Bands and Groups
Music For Animations
I have performed with countless bands and groups over the years, most notably for the last 25 years as a vocalist with the 50's style doo-wop group The Metrotones. The Mets began as an acappella vocal group creating jingles for London's Capital Gold and GLR radio stations. Once a band was added we performed all over Europe, appearing on TV, radio and film as well as on a number of recordings. I also toured as a singer with the Rock 'n' Roll theatre show "American Pie". As a drummer, I have played for Sophie Garner and her Swing Kings, The Roomates, Al Catraz and the Chain Gang, The Jay Harley Band and The Ray Burns Trio. I have performed as a vocalist and/or drummer behind a number of visiting American doo-wop artistes from the 50's and 60's. More recently I have begun playing bass and singing with a new Metrotones spin-off 4-piece group called Dapper Joe (https://www.facebook.com/Dapper-Joe-1604442882922144/).

Many of my animations require background music or songs and I have written, produced and performed lots of musical pieces in a variety of styles. You can hear some of them in my eCards at http://www.123greetings.com/profile/daftoons/.
If you need music for your project, I would be happy to discuss your ideas.
