Jamie left Toowoomba in 2014 to join The Cory Band in Wales as a percussionist. He spent two years with them and then joined the British Army in 2016.
He played all over the UK and Europe with The Cory Band, and played on several of their CD's. They toured the USA in 2016 and won all major competitions during his time - the National Championships of Great Britain, The British Open, Brass in Concert and the European Championships.
He is now a full time musician with the British army, and is in the British Army Band Tidworth, based in the west of England.
This month Jamie was part of the combined British Army Band which has just finished touring the USA. The band consisted of all the best musicians from the various Army brass bands in the UK.
The Musical Director for the tour was Captain Brenden Wheeler who hails from Cairns in Queensland. Brenden started his brass band career in Cairns and has been in the British Army for many years.
Well done to both of our local boys leading the way in the UK. We are very proud of you both.
