First of all let me apologise for the lack of recent posts on this site.  The reason for it is that both Carole and I took the decision about 18 months to move house to the Isle of Wight.  To some of you this is probably not a big surprise if you know us, as we have spent so much time over here that we where almost residents a year ago.

Well now we have moved to a small town called Shanklin and we live a whole 10 minute walk from the seafront and loving every minute of it.

 

Loads to do on the house, but that’s for the future.  Now I must build the business back up and start getting my name out there, this side of the Solent.

I am playing next week at the Freshwater Resource Centre for their Christmas party, these are a great bunch of senior citizens who definitely know how to have a laugh.  Plus they have invited me to join them for Christmas Dinner that day, how cool is that.

I have already met a few potential new students that are looking to learn or improve, and I am doing Skype/FaceTime lessons with some of my Leicester students too.

I have 8 Island weddings in the diary for 2019, but there is loads of room for more.

I will be aiming to put regular posts up here, so please feel free to comment or contact me if you are interested in my services.

 

I look forward to speaking to you soon.

I have just added to my YouTube channel a video of 1000  years by Christina Perri.

It was recorded at the request of a potential client of mine as she would like to walk down the aisle to me playing it.

It was taken using my phone so nothing has been adjusted and definitely sounds better through either headphones or a decent speaker.

Have a great weekend

A beautiful venue for a wedding reception. The hotel have laid on garden games to entertain the guests, including Space hopper racing and a coconut shy to name but two.

I’m all prepared and ready to play for the drinks reception outside and found myself a nice shaded spot for it too.

Best wishes for your future together goes to the bride and groom.

Last weekend was the date for Mark and Judy to tie the knot at Lisle Combe, St Lawrence nr Ventnor.

It was a lovely sunny day and Lisle Combe is perfect for a smaller wedding.  It is still a family home, which gives it a very friendly atmosphere, whilst having views to die for and access to a small beach for those special photographs.

Judy made a lovely entrance coming down the main staircase to meet Mark, and then walking up the aisle together to the Barbara Streisand version of ‘Evergreen’.  A special request for ‘The Watermill’ was played during the signing of the register.

This is normally played on Oboe, but fits really well on Soprano Saxophone too.

After the ceremony, came the photographs, and the lawns and house provided a beautiful backdrop for these.

The wedding breakfast was accompanied by background music, with me playing out on the veranda and the music drifting in through the open patio doors.

The evening entertainment was provide by an island band called the ‘Tea and Biscuit Boys’.  They are a skiffle band that are absolutely great to see and hear live.  I was lucky enough to be asked to join in for the first dance with them.

I would certainly recommend them for any event or going to see at a local festival if you can.

It was lovely to be asked to be part of Judy and Marks special day, as they, and loads of their friends and family came and had a chat with me and made me feel very welcome, with loads of positive comments about the music too.

Also a big thank you to Ruth and Robert Noyes who own Lisle Combe who also made me feel welcome in their home.

All in all, a lovely day was had by one and all.

Yesterday was the first day this year that was warm enough to have part of a wedding outside.

This was Richard and Emily’s wedding reception at the Old Stable at Swithland in Leicestershire.  What a lovely place for a gathering of friends and family to wish the happy couple all the best for the future.

Thank you for asking me to be part of your special day Richard and Emily.

 

Best wishes
