Thanks for dropping in!

I'm a drummer and teacher from the Isle of Wight now living in the West Berkshire market town of Newbury, currently playing with Three Letter Agency, Dr. Vegas and The Push; as well as regularly depping in other acts when required.

Aside from playing with my bands I also have a large number of private students with an incredible success rate for examinations though various exam boards, including Guildhall and RockSchool.

I've also been fortunate enough to work on some great clinic tours as a tech with drummers including Stanton Moore (Galactic), Chris Coleman (Stevie Wonder, Prince) and most recently Keith Carlock (Steely Dan, John Mayer, Toto).

At the London Drum Show last year I was the stage tech for the artists performing in the MikeDolbear.com Masterclass Room. That included setting up and assisting for drummers such as Karl Brazil (Robbie Williams) and Ian Thomas (George Michael).

I also regularly review items and contribute to the MikeDolbear.com website.

For information on my services as a tech or to find out more about lessons please use the contact form, and thanks for stopping by!

Dr. Vegas

Having gone through a few line up changes, the current Dr. Vegas is very much a function and wedding band with a set of classic and modern pop, funk, soul and disco tunes.

We're available to book for weddings and private functions.

The Push

What with Vegas heading down a less rock heavy route, I found myself at the then of 2015 rehearsing and jamming with some rock loving guys in Newbury.

A year down the line and we're playing gigs laden with classic and heavy rock tunes from the likes of "Thin Lizzy", "Thunder" and Rage Against the Machine".
