Public liability insurance
London- and Oxford-based jazz trumpeter and music person. Available for classical, jazz, pop, and "other". Festival-friendly.

I'm a trumpet player based in Oxford, and sometimes London. I currently play with Mama Brass, a brass funk band, and the Thames Jazz Collective, which is a group of jazz musicians working in Oxford and London. I also perform with Temple Funk Collective and Dutty Moonshine Big Band, and recently recorded Dutty's debut album "Most Wanted" (2017). I've done a huge variety of performance and recording, including but not limit to jazz orchestras and big bands, dirty brass bands, music for improvised comedy, small group jazz, chinese orchestra, symphony orchestra, chamber ensemble, music for theatre. I also have and can play to DJ. I'm happy learning tunes by ear and using sheet music. Improvisation is not a problem. My current main bands are based in Bristol, Oxford, and London, and play all over the country and sometimes abroad, so I'm happy to travel. I currently live in Oxford. Aside from trumpet, I enjoy unusual instruments. I like playing kalimba.

The Thames Jazz Collective played a brilliant set for our college summer garden party. They really set the mood! We would highly recommend them.

Michael knows his stuff - very easy to work with and a consummate professional. His band really made our wedding.

In my experience, Michael is up for almost anything. Including international gigs.
