About Db_Franz

For videos check out my TikTok & Instagram - Db_franz . I am a dynamic drummer based in the UK.

Professional drummer based in the UK with 10+ years experience and still learning new things on the way. Drumming is not only a passion of mine but a lifestyle. I have a few highlights within my years, but my favourites have been working with the best, well known drill music group ‘Hope Dealers’ and Davido, one of the most influential Afrobeat musicians globally. I am certain I will become the most impactful musician within the UK and abroad.

Hiring Francis for my private event was an absolute jackpot. His energy lit the whole room up!! He was only booked for two hours but I had to extend his booking as everyone loved his performances so much. Very talented.

I was searching for a long time for a very good drummer and stumbled across Francis’ page. Booking him was the best decision hands on heart. Such an amazing and talented guy. I flew him over to the states and everyone was impressed by his talent.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Majority of my feedback is my energy and bringing the crowd alive! This is not only a job for me but my passion and I strive to always perform to the best ability.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in venues with capacities reaching 4,000 people. The biggest venue I have performed in is the 02 with Davido.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I am very open to different types of music / genres. Every artist is different and with difference comes uniqueness. I cannot pick!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have performed at a concert in the 02 with the pool or Afro beats star Davido. I aided his band in the concert and it was an unforgettable experience.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional price.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to talk through any preferences and make sure we find what works best for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument (s) to play acoustically.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in the song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like to be performed, that is perfectly fine, There is an additional fee for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
