It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing

Singers and lead guitarists might get the girls, the spotlight and the media attention but without the drummer and the bass player it just won’t rock!!

You will probably recognise names like Slash and Axel Rose – the lead guitarist and lead singer of Guns & Roses. But do you know the name of their drummer and bass player? Everyone knows the Gallagher brothers in Oasis and Bono and The Edge in U2 but chances are the rhythm section could pass you on the street without being noticed.

Every enterprise needs a focal point, a focus for attention but businesses and rock bands need unsung heroes who carry out important jobs but do not want or seek the attention of the masses or a taste of the limelight. In musical terms the stars of the show can court the follow spot all night but without the engine room behind them it won’t rock. As Humphrey Bogart said in Casablanca ‘..It ain’t worth a hill of beans.’ Or as Duke Ellington and Irving Mills stated in their classic song ‘It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.’

At PEA we carry out a vital role delivering exactly what the client needs exactly when they need it. Like all good drummers, our timing is excellent! We won’t be playing any spectacular drum solos or inching our way into the spotlight. We are attentive and have outstanding communication skills. We know what we do best and that is to provide an unparalleled fund administration service to a growing group of highly sophisticated clients.

And like any reputable rhythm section we are a strong team and can adapt easily when the arrangement changes or a new song is introduced. We provide adaptable solutions to the operational challenges that our clients businesses face.

We are collaborative, we listen and are partnerships are long and fruitful. And like all the best bands in the world we play to our strengths for the benefit of our clients.
