Simon Greenhill (Daddy Funk) has been playing drums for as long as he can remember...

Well OK - he’s a drummer, but I have it on reliable authority that the boy's had rhythm since he was a baby, starting to play seriously from the age of 11.

Daddy Funk takes inspiration from many and all genres but when it comes to drummers he was most fundamentally inspired in his early playing career by Buddy Rich, John Bonham, Stuart Copeland, Neil Peart, Steve Jansen, Peter Erskine and Omar Hakim.

Signed with two bands ‘Funkabubble’ and ‘Inner Rhythm’ he has toured extensively and has made hitting those skins a full time, paid job for many years. After the rose-tinted glow of living on the road had long faded, but the passion and excitement DF felt for the instrument still remained. Daddy Funk drum teaching was born in 1993.

In 2001 Daddy Funk put his money where his mouth was and invested in a fully bespoke, custom built OCDP (Orange County Drum & Percussion) kit. Whilst still using this kit for performance and recording it is primarily the teaching kit. You, yes you can play it too!

Daddy Funk received his endorsement as an educator by Yamaha Drums and Zildjian Cymbals in Oct 2005 which was shortly followed by the endorsement also as an educator by Trueline Sticks (Tribal Assault) in 2006.

As of 30th September 2015, Daddy Funk Drums is now endorsed by Istanbul Agop Cymbals & Los Cabos Drumsticks.
