I am Elliott Blower - Drummer, percussionist, educator, electronic music producer and saxophonist. Although I am associated with many acts and music projects, the most established act I have the pleasure of being part of is Europe's biggest, best and longest running touring theatre tribute to Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons named 'Let's Hang On', which celebrates the very best of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.
Over recent years, I have become very familiar with the 'entertainment for hire' business working in a few acts and even managing my own act (Valley Road Acoustic Duo); working very closely with some of the biggest entertainment agencies in the UK.
Most weeks I dedicate a few hours where I can to teach new drummers how to start learning drums, intermediates on new areas of study and even more advanced drummers who wish to learn new techniques or brush up on their reading skills. You can find information on my tuition on my education page.
After picking up a set of drumsticks at the age of 11, music has consumed my life. My early years as a musician were incredibly varied, I started off playing along to the likes of AC/DC, Phil Collins, Steely Dan, Metallica and Toto to name a few.
I have found over the years that to be a successful musician in this day and age, you need to be incredibly versatile.
