On Drums & Backing Vocals - Mick 'The Sticks' Purves

A co-founder of The Suger Bs, Mick is a rockin' percussionist with bags of experience. He began gigging in the mid eighties and is a familiar and well-known figure in the band scene of his Hartlepool hometown. Mick's drumming is solid and reliable, if only the same could be said of his drum kit! (only kidding).

He is a special aficionado of the British blues scene, bands such as Cream, Fleetwood Mac, The Pretty Things, Yardbirds, and Taste have provided his influences. Mick deserves credit for getting the band together, and keeping things rolling along with his bags of enthusiasm. He is the band's official archivist and has recordings and photos from way back.

Mick always looks shagged out on stage, and he mostly is.

In addition to being the backbone of The Sugar Bs, Mick plays washboard and kazoo in The Auld Suitcase Band.

Previous Bands Include:Preacher & The Revolvers.
