I am very pleased to announce that the first StaxofSax workshop for 2020 is happening on Saturday February the 29th in Newport on the Isle of Wight.

Not sure if this counts as an overseas event, but it is a beautiful place and we love living here.

The workshop will cover a Q and A session about anything saxophone related,  Large ensemble playing, and help and advice on taking your playing to the next level plus other items.

The details are on the flyer below, and I would really appreciate it if you could share this post with as many Saxophonists as possible please.

More details will follow, so watch this space, and hope to see some of your in February

I had a lovely morning visiting and playing to the residents at the Solent Grange Nursing Home today.

They all had tea and cake whilst I played a few songs, then with help from the activity coordinator, we had a sing along session with everyone taking part.

we had a good chat about the music as we went along, and lots of residents firing back answers to my questions.

Everyone enjoyed themselves, and hopefully I will be visiting them again next month for more musical fun and shenanigans.

Thank you for having me.

This was my first wedding on the Isle of Wight and also the first wedding at this venue since its new owners took over. What a lovely place to have your wedding celebrations at. The attention to detail is spot on with some great ideas including garden games to keep the children, both large and small entertained. Watching games of giant Jenga and connect four being played during the drinks reception was quite entertaining.

I played for both the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast including special requests for ‘Chunky’ by Bruno Mars requested by the bride and groom and the classic ‘ Careless Whisper’ from a guest.

The weather behaved itself, allowing everyone to enjoy their beautiful surroundings, and having watched the photographs being taken, I would think there where some great memories made yesterday.

The barn looked an excellent place for the evening party, and the band sounded great. So I imagine a good night was had by all.

Thank you Robin and Caroline for asking me to be part of your big day, and may I wish you all the happiness for your future together.

Now to start preparing for my next Island wedding in 2 weeks time.
