Okay that’s maybe a bit of an overstatement,  but I am being interviewed on BBC radio Leicester this Wednesday morning at 10.40am. They have asked me to come along and talk about my music life.

So, if you listen in, you may even get a mention if we have done anything musical together.

Saturday 30th of July  was my 3rd time of playing at the ‘Friends of the Leicester Samaritans’ (SAMS) Beer Festival in Leicester.  This is definitely one of my favourite gigs of the year and to keep being asked back each year is a real buzz.

They have a long weekend of live music, great local food and stacks of Real Ales, Ciders and Wine and as if thats not enough Pimms aplenty.

My session was a 2 hour set in the small hall playing some jazz, pop, blues and rock tunes, and seemd to be well received by everyone with loads of singing along to some of the tunes.

The aim is to raise as much as possible to keep this truly vital service running.  This I believe has been a record year with over £4000 towards the funds.

I will keep you updated as to next years events as I have been asked back again.

Thanks to Lance and his team for making me feel welcome and for the beer tokens!! See you next year.

The 24th of July was a busy day for the guys from Folk Foundation.  In the morning Hiten and Trust played 2 sets for the wedding ceremony and another part of the celebrations, playing Sitar and Tabla. I joined them in the early evening for the wedding reception At Haslington Hall.

We entertained the Bride and Groom and their guests for 2 hours with a mixture of traditional Indian music, Bollywood,  pop and Jazz, which all went down well with everyone. 

It’s always nice when you get enquiries about new gigs and this time we spoke to 2 groups of people about their functions.

The opening of the new wine bar mentioned in the last post has been delayed for a couple of weeks, but on Monday evening they hosted a private party at which I provided the entertainment. This was in the former of background music and me playing 3 sets. The venue is great, nice and cosy with a great ambience. I am looking forward to playing on a regular basis there.
