Dante Director Bangs The Drum

Dante Group Director Neil Corney has had a life long passion for music and specifically playing drums.

Not wanting to give his age, he has played the drums for over 40 years, starting in various school bands and local bands, then on to Club bands and residencies in Social Clubs.

After stepping away from performing to concentrate on Family and Career he caught the bug again and decided to pick the sticks up again 5 years ago, and put together a band based in the North East called Sneaky Blinders.

“Getting back into drumming and performing with a great bunch of friends has provided a great escape from the pressures of work and every day life. Among other things it has helped me shed a little weight, and improved my fitness” Neil said.

The band have a very busy diary throughout 2023, and have built up a great following around the local pub and club scene, and have played a number of festivals.

“All members in the band Dionne – vocals, Maggie – keyboards, Dave – guitar, Mike – Bass and myself have lots of past experience and are enjoying the Sneaky Blinder experience, and wives and partners have become great supporters of the band”

You can follow the band on Facebook where you will find lots of information and Videos of the guys and catch them live if they are playing nearby. Don’t forget to give them a like.
