Sunday was a very good day at the 10th Wight Bridal Wedding Show in Newport IoW.

There was a change this time with the layout, as we had half of the small gym (where I exhibit) set up as a fully decorated marquee, showing what your wedding could look like if you hired one of these.

We had a live band too, so we took it in turns to play and it worked very well.  They also had a jazz guitarist doing some very nice laid back tunes.

I was booked for 2 events on the day, and had some good conversations with loads of happy couples.  A couple of the venues that where promoting the wedding services also spoke to me about other events they are looking for music for, Valentines night and corporate dinners.

It was also really nice to speak generally to the other suppliers and see how life is treating them.

From the feedback of other suppliers, I think a good day was had by one and all.

My next Wedding show is at the Ventnor Botanical Gardens on the 3rd of March 2019.20190127_084559

As you know, we moved to the Isle of Wight at the end of November.  As with most moves, there is a lot too do, with packing, cleaning, moving, more cleaning, decorating and unpacking to contend with.

Plus, once you are at your new home, especially being self employed, there is the task of getting your business back up and running.

I was lucky enough to bring some of my original students with me via Skype and Facetime lessons, and these are working very well.

I then contacted some players that had attended previous StaxofSax workshops with me, explaining that lessons can now be done remotely, and 2 more have now joined me regularly.  Through advertising on Facebook groups, I have taken on 2 local students and I have been posting cards in shop windows this week.  I still have space for a few more students either face to face or Remotely so please feel free to get in touch.

Busking has been going well in both Shanklin and Ventnor, and hopefully later today, I will go and play in Ryde.  A very kind lady bought me a hot chocolate yesterday as it was very cold busking.

I am exhibiting at the Wight Bridal Wedding Show at the Medina Sports centre on the 27th of January, so why not pop along for a chat about your wedding music.

I have my first wedding of the year on the 2nd of February, and definitely looking forward to that.

I will be playing at 2 local residential and day care centres in the next few weeks, these are great fun, and we always have a good singalong too.

The business is steadily moving forward and growing, which is great. Ohh nearly forgot….. we also live in the best place in the world!Screenshot_20171228-084841
