Whenever I exhibit at a wedding fayre, I always have a wander around to see how people are promoting  their business and felt that my stand was a bit dated and bland.

I have spent sometime working on a new design that sits in an A4 picture frame on my stand.  The caption ‘Music Makes the Moment’ was given to me by my daughter Hannah, along with the colourful saxophone image.

So this is what I have come up with, simple, not too busy and straight forward.  Ignore the outline marks around the saxophone, they only show up on a Jpeg and not on the design in the frame (I have no idea why?)

 

What do you think?  Would you stop for a chat? Let me know.

Hi Folks

I just wanted to wish every one a happy and healthy new year for 2016.

2015 was a good year for me, with a record number of gigs played over the last 12 months.  This included joining up with the guys from Folk Foundasian ( Folk Foundasian sax trio  ) which has been a really good experience and a great learning curve for me.

I have played at some lovely venues this year including Langar Hall in Nottingham, Curradine Barns in Shrawley, a 50th wedding anniversary party in Portsmouth and Hinckley Classis car show to name but a few.

The new year starts with more confirmed gigs in the diary than ever before, and lots of projects in the pipeline, including starting work on recording a cd.

If you would like to chat about any events that you have coming up, then please drop me a line and I will come back to you as soon as possible.

 

Best wishes

Dave

Even though this is  the first week of the school holidays, things have been pretty busy here in sunny Leicester.

Thursday saw me playing at the Salvation Army Home League (which is a senior citizens club) in New Parks.  As I was brought up in the Salvation Army, I knew a few of the members from my childhood.  I took my Dad with me as he knew some other of the members too.

We had a great time, with a few tunes and a sing along session, then they finished the afternoon by singing happy birthday to me.  I had tried to keep it a secret, but it was all good fun.

Today I was playing at Sibbertoft Manor Nursing home for my normal monthly visit.  Yet again another anniversary as I have been playing there now for 2 years.

Tomorrow, I am playing at a garden party which is part of a wedding celebration week here in Wigston, and in the evening I will be playing for an Engagement party at San Carlos restaurant in Leicester.

Quite a busy week, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I hope yours is eventful too.
