Mike is a long time musical compatriot of Damo's and Neil's having worked with them for over a decade in their blues band that toured across the UK, where many Clapton songs were performed over the time they worked together.

Mike is a special talent on bass, He started out as a classically trained musician, playing the piano from 6 years old and after getting hooked onto music that was very un-classical in nature, he was then bought his first bass guitar on his 14th birthday. 

He never looked back, going on to study electric bass at the BIMM, graduating with an undergraduate music degree from the University of Sussex, and being awarded a two year scholarship to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. 

Mike has experience (and a love) of many musical genres, having played professionally in a wide variety of bands, from sessions, to functions, to originals bands. He also filled the electric bass seat, and also been the Musical Director for, the University of Sussex Big Band, and has played the Montreux Jazz Festival twice. 

We are so thrilled that Mike is once again holding down the low end with Damo & the Dominos, he is a wonderful addition to the band. We are so lucky to bring his talents to you in this band and the contribution he will make to making us sound absolutely amazing for all of you!! The pocket will be tight!!
