Pat started his professional career working with Tom Robinson for several years in the early 80's and recorded Atmospherics (Listen to The Radio) which Tom co wrote with Peter Gabriel. He was also involved with the album 'Hope and Glory' and the Live album 'Midnight At The Fringe' which was recorded 'Live' at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1983. Pat toured with Tom and travelled extensively including tours of Japan & UK.
After the Tom Robinson tour, Pat returned to the UK and began working with a number of notable session musicians who formed a 'Supergroup' led by Howie Casey (Wings) and toured UK, Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East.
In 1989 he was working with the group 'Seven' when they signed to Polydor Records and toured the UK several times with Jason Donovan, Brother Beyond, The Monkees and Richard Marx and released two singles. Recently the band released an album of unreleased original material from that era through the Rock label Escape Music.
After Seven, Pat had the opportunity to work in the Middle East this time playing Double Bass in a Jazz Quartet and had the pleasure of working with George Melly and Ronnie Scott amongst others when they visited Harry's Place at The Royal Abjar Hotel, Dubai.
On returning to the UK he joined 'The Official Tribute To The Blues Brothers' as it toured the UK ending up with a run at The Comedy Theatre in London's West End.
Pat spent some time teaching Electric Bass at the Bournemouth & Poole College of Music whilst gigging regularly with local bands, doing session work and working on projects further afield.
Pat is even busier now working with Jim Cregan, Ben Mills, Sam Tanner and Harry James in Cregan & Co, with Jo Burt in The Jo Burt Experience, Robert Hart in Diesel, and with soul/funk band Groovemeister not to mention the session work and music projects he has. With his wife Elaine, he set up a regular Monday night Jazz / Funk / Blues Jam with a house band of top class musicians. Now in it's 4th year it acts as a good networking base for local and not so local musos to meet up, chat, make friends and exchange gigs and ideas.
