MICK HOLLOWAY 

drums / keys / tech

Born in London, Mick has been playing drums for over 45 years. He has a great love of classic vintage kits, especially Hayman, Ludwig and Gretsch. Mick is a very forceful and musical drummer and provides a great balance of tight playing when required and a looser jazzier feel when the band is able to stretch out on the more jam-based sections. Mick is also responsible for producing and playing various sound effects and some keyboards during the live show.
