Over the last few weeks, I have been taking part in presenting a Sunday Evening Q and A live Video session on Facebook.

This is taking place on a page run by Daniel Christian, called Learning Saxophone-Get help and Chat about all things music,  Here is the link.

We start at 8pm UK time for about an hour, and anyone who is a member of the page can join in.  Its very informal and great fun, with players of all abilities asking the questions that are bugging them.

Why not pop over this evening, join the group and take part.  It would be great to see you.

 

Thanks

2017 had got off to a great start.

I have taken bookings for 2 weddings this week, the first is in Derby at the Roundhouse and I will be playing with the Folk Foundasian Sax trio. The 2nd is at Barton Court nr Malvern in October as a solo act.  Barton court is a lovely old House that I discovered at the end of last year, whilst playing at a wedding fayre there.

This Saturday is a full day rehearsal with Folk Foundasian working on a ton of new songs.  Both Bollywood and western tunes are on the agenda, so should be fun.

If there are any weddings or events that you think I may be able to help at, then please get in touch for a chat.

 

Best wishes

In my previous blog post I told you about playing at an old friends wedding this weekend.
Well I that yesterday was one of the happiest weddings, either as a guest or playing for, that I have ever had the good fortune to be part of.
I was asked to play at the wedding reception, so as I was walking down the side of the church to set up in the back garden, I could hear singing from inside. Pretty standard activity you would think,  until I realised that ‘Crazy little thing called love’ and ‘Walking on sunshine’ are not found in any hymn books that I have come across before.
Apparently some of the congregation had performed a flash mob at the end of the service for the happy couple,  which was a great success.  You have got to love people with an imagination.
I started off playing in the garden, which was lovely with the good weather.  I threw in ‘Crazy little thing called love’ and everyone joined in singing. What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
We moved inside when it was time to eat. I think the food had be organised by friends and members of the church.  They had a very nice afternoon tea party with proper China cups and saucers, cake stands and teapots on each table. The hall had been transformed into a splendid wedding reception hall and everyone concerned with the decoration and food production should be very proud of their hard work.
A nice touch was having a master of ceremonies, who I think was a friend of the bride and groom.  He had a great sense of humour and made the afternoon run like clockwork.
All in all it was a really great day, and a pleasure and privilege to be part of.
Thanks again Graham and Rosie for asking me.
Best wishes for the future together.
