So after several tentative weeks of being helped out by a number of interim and dept drummers, we are happy to be able to announce that we now have a new band member on drums; Keith Goodey...
Keith recently relocated to the South West from North London and has many years of experience playing drums with a number of different bands over the years.
We welcome Keith as a permanent member of The Rhythm Collective and very much look forward to playing together in the future.
After playing drums with the Rhythm Collective for over 2 years, Ivor Edwards has now relocated to London to further his career in photography. So regrettably he will no longer be able to continue his role as our esteemed drummer. We very much enjoyed Ivor’s company on all our adventures and wish him all the very best for the future.
Our next gig will be at The King William Inn, in Glastonbury, on 16th April from 9pm. Talk about a baptism of fire. "Bring it on!" says Keith.
Our first gig of 2016 is coming up on Friday 19th February at The Street Inn, in Street. Unfortunately our regular drummer Ivor is unavailable, so we have Rhys Moreby taking his place for this and also for our following gig - on Saturday 5th March at the Rifleman’s Arms in Glastonbury.
Rhys is a very experienced and accomplished drummer, playing in several bands in the Somerset area including ‘Brew’ and ‘Bullet Train’, so we are very much looking forward to playing with him.
Also we have added several new songs to our set, so we are looking forward to airing these for the first time very soon. Hope to see you at the Street Inn on Friday night from about 9pm.
Just a quick update following our recent Halloween gig at the Street Inn, in Street on Saturday 31 October. Some amazing costumes and the pub looked fantastic. Big thanks to all the bar staff for such a fun night.

Special thanks goes out to Ross for doing such a sterling job on the drums on the night, in place of Ivor who unfortunately is out of action for the foreseeable future due to a bad back. Hope we'll see you back soon Ivor.
