My Blog


This is my Blog for music related things that happen to me.  Useful articles posted by other people will be linked from the Music Info page.

I will only post on here when I feel that there is something of interest to say, rather than trying to do something everyday.

Please feel free to leave comments and feedback

Hi Folks

Just wanted to let you know that I have uploaded a new video to Youtube.

I recorded it at Keythorpe Manor in Rutland, while I was playing for a wedding in July 2017, using my phone.

I have some other videos to add soon so keep an eye out for them.

 

Best wishes

On Saturday last Folk Foundasian played at a wedding in Derby at a Venue called the Roundhouse.  This is a very old building with a fascinating history.  It was were locomotives were brought to be repaired and turned around to go in different directions.

They have kept a lot of the old features in place which gives a great ambiance to the venue.

Hiten provided music for the ceremony and the drinks reception during the day, and Trush and I joined him for the evening Wedding meal.

A mixture of Bollywood and Indian folk tunes plus western jazz pop and funk was the order of the day musically, and we had great fun playing it for everyone and loads of positive comments and enquiries for future musical events.

We will also be continuing with the format that we had at Christmas, with Large ensemble in the morning and Jazz OR small ensemble in the afternoon. Its your choice as to which you do after lunch, just let me know your preference.
 
Could I ask that everyone forwards this post on so that we can get in touch with as many Saxophonists as possible please.

Yesterday was a lovely day for a Wedding,  and Leanne and Marc had theirs at Goosedale in Nottingham. The weather was good and everyone seemed to have a good time.

I was asked to play for both the ceremony and drinks reception yesterday, including tunes that are special to the bride and groom.  I especially liked the slower version of ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Jasmine Thompson and will using that one on a regular basis.

‘Goosedale is an old farm that has had its barn converted to hold weddings and events along with other rooms.’

Thanks for asking me to be part of your big day Leanne and Marc and best wishes for your future together
