Nigel started playing a brass instrument aged 8 with the Salvation Army in Kettering. He played in the county Youth Brass Band under the directorship of John Berryman, joining the GUS Band in January of 1990.
He is married with two children, one of whom has also started to learn to play the trombone as he wants to replace him when he is older!
Nigel is "one of the few members of the band who is just happy to get on with things and never moans".
