Derek is known as a creative and thoughtful interpreter.
Highlights of his career include performances with Freddy Cole, and 70′s television great John Davidson. This path also led to a five year run with Carnival Cruise Lines where he cut his teeth nightly with some of the world’s finest musicians.
Derek calls KW home and is a staple in the roster of returning talent to Waterloo’s Jazz Room.

He has worked in many large and small ensemble settings, spanning Latin, classical, rock, and jazz. His studies at Humber College under the tutelage of Canadian jazz giants Ron Collier and Pat Labarbara in the late 80’s were very formative. He continues to make music with many of the region’s finest musicians; besides the NVJQ, which he co-founded, he currently plays with the KW Big Band Theory, a 17-piece swinging big band and Farmington State an old time country band. As well, he was the principle percussionist for many years with the former Waterloo Stage Theatre and remains involved with the Kiwanis Music Festival for percussion.
