Roy has been involved in music for longer than he cares to remember, playing genres from Swing Bands to full on Rock.

Many years were spent as a drummer, but in the late 1990’s he has established himself on guitar and has performed all over the UK in various covers bands. Equally at home either on stage or in the recording studio, Roy always gets a ‘BUZZ’ from entertaining people.
