John Coleman [ UK ]
John is a UK based Drummer and Producer, mainly specialising in Roots music - Rock & Roll, Swing, Blues, Country and Big Band whilst also, occasionally, Pop. He is the permanent drummer with Internationally acclaimed Rock & Roll and Doowop band, The Class of ’58.
The son of two professional musicians, music was always in his blood and so it was no surprise when he came home from school, aged 5 and said he wanted to play the drums! After honing his skills on a cardboard box kit and, a few months later his first kit, he started performing on the road aged 8; alongside his school work of course!
John has grown into one of his genre’s most respected musicians and has earned touring credits with a number of the original recording stars of the 1950’s, when they’ve undertaken European tours.
“I fell in love with Murat Diril Cymbals whilst playing some that were provided for me at a festival in Europe. After the first hit, I knew they were unlike anything I’d played before and I had to get on board! The Company is not just a company but a family which, for me, makes all the difference”.
