Dominic is a session trumpet player based in London. After studying for a short time at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester in the late 80’s/ early 90’s Dominic began touring with the likes of US3, The James Taylor Quartet, Incognito, The Brand New Heavies, The Mavericks, Katie Melua and many more.
Dominic has a substantial discography which includes Brass section arrangements written and recorded for the likes of Groove Armada (Superstylin’). Dominic has played on some of the biggest albums of the last few years- Duffy (Rockferry), Paloma Faith (Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful), Beverly Knight (Affirmation), James Morrison (Songs For You, Truths For Me) , Katie Melua (Piece By Piece), Moloko (Statues), Gorillaz (Gorillaz) and the recent Helping Haiti Single ‘Everybody Hurts’.
An avid collector of vinyl for many years, Dj Deirdre will be delving into his extensive dusty crates & picking out the best in Soul, Funk, Blaxploitation, Porno, Disco, Psychedelia, Breaks, Beats & Samples with everything in between including the wacky, the tacky, & the just plain weird. If it’s groovy & was recorded between 1967 & 1983 then it could well be played on the show. From the super rare to the charity shop bargains, every one’s a winner…
Plus there’ll be guests popping in from time to time to share their own fav’s & to maybe sing a song or two.
