Michael has toured the UK with various high profile bands and artist such as Scouting for Girls, Lawson, Charli XCX and The Saturdays playing at many venues and festivals.

Michael grew up listening to artists such as Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond. Together with iconic drumming from Ronnie Tutt, Michael is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the show and given the chance to recreate some of Neil Diamond’s classic songs live.
“What I like about Neil Diamond’s music is the mixture of different styles and genres. One minute you can be playing country and the next you’re playing a big gospel number and then onto a pop/ rock style. As a drummer this is exciting and really pushes your ability.”
