About Ian

Whatever the gig, Ian's professional performance and attitude are what you need, along with the great feel only created by a live drummer!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am a professional drummer and percussionist based in the South West. Starting my musical life at the tender age of 3, I have many years of playing experience under my sticks. During my education it became clear that making music was my passion. I’m well versed in Jazz, Funk, Latin, Orchestral, Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock and many other styles of music. Jazz gives me a well-trained ear and ability to improvise, whilst my classical training means I am a solid reader who is used to working with an MD. I’m used to depping with bands and working with new musicians, always striving to be friendly and professional whilst getting the job done to the best of my abilities. Outside of music, my other interests include computers and motorsport. I can program software and am fluent in computer music software such as Pro Tools, Presonus Studio One and Sibeilus as well as the current version of Microsoft Office. I also do web design and graphics, and enjoy watching F1, BTCC and whatever other forms of motor sports I can find. I hold a full clean UK drivers licence.

Ian's brush work is just incredible and his well thought out and dynamic solos are equally a joy to watch. Super reliable and easy to work with - I miss our phat n funky jams!

I needed a drummer for a web-based video project and was lucky enough to have Ian Evans recommended to me. Not only is he a brilliantly talented musician, but he has proved to be completely reliable and dependable. I needed a large amount of background material in the form of text and music scores and he has been extremely helpful and prompt in supplying it
