Erics Italian Job. New Vic Theatre, Newcastle Under lyme 

Scott will be drumming and performing in Erics Italian job at the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle Under Lyme.

Showing: Monday 21 August–Saturday 2 September 2023

David Graham Productions


Eric, having finally got a booking for his disco in Leighton Buzzard, witnesses the Great Train Robbery when his van breaks down as he’s starting for home.

Scotland Yard get a tip-off that the two train robbers who escaped capture are planning a bank job in Turin and take Eric with them to identify the two men.

With an inept police officer and Eric in pursuit of the criminals just about everything that’s possible to go wrong does so.

Real-life Minis racing up and down steps, a bus hanging off the edge of a mountain, incredible Alpine scenery – none of this is in the production but the show is packed full of great 60s hits and a lot of laughs which, let’s face it, is a fair swap!


End of 2022 to January 2023 

So much has happened  since my last post. Obviously I seem to update Facebook and other social media more than my poor website.

The Pocket Gods have been very busy finishing off with a Christmas show at The Horn in St Albans. But we now have 12 Guiness book records and our last album, 1000x30 has had more than 1m hits.

The 30 second campaign for fairer royalties for musicians really is grabbing headlines.

I have also done and continue to do dep gigs with The Midnight Rebel Band , Beaky Band and From the Ashes as well as teaching term times in schools, at my studio and for The Bucks Rock Project.

I am also in rehearsals with the very talented Frances Rodinio (Cayio) with a new acoustic folk sound with great friend Allan Burls on bass, so look out for new music coming soon.

Round up of September and early October 

September and October saw me filling in for 5 gigs with the Beaky Band. Tony Carpenter, who Beaky in Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky Mick & Tick, fronts the normally 3 piece band.

This included a trip to play in Eastbourne at the Marina Club house. This was a charity gig for Wet Wheels charity.

At the end of the month, I will be playing with David Graham, (whose band includes good friend Alan Howell) in Bristol

This is a 70s shows and all to click and tracks.

Buckets For Bongos has gone from strength ti strength. 4 Showcases and 5 care home shows took place early October with another 5 late October and 3 in November.

This really works for Dementia patients, taking them back to happier times through music and with them playing and singing along.


Drums in Schools & The Rock Project 

Hi. Sorry it has been so long since an update, but Happy New year and lets hope 2022 is a much better one.

So far for me, it has been.

On January 11th I joined 'Drums In Schools', teaching junior children in Aylesbury schools how to play drums.

Drums in Schools was founded by James Manders, a good friend and amazing guitarist, 4 years ago.

James has asked me to join his school twice before, but because of my touring commitments etc, I was not able to fully commit. When he asked me again in December 2021, I jumped at the chance.

I have also re-joined the MK Rock Project, teaching with them in Leighton Buzzard on Tuesday evenings and Buckingham on Wednesday evenings. Of course, I already work for the Bucks Rock Project in Aylesbury on Monday evenings and High Wycombe on Thursday evenings.

If you have a child who wants to learn an instrument (Vocals, Guitars, Bass Guitars, Drums or Keyboards) then The Rock Project is a great way for them to learn and interact with other like minded people.

If you want to learn in Aylesbury or High Wycombe, call Mark on 07545 828590

In Milton Keynes, Buckingham, Dunstable or Leighton Buzzard, call Chris on 07816 669659


So many shows!!! 

Sorry the site has not been updated since August, but there has been so much going on.

Theatre shows with Bella Popera (Pictures and video to follow) Miracle Cure, Pocket Gods and a few last minute dep gigs thrown into the mix.

I also started up, Buckets for Bongos, which is me going round schools, psychic and wellbeing fairs, promoting how drumming, even on a bucket, can raise your endorphin levels, therefore putting you in a happy mood.

Don't forget if you need a drummer, or Buckets for Bongos at your event, call me on 07944577004
