I was asked to perform and play bass alongside the great Oli Rockberger for a specialist BIMM London masterclass. Oli has worked with John Mayer and Gloria Gaynor, plus others and it was a real joy to perform with him.

His new album comes out this year and I encourage you to get it because the songs on there are seriously kickin’!

It was a superb opportunity, one to remember. A good example of how session-ing really works.

Thanks Oli!
