Born in County Durham, Neil has always had a love of music. From his early teens Northern Soul was Neil’s passion, he and his mates attending Northern Soul allnighters across the UK. His favourite place to dance was Wigan Casino which he went to as much as possible.
This passion stayed with him during almost 30 years military service in the British Army and the Canadian Military.
Neil retired from the military in 2009 and he and his wife Karon, moved to Spain in 2017.
