Derrick McKenzie Live Show at drop
(Drummer of Jamiroquai)
This is the story of Derrick McKenzie, the legendary drummer of Jamiroquai! Derrick started drumming in the 1960s, at the age of six! At the age of ten, inspired by a friend playing in a reggae band, he decided to go out and play his own gigs and persuaded his mum that he should hire a drum kit. By fourteen Derrick joined his friend Toyin's band working with artists he could one dream of.
In the late 1980s Derrick first joined a jazz funk outfit called Tranzeyance, then later another band called Candyland while still working at Marks & Spencer to make ends meet. Candyland got signed by Fiction Records for a few years and released an album until they got dropped. He then joined Urban Species, a rap outfit from North London. They toured Europe extensively, including Japan.
In 1993 Derrick was asked if he wanted to audition for a band called Jamiroquai. Derrick hadn’t even heard of them at the time! So he did his two long auditions… and the rest lovely people, is history!!!!!
