Band Info

Barry Crickmore – Drums. My initiation into jazz was at school in 1957 on hearing Ken Colyer’s Maryland and The World is Waiting for the Sunrise. A combination of Colin Bowden’s driving drumming and watching the drummers in local bands, encouraged me to take up the drums. I joined several bands, which never really got going, and about five years in the 1970’s gave up because of the lack of opportunities. Eventually I joined the Easy Street Boulevard Jazzmen, led by John Bright, a fine banjo player. In the 90’s I started to play with the Liberty Hall Stompers, a South Essex band, led by Leo Davis, which included banjoist Ian Grant. Ian leads the Superior Brass Band on bass drum, with me on snare drum; the different disciplines of a parade band makes a nice change. In 1997 I had a phone call from Robin Burgess asking me if I could help out at Lodden in Norfolk and after a few weeks was invited to join Redbeans ‘n’ Rice permanently.
