After graduating in performance and composition from the Coventry School of Music in the UK, Geoff kicked off his professional career playing sax for Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band.
Shortly after, Geoff became a founding member of EMI recording artists Dexy’s Midnight Runners. During this time he was responsible for the horn arrangements that gave Dexy’s their signature sound. Their debut album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels became a hit, spawning 3 UK top 20 singles, including the No. 1 Geno. The album was re-released for the third time in 2010, still to rave reviews.
After parting with Dexys, Geoff went on to form The Bureau. With hits in Australia and Canada, they toured the UK and USA with The Pretenders. The Bureau’s self titled album was remastered and re-released by WEA in 2005. In 1984, Geoff became a member of the TKO Horns, touring and recording Punch the Clock with Elvis Costello and the Attractions.
