Notes:

Progressive funk, jazz drummer jiffy Griffiths started at an early age, receiving his first drum kit at the age of 9 and growing up listening to the likes of Rush, Ray Charles, The Who and Dream Theatre, which to date has influenced his unique style of playing and the start of what is known as the ‘Kinky Wizzards’ an up and coming ‘Bass and Drum duo’ accompanied by his brother.

Self taught Jiffy’s early years involved drumming as part of an orchestra which was solely rudimental ‘Snare Drum’ based, with tours and performances all over the UK. He was then approached to join a jazz band when he turned 14 which influenced his own technique and the ‘feel’ that really inspires his audiences.
His fresh approach to drumming has lead to being approached by Cardiff’s leading Drum shop to host drum clinics to share his extraordinary abilities of drumming. This has opened doors to other clinics and session work with leading names in the industry. His drum and bass duo are becoming internationally recognized for their innovative sounds and have already recorded a ‘Drum and Bass’ album with a top producer who has worked for artists such as Paul Weller.
His creative playing and open mind has allowed him to explore all styles of music and translates it into ‘drumming melody’, he is able to teach various style’s from Rock, Jazz, Funk genre’s to Latin Samba’s and will adapt to the students requirements.
