  • Outstanding professional drummer' would be under selling her!! There are not enough words to describe Ellie's level, we thought our drummer was amazing then Ellie came along and raised the bar so high I don't think we'll find a replacement that will be good enough anymore! Seriously, if you need a professional, dependable and down to earth drummer to cover your needs then you should definitely get in touch, don't take too long though because Ellie is definitely going places!!!
