Gig Report: Mt Buller

Last weekend I had the privilege of performing with the D²Drumline crew at Mt Buller in the Victorian Alps. My role as Musical Director means I don’t often get to perform with the group these days, however this one was an opportunity I could pass up!

Ford Focus Commercial

Earlier this week I was invited to fill the role of Musical Director for the 2015 Ford Focus commercial. This was a monster job which involved getting 38 drummers to play in unison to Sarah Blasko’s “I Awake” in a very large warehouse. Now, we all know that getting 38 drummers to play together is a tough job at the… Read more →
