Duncan started playing with the youth band when he was 14 years old and under Derek's guidance he quickly progressed into the senior band. Duncan has been having a break from banding following the birth of his second daughter Daisy, but has recently returned to the percussion squad because Derek has now realised he can't manage without him!! Duncan's banding highlights were the bands win at Pontins in 2001 and playing at the Albert Hall. He is married to cornet player Megan and has a daughter Michaela who plays in the senior and youth band.
