Last weekend I happened to be busking in Oadby and Wigston and this weekend in Market Harborough.  The sign of a successful busking in session is not necessarily the amount of donations in the hat, though, that of course helps, but by how many business cards and leaflets have been taken.

Oadby was very windy last week and early on my leaflet board was blown across the street. However two very kind young ladies brought them back for me whilst I was still playing (the show must go on!).  I am so glad that they did as most of them were picked up during the morning by passers by. One lady is the mother of a bride to be who has wrang and booked me to play at here wedding in August at Keythorpe Manor in Leicestershire, a very nice place to get married in deed.

Quite a few leaflets where also taken in Market Harborough yesterday. Today, I received another call from a gentleman who has booked me as a surprise for his Bride at their wedding in June, I wont say where the venue is, just in case she finds out accidentally.

If you are looking for background music to entertain your guests at your wedding or party, then please get in contact

Best wishes


to see if I can help.

Richard asked me to play at his wedding to Trisha, but kept it a surprise from her. Even at the rehearsal she thought that I was just pressing the buttons on the p.a. system to play the music for the hymns and the ceremony.

They chose a lovely church called Wistow Church. The church is nearly a 1000 years old and sits in a lovely rural part of Leicestershire.

When Trisha arrived at the church the car pulled up to the front door and she saw me there with a saxophone in my hand, she had a good laugh.

Trisha went down the aisle to a lovely tune, a theme from a summers place.  This was a new tune for me, but one I will definitely use again.  Richard chose the outward tune, Can’t smile without you by Barry Manilow, another new one that will be used again.

The reception was held at the Conservative club in Wigston, and they put on a great event for the happy couple.  The room was lovely, the food was really good and theres is plenty of parking, what else could you want for your special day. Well worth considering if you are looking for a local venue.
