Chris Hughes

Chris has played the drums since seeing Ringo Starr playing in the early 60s.

His playing is no frills and steeped in the blues.

He has appeared at Colne, Burnley and Maryport festivals and has been the driving force for the Power 3, The Upsetters, The Extras, Off the Rails and Soul Society.

Chris intends to hit the ground running with his blend of power and precision together with tasteful groove playing.


Chris plays Yamaha Recording custom drums and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum with Shure mikes and a mixture of Zildjian, Paiste and UFIP cymbals
