Welcome to Access All Areas

We are proud to launch our new look website for 2021!

As from today, our old (.co.uk version of the website) will no longer be valid.

Many local musicians will remember Buddy’s Drum Centre (BRADFORD’S ORIGINAL SPECIALIST DRUM STORE) and think that it closed.

Buddy’s has continued for many years thanks to Master Drum Tutor Billy Lockwood, but up until now, concentrating on music tuition as most of the time the doors were locked whilst the lessons carried on inside.

Access all areas now brings:

The Music Tutors of Buddy’s and Alistair Brackenridge (former drummer with the New Tornados and roadie for Kiss, Metallica, U2, Magnum and many other top worldwide rock acts).

This is an exiting new venture for us and is a good addition to resurrection of the Bradford shopping scene, being led by the soon to be opened Westfield shopping centre.

We are going back to how things used to be, where your music shop was the place where musicians can come in and hang out, have a coffee and try out the instruments. Some of our customers include Rock Band Magnum, Mark Stanway (keyboards, Magnum ) Pete Spencer (Smokie and Chris Norman band), Ron Kelly (Spirit of Smokie and Kindness), Maurice Lee (Grumbleweeds) and John Cooper Clarke to name but a few.

You will note from the services listed on the site that we can be contacted ‘out of hours’, when musicians have a small emergency that can prevent a performance from going ahead.

With us, music is in the blood.

Look out for future events involving special workshops with some top drummers.
