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.

I have spent some of this morning working on my notes for a Bridal workshop at the Royal Esplanade Hotel in Ryde on the 11th of March 2019.

The theme of the event is Wedding Music, and myself, and other Island based musicians will be talking about different parts of the day and the music choices to be made.

We will look at what works well and what doesn’t work well.  Giving ideas based on experience and also answering any questions you may have.

 

Come along and join in with what will be a good evening to help with planning your perfect day.

Valentines night this year, saw me at the Royal Esplanade Hotel in Ryde playing for their Valentine Diners.

It was my first time there, but what a lovely hotel.  It is a Victorian grade 2 listed building, over looking the seafront.  Beautifully decorated, with lots of original features and some quirky ones too.

The dining room has great acoustics and proved to be a great place to play for the diners entertainment whilst not intruding on their meal.

Loads of positive comments from the guests and staff, and somewhere I would love to play again.Royal EsplanadeRoyal Esp Dining Room

I am in the middle of putting together a mini musical tour from the 15th to the 18th of February 2018.

Confirmed gigs are at the Isle of Wight Leonard Cheshire home, The Gouldings Care Home in Freshwater and Byrnhill Grove Care Home in Ventnor, and I am awaiting confirmation of a possible fourth gig.   This is one of my favourite type of  gigs to play at, lots of singing and joining in and loads of smiling faces.  What more could I ask for?

If anyone is looking for some musical entertainment over these dates, there is still plenty of space for you, so why not get in touch.

 

thanks

Dave
