Today was my first wedding of the year. The happy couple had their drinks reception and Wedding breakfast at Kingston Manor near Chale.

it’s a beautiful venue, new to me but I can’t wait to go back.

The weather was perfect for the festivities and everyone was enjoying themselves playing with the garden games and catching up with family and friends.

some new tunes today including ones from London Grammar and Bakermat.

many thanks to Katrina and Phil for asking me to be part of their big and best wishes for their future together.

I have just posted a cover of Toploaders Song, Dancing in the Moonlight. This is a great song for weddings and parties.

The video also has lots of pictures from venues that I have played at on the Island.

I hope you like it, let me know what you think.

Have a great day.

Today started off with a normal workload of lessons and residential homes to play at and a swing band gig at the weekend.

But then things started to go a little bit astray.

First one lesson had to cancel due to ill health, then another cancelled due to work patterns changing. This was followed with my car breaking down and the garage not being able to look at it until Thursday. This meant I had to cancel a saxophone quartet rehearsal and the residential home as I have no transport! O boy this is becoming an odd week.

However the sun has come out again as I have taken 2 wedding bookings for next year and I am talking to a potentially new clarinet student looking to start lessons and I have also gained some extra practice time as I have 13 new songs to learn for upcoming weddings and events.

I hope that you are all having a good week and I hope that your day pans out as well as mine

Best wishes

I have just uploaded a video taken at the Medina Wedding Fayre last week.

it’s one of my favourite songs, Elton Johns ‘Your Song’

recorded using my phone, but came out pretty well I think.

I hope you like it.

I have just posted a video that I made yesterday of Dusty Springfields ‘I Only Wanna Be With You.’

A great fun song that would make a good exit song from a your wedding ceremony.

The pictures are some of my favourite places on the Island and some of the venues I have played recently.

Please check it out and let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend

I thoroughly enjoyed today as it was a two gig day, and I’ve not had one of those for a while.

Started off at the Briars Residential home in Sandown, always a great atmosphere there and a lovely bunch of people to play for. We had some dancers and plenty of singing from both residents and staff.

I also managed to cover 2 out of the 3 requests from one lady, I have started work on learning the 3rd one for next time.

After lunch it was over to Solent Grange at Wootton Bridge for my regular session with Ali and Leah and the residents there.

A lot more dancing and a good old singalong session too, these guys do love a bit of Rock and Roll to finish the afternoon off.

Tomorrow, I am off to Blackwater Mill near Newport to entertain the Ladies and Gents there for the afternoon, so I will report back on that later.

If you would like a chat about what I can offer for your residents or social club, please feel free to get in touch for a chat.

Many thanks

This is the time of year when couples start to plan and book for their weddings, and to confirm this I have 4 weddings shows booked to exhibit at in February.

One of the difficulties that couples have, is not knowing what to ask suppliers when they are discussing their wedding.

So I have put together a document relating to the music side of the big day. This should give you a good idea of the things that you should be thinking about, and to discuss with your other half before talking to the musicians about your big day.

If you can think of anything else that should be added to the list, please let me know and I will add it for other couples.

Thanks you for taking the time to read this.
