Lukas Drinkwater

 

Playing gigs since the age of 14, first as a duo with Jake Ashworth-Jones (son of esteemed folk veteran Alun Ashworth-Jones), then as singer/guitarist with the Punk band 'Gunbunny'. By 16 I had joined Cornish legends' Rock & Roll band 'The Very Strangers'.

 

I moved full-time on to bass with the funk/fusion quartet 'Bo Excursion' (with the Legendary Barnaby Ray on drums)

 

I joined the People's String Foundation at the inception of their touring band in 2009 and toured extensively with them, playing venues and festivals throughout the UK.

I joined the 3 Daft Monkeys in 2011 and went full-time with them for the last year and a half, this has taken me all over Europe playing to some amazing audiences, headlining festivals and playing in intimate venues alike.

 

I am now returning to singing and playing solo as well as continuing with the 3 Daft Monkeys, and in my new Exeter-based projects The Big V & The Little V (the smaller acoustic side project), both produced by Phil Johnstone (Robert Plant, The Levellers ..).

 

I also continue to session on electric and double bass for many jazz outfits around the UK, this has been a staple of mine for both my musical learning and my soul as there's so much to be gained from letting rip with a bunch of virtuoso jazzers.

This sees me appearing at jazz clubs and jazz festivals around the country, and there's promise of more foreign excursions next year with the 'Dart Valley Stompers'.
