Tracey is hoping to go along to a lot more local gigs this year, naming her ambition as just one a week – an easy mission surely?

He has been a performing drummer for around eight years, attending both Access To Music and British Academy of Modern Music, where he was part of many bands and ensembles.
Now at Staffordshire University, he aims to persevere with both his writing skills, and radio broadcasting techniques. He loves going to gigs and takes full advantage of being directly honest in all of his gig reviews.
When not working towards his degree, he is eagerly searching for a serious band that wants to perform, write and record regularly – rock n’ roll all the way!
