A jazz graduate the same as Bruce, his high regard is borne out by the list of artists who he works with: Bette Midler, Al Jarreau, Paula Abdul, Boz Skaggs, the B52s, Steely Dan, Jennifer Lopez and Earth, Wind and Fire

Creatively restless, he has a number of releases to his name which can be purchased from his official website. Additionally, Sonny holds drum clinics to encourage today’s up-and-coming musicians to excel in their chosen field.

Sonny signed up to the Noisemakers in 2002, and remains the most recent addition fo the band. With no rehearsal whatsoever, Sonny settled straight into the live performances. The nature of Bruce’s spontaneous shows demands a lot from the band, and to this day Sonny will drive songs that have not been played for years.

His on-stage humour with JV (in particular) is a regular feature of each show.
