About Steve Jones

Steve hails from Gloucester, UK, but is originally from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.
He started playing the drums at the age of 5 after being inspired by a 45 record of Cozy Powell which he played over & over again. By the age of 9 he had joined his first brass band in the Forest of Dean, this was the first of three bands that Steve played with, the most prestigious being the Flowers Band where he has been principal percussionist for many years.

Performing in brass ensembles from an early age has given Steve experience in playing various styles of music and also the opportunity to perform at many prestigious venues such as London's Royal Albert Hall and Symphony Hall in Birmingham to name but a few. Steve has played in many countries throughout the world including, Thailand, USA, France, Belgium, Holland and Australia.

He has performed with many rock bands, jazz bands and orchestras and recorded countless times for the BBC. In 2000, he provided his percussion expertise for electronica duo 'Goldfrapp' on their Mercury Music Prize nominated debut album 'Felt Mountain'.

Steve has been teaching drums and percussion for over fifteen years and tutoring for the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire Music Services since 2004. He covers all aspects of drumming from the gripping of the sticks to the reading of music and much more and is equipped with quality equipment in a purpose built practice room in Gloucester.
