Welcome.

(REASONABLY) CURRENT NEWS:

Hello friends!

It's been a fantastic 2013 and already 2014 is looking to be busy and full of musical travel & adventure!

I'm thrilled to have worked with such a talented and diverse group of artists and am always grateful to be included on Vancouver's list of impressive drummers. I'm just off to Australia with CR Avery & The Sojourners for three weeks - wish me luck!

This year was my busiest ever, and although frantic, i had great experiences on the road with my pals Barney Bentall, Aaron Pritchett, Daniel Wesley, The Sojourners, and The Grand Cariboo Opry.

In the studio, I was part of so many special recordings. Some stand outs include: Jim Byrnes, Colleen Rennison (from No Sinner), Steve Dawson, The Sojourners, Kat Danser, Shari Ulrich, Will Stroet, Andy Warren, Simon Kendall, Mark Petersen, Sister Says, The Tree Shepherds, Kevin Coles, Steven Spender, Michael Angell, Jayden Holman, Amanda Jean, Brayden Lee, Me And Mae, Dave Hadgkiss, Jen Lauren, and Ian MacIntosh.

This year, the Grand Cariboo Opry had another sold out show at the Vogue Theatre and helped raise $45,000 for the Potluck Society!

Thank you to Yamaha Drums (and Sean Browne especially) for the unbelievable Club Customs! These drums have changed the way I play. Happy New Year!

Our most successful Grand Cariboo Opry yet, translated into the band being able to feed 500+ needy folks in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, from the Potluck Society kitchen.

Geoff is stoked to have played on Barney Bentall's new record "Flesh and Bone":

Barney

"Flesh & Bone is haunting yet beautiful with vocals
that are pure, truthful and full of emotion.
Bentall’s lyrics and melodies marry well together,
woven with a storytelling quality that transcends generations."

" ...one of the things about Geoff Hicks' drumming that has always impressed me, is that he really listens to the song and is sensitive to the dynamics and nuances that it requires at any given moment."
