GROUP Colin James Band, Steve Dawson, Ridley Bent
Geoff Hicks is an earthy organic drummer along the lines of Levon Helm, Steve Jordan, and Steve Ferrone. Driven by the song, not the ego, Geoff constantly strives for a strong groove-orientation.
Since 1995, Geoff has been a busy freelance drummer, touring and recording with Harry Manx, Jim Byrnes, Craig Northey (The Odds, Colin James), Jesse Valenzuela (Gin Blossoms), Steve Dawson, The Sojourners, Coco Love Alcorn, The Modelos, Wyckham Porteous, Steven Drake, Ndidi Onukwulu, Bob Kemmis, Ridley Bent, Dustin & Barney Bentall, Cameron Latimer, and the list goes on...
For the past two years Geoff has been performing with Canadian blues legend Colin James. The band has toured Europe, playing festivals from Spain to Switzerland, sharing the stage with the likes of Little Richard and Los Lobos. The band completed a successful tour of Canada in 2006 in support of Colin's C.D., "Limelight", selling out rooms like Toronto's venerable Massey Hall.
