Wight Festival of Christmas 


I am looking forward to playing at the Wight Festival of Christmas at Newport, Isle of Wight, this weekend. 

Loads of Christmas ideas for you to look at plus live music.

I am playing on both the 25th and 26th, pop along and say hi.

This year workshop is taking place on December the 29th at the Salvation Army Hall in South Wigston.

It is open to anyone with 12 months or more playing experience and covers ensemble work, both large and small, plus jazz improvisation if you fancy it.

The main details are on the attached flyer,  and I would be very grateful if you could share this with any sax teachers and players that you may know.

Its a great fun day after the Christmas festivities and a chance to get out of the house and blow off some steam.

I hope that some of you can join us, and if you have any questions drop me an email or ring.  dave.saxteach@yahoo.co.uk or Tel: 07736 471861

Many thanks

Blue Moon Video


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.

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.
