Andy Clifton


Andy began playing drums in 1982 after seeing the great Eric Delaney play at The Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Shortly afterwards he joined my first band with some school friends. By the age of 12 he was regularly gigging and at the same time began playing drums and percussion for local amateur dramatics productions. By the age of 15 Andy played in a lot of great venues including BBC TV Centre, The Empire Ballroom Leicester Square ( as part of the Soho Jazz Festival ) and the Pizza Express chain of jazz clubs in London. Over the next few years, Andy played in as many bands and different styles as possible and progressed from amateur to professional engagements. Over the years Andy has performed in numerous bands / shows and have backed many “named” artists in theatre / cabaret / gig situations, both in the UK and abroad.
