Steve Riley Drums and VocalsHello, I’m Steve and I play the drums and sing in the Bootleggers. I’ve been playing for twenty seven years and have been professional for the last fifteen.

My first good drumming job came with the Lloyd Watson Blues Band (Slide guitar for Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera on 801 live 1976). Two years after joining Lloyd I landed my first professional job playing summer seasons and clubs. Here I worked with Paul Davinci (Rubettes, Sugar Baby Love), Paul Shane (of Hi-de-hi fame!) and even The Chuckle Brothers! I also backed shows and played six nights a week for the Ice Trax Band.

I was selected from over fifty other drummers to play at the prestigious Haven talent show national finals to back the acts in 1997, 98 and 99, along with the Ice Trax Band.

Since joining the Bootleggers in 2001 I feel that I have found the perfect band for me. It’s a rarity to find a fully self-contained live act as good as this these days for a drummer like me to use my craft. The band plays many of my own musical influences so it’s always good to play gigs with like minded musicians. I think it is these musical bonds that have given the band its continuing run at the top of its profession.
