technique. He is easy to work with and has many good ideas for taking the music forward.”

Fudge Jarcheh, Lead singer/Founder of Fudge and The Frequency

‘Jon’s true professionalism and solid timing, frees up space for the others to simply enjoy the music and be free’
