We call him C.L.F. because he is a cheeky little f#@ker. Veteran of over 200 gigs on the Isle of Man. CLF first started playing the drums at the age of 13. His first gigging band was formed at Ballakermeen High School  called The Chilly Willies, who thankfully changed their name to Module CD5 . 


He then joined “Anomaly” and played such venues as The Cornerhouse, The IOM College, and Ballabeg village hall. He was invited to join “Tub” and got to play in a covers band, playing such haunts as The Office, BBB and The Creek. Once Tub were done, he joined back up with Nick  to form Cactus Bite, and more recently Seversyn, where they have played at Amber and BBB a number of times. He played for Catch 22 for a few years, before they split.


In his spare time, he will guest for The Shedmen, whenever his mentor, Sean is unavailable. Dan has played several gigs with The Sheds over the years, including Bushy’s Beer Tent ,The  Beach Port Erin, The Creek,  Jaks and latterly Bushy’s TT Village.
