Principal Percussion & Band Manager

John Mallinson

John is like the ravens at the tower of London – everything would fall apart without him. He is also the funkiest drummer in the world.




Harry Lewis

The youngest player in the band – Harry is a very talented and cool young dude.

Harry fact: I can name match (most) countries to their flag!


Jonathan Fennell

Another exemplary bandsman, Jonny has “been around” the band over the years. Having done stints on tenor horn and E flat bass, he now shows considerable flair on tuned percussion. He’s a proper rhythm section man!



Stephanie_Payne Percussion

Steph Payne

The bands’ most recent percussion addition, Steph really knows her way around a xylophone but is more than a match for our other shed builders on any drum really.








Matt Bamforth

Matt is really good at hitting things. He destroyed an entire set of tubular bells before our nationals performance in 2017. He’s a pretty bad driver though.
