"As far as ability goes, you don't find them more talented than Jon. He does things on a drum kit you didn't think were even possible. He learns songs very quickly and is extremely reliable. Nicest guy ever too, which goes a long way in this business"

Joe Lazarus - Session drummer (Inheaven, Circa Waves,Voodoo Six)

We were on UK tour when disaster struck - our drummer had some bad family news and needed to stay at home. As a band we decided to still make our way to the venue and on the way, make a decision on what we would do. In this time Jon got in contact and said he would drum for us. This alone is a very bold move as he didn’t know the songs and only had about 4 hours to learn them! The rest they say is history. Jon took to the stool like the professional he is and played a blinding SKAM set. Jon has the ability to learn songs quickly and correctly; the attention to detail was outstanding. The whole experience was fantastic as Jon came into the band like he had always been there, he certainly save the day for all the travelling SKAM Massive!

Matt & Steve, SKAM

"I first met and played with Jon at a young age and he really set the bar for the next drummers I played with - very high! If you're looking for a great drummer able to play a variety of styles, a reliable and fun guy to be around, then he is your guy"
