The Searchers, 2023 Tour

Statement released on Thursday 7th October 2021.


You've probably now heard that John, Frank & Spencer are bringing The Searchers back for a solo tour in 2023.

I have had the honour of being a custodian of the Searchers drum throne for over 9 years & it was a wonderful experience, one I will never forget.

I was informed on Friday 1st October 2021, that I would not be involved in the 2023 tour, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank the band, & most importantly, you, the fans, for the spectacular memories. We play for you, to bring you the sounds that you love, & the music you hold so dear to your heart.

Enjoy the shows & thank you for making me so welcome & for taking me into your hearts & homes.

Lots of love.

Scott Ottaway.

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!
