A GORLESTON businessman is hosting a performance by one of the world's greatest drummers next week.

Acclaimed Toto drummer Simon Philips showcases his skills on the skins at the Waterfront, Norwich on Monday.

Anglia Drum Centre owner Jason Keyte arranged the show - one of just three UK appearances this year by the acclaimed musician.

In an illustrious career he has toured with a host of bands and artists including Mick Jagger, The Who, Roxy Music, Robert Palmer and Dave Gilmour.

Jason said: “I was really pleased to secure the clinic with Simon as East Anglia is often overlooked when it comes to these types of events.

“The clinic gives everyone in the area the chance to pick the brain and learn some great tips from such a drum master with so many years of professional experience.”

The performance starts 7.30pm and tickets £10 are available at available at www.ueaticketbookings.co.uk, on 01603 508050 or from Anglia Drum Centre, Lower Cliff Road, Gorleston.
