Ger is very well known and respected in Irish session & rock drumming circles with his hard-hitting style and precision playing, but it is his versatility that gets him such a wide spectrum of work at home and abroad.

He has been involved in the Irish music scene for the past twenty years, and was a founding member of several well respected Irish bands, including Azure Days, The Floors, Skindive, and Lluther, and has recorded and toured with all of them.

In the 90’s Ger began to get asked to do more live session work and toured Europe with Nills Lofgren (E Street Band) & The Samuel Eddy Band. He has also been a frequent performer on Irish Television, and was a regular in the “Late Late Show” house band for ten years, and has also appeared on various other studio and live shows for Irish TV.

In 2008 Ger began performing with Dolores O’Riordan (Cranberries), and recorded drums for her solo album No Baggage, which was released worldwide that year. He has also recently recorded albums with X Factor finalist Roberta Howett and Irish singer/songwriter Rob Burke.

In 2010 Ger played percussion with Snow Patrol, performing with the band at the Natura Nos Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Ger is also a regular in some of Irelands premier corporate entertainment bands, playing alongside some of the country’s top musicians.
