Hot Numbers

I’m looking forward to this Friday (29th), playing at Hot Numbers in Cambridge. I don’t often get to perform in my home town so this is a real treat.  The musicians in my Turquoise band are pretty awesome so everyone is in for a great time. We’re playing a very eclectic mix over two sets, just to keep the audience (and ourselves) guessing!!  😉

Gearing up for France

I’m really excited and looking forward to 6 days singing jazz and blues in France so taking a few days chill-out time before I leave on 12 August.

A GREAT EVENING AT SCOTSDALES

Thank you Scotsdales audience for another wonderful evening on Thursday 13 July, we loved playing for you.  It was my 11th year of performing this annual event and it’s so encouraging to see you returning year after year.  Thank you also for the generosity you showed when we ‘shook the buckets’ for the Dosoco Foundation. 

And thank you Scotsdales for the amazing hospitality you always give at this event.

Scotsdales

We’re ramping up towards the Scotsdale gig tomorrow. The band sounded amazing in rehearsal  last night.

WE ARE SOUND

An amazing gig last night in Bury St Edmunds. ‘WE ARE SOUND’ gave a superb performance of a very eclectic set of music in their sold-out ‘BURST’ concert. The audience loved it and treated the singers and musicians to a standing ovation. Thank you Andrea Cockerton for making it happen yet again. You are a star and it’s a privilege to be part of it.

The Ice House Gig

I’m looking forward to ‘guesting’ a few numbers with the Kingston Blues Band at the Ice House in Dry Drayton, Cambs on Friday 16th June.

We Are Sound

We had an amazing time on Sunday rehearsing for the BURST gig in Bury St Edmunds on  Saturday 8 July.  The lovely Fyfe Dangerfield of the Guillimots joined us to  hear our cover of his gorgeous song, Little Bear, which we will perform during the Bury gig.  We then spent time  being recorded and directed by Fyfe for one of his  current music projects. It was such a privilege and delight. He’s a very special person and a lovely family man.

Jamming with Mark Warner

Spent a wonderful time with Mark Warner today, jamming the ‘blues’.  Mark is an awesome guitarist and blues singer from Louisiana, USA, and has been in the UK visiting friends.  Mark joined us for the open music night in Toft People’s Hall, on Saturday 13 May.  It was such a treat and a real surprise for our own local musicians. It was a great  privilege to spend time today learning from  such a master of his art. He returns to the USA tomorrow to join his band ‘Road Doctor Revue’
