So last weekend was busy with gigs in Leicester and London plus visiting my daughters in Kent.  However this weekend is even busier, but its all gigs.

Friday night is at the Falcon Hotel in Uppingham for a wedding drinks reception.  Saturday afternoon is also in Rutland for a 40th birthday party and Newtown Linford in the evening for a 70th birthday party.  Sunday is a Mellow D’s wedding gig in Daventry.

Plus, a new student booked into start lessons and another coming for a trial lesson next week.

Have a great weekend everyone

The weekend starts with the Mellow D’s playing at the Samaritan Beer Festival tonight.  We kick off the live music at 8pm.

Not only live music, but loads of different beers to try, along with ciders, wines and pims.  Lovely local food too, sounds like a good night out, and in aid of a very worthwhile charity too.  Come and join us.

Saturday I am heading off to the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for a solo gig, providing the background music for a drinks reception.

After that I will be heading straight to sunny Kent to spend the rest of the weekend with my 2 daughters.  Really looking forward to that.

Hope you have a great weekend too.

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.

I am pleased to announce that my latest track Tum Hi Ho has hit cdbaby to purchase, and Spotify. It will also be available on iTunes shortly.

“Tum Hi Ho” (“You are the one”) is a song from the Indian movie Aashiqui 2, sung by Arijit Singh and composed by Mithoon.

I play Soprano and Tenor sax on this Bollywood hit.  It’s one of my favourites to play as it has a beautiful melody line that will around for a long time to come.

i hope that you enjoy it, let me know what you think.

 

best wishes and I hope that you enjoy it.

thanks
