I hope everyone of you is well.

Hopefully it looks like the UK is slowly coming out of the lockdown and life can start to to find a new normal.

I still feel live music and theatre shows are still a long way away from starting up just yet.

I can't believe the UK government still have not looked to bail out the UK music/theatre industry. The self employed scheme was a god send, but the next instalment is not till August! Luckily I have managed to pick up a lot of studio work and long may that continue. The Rock With The Ott clothing range has also helped. I am currently working with a local designer to make a rockier logo to emblazon the front of t-shirts.

Yesterday (Saturday 13th June) I finished 2 tracks for a solo artist and since lock down, I have recorded drums for over 20 tracks.

If you require drums, get in touch!

Hopefully when the music scene re-starts, we can all meet at a show and enjoy a drink together. Till then, stay safe.

Buckets For Bongos was founded by myself to promote the fact drumming, even on a household object like a bucket, can help raise your endorphin level, therefore making you happy.

 Let's face it, lockdown was not much fun and for entertainers.... well we somehow survived.

During this period, I looked into ways to keep entertained and to keep the niggling self doubts at bay.

And it would appear drumming is good at helping you feel good, who knew?

So, a group playing together means everyone has a great time, learns a new skill and hopefully a new friend.

The group sessions so far really have taken on a whole new level, with people who have never played percussion/drums before, suddenly realising, they have got timing and they can play along to a song and everyone leaves with a smile on their fave after initially appearing sceptical about the whole thing.

As one person told me 'So to survive lockdown, all I needed was a bucket to sit in the garden with?' yep, that's it!
