Hooray for Rocky

David 'Rocky' Rochford is a sometime rock and blues drummer who’s had this abiding fantasy: he’d walk into a bar to see a band, only for the frontman to ask ‘is there a drummer in the house?’ and for him to step up and save the day. His dream came true last night at the Louis Marchesi when, after our first set, our drummer Paul - who’d been feeling unwell all evening - had to step down. Rocky had just popped in to the Louis for a quick drink with friends when he got the call, and stayed to complete the gig. Thanks Rocky! And by the way, Paul is on the mend.

Everyone in the D. C. Wilson Band wishes you a peaceful and joyful Christmas and we look forward to a rockin’ 2019. We kick off at the Walnut Tree Shades on 5 January.
