My Background...


Since the early 1990s I have played/toured/recorded with Courtney Pine, Ronnie Laws, Jean Toussaint, Brian Auger, Mother Earth and Corduroy and many other groups.  Have toured Japan, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, West Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Columbia, Australia, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Russia, Canada and many other countries.

My wide and diverse experiences with jazz, pop and world music elements has created a unique and personal style and approach to my percussion work.

I have a wide range of teaching experiences and work regularly with schools, colleges, special needs groups, adult education centres, psychiatric hospitals, prisons as well as team building workshops within the corporate business world.  I have an academic background in psychology and the social sciences, professional teaching qualifications, and registration with the Child Protection Register (CPR).  I am also employed as a professional alterative therapist (Website donaldgamble.co.uk).

I reside in London and continue to gig, record and teach regularly in the UK and Europe.
