Greg Pedder

Drums, backing vocals

At 6’6″ in height you cannot possibly miss this man in a crowd or sitting behind a drumkit for that matter. Totally chilled and in the groove, he’s had a past as an established funk/jazz/soul drummer. And now he’s blended his all round funkness with a heavy sound to let it out on the drums, even if it does means kicking it onto stage.

Greg is also famous for his stick tricks that can only be seen in the bar when you are with the band after band rehearsal, but how does he do it? Well that’s his secret, and there is one way to find out, so hang out with the man that is tre cool.
