Drummer - Musical Director - Composer - Producer

Hi there and thanks for checking in!

I hope all is good with you.

So I finally got around to putting something together for the web...Some info about me me me and my various shenanigans.

Hopefully these pages will tell what you need to know, if not, please get in touch and I’ll try to help.

So here goes... I’ll keep it as brief as poss:

Professional since...forever!

Career to date has been extremely varied. I’ve been very fortunate to have worked in many different musical roles.

I guess I’ve been in just about every scenario in the business, I’ve loved every minute.

Toured world wide, over 25 years...Ouch!

Headlined just about every major European festival at somepoint or other.

Lot’s of “Live” T.V. & Theatre experience (I’m not going to waste your time with the “Miming” CV)

Lots of recording. Info here:  http://www.johntonks.com/John_Tonks/Musician-Drummer.html

Recently my career swings, literally moment to moment, between:

  1.     Composer, Producer & Remixer.

  2.     Musical-Director, Consultant & Fixer.

  3.     Drummer & Programmer.

  4.     Occasionally Physco-Therapist and Hostage Negotiator.

All this in a wide range of genres and with many varied artists.

From Progressive Rock to Progressive House...I've been very lucky!!

There are more detailed listings and information under each tab at the top of the page..

but here’s a selection of some of my musical associations thus far:

Alfie Boe, Little Mix, Neneh Cherry, Amandine Bourgeois, Jess Mills, Chris DeBurgh, The Streets, Gabriella Cilmi
Paul Oakenfold, Tricky, Duran Duran, Lamb, Thea Gilmore, Fish, Stina Nordenstam, Lemonjelly, Steve Winwood, Sugababes, CirKus, Thunder etc etc...

As I mentioned, there’s a lot going on, so I figure I’d create a page for each area.

So, please check the tabs at the top of the page for more info regarding these activities, click HERE

Many thanks. Take care. Tonksy
