Trombone

The Band

Simon learned to play Trombone as a direct result of watching internationally renouned bass player Laurence Cottle playing trombone in the Porthcawl Pavilion (it was a very long time ago).

He was taught trombone in school and played in the West Glamorgan Youth Brass Band and Orchestra.

Simon was contacted by the well known Gwyn Lewis of Swansea's Speakeasy Jazz Band after the local paper ran a story about a band that Simon was part of in school, and that is where he began his jazz career.

Simon has been with the Liberty Street Jazz Band for almost 20 years now, and is still considered to be "the baby of the band" !!
