Neil has been playing bass primarily with his own cover band 'Sarenda' for the last 10 years, but now enjoys session gigs with some of Queensland's most popular acts. Neil also spent over 2 years writing, recording and performing in the original band 'The Great Disruption' which played many shows and recorded the EP 'Oxytocin'. With his vast 80's and 90's rock foundations, Neil consistently lays down solid grooves with rich fat bass tones. Neil has an astute ear for locking in with great drummers, which creates a lusty rhythm section to intensify any stage presence.
