An awful year.3 Apr 2021An awful year. It has been an incredibly sad and hard year - families and friends losing loved ones to this terrible pandemic, families and friends being unable to see each other.Jobs and businesses going to the wall and, all the usual landmark dates that we look forward to over the year to include those extra dates like weddings and births - all gone because of this pandemic.These have had far reaching effects on thousands if not millions of lives and the mental health and well being of the same.I know for a fact that this it has been a hard time for many of my colleagues in the entertainment industry and like them I cannot wait to get back out there to do my little bit to break the monotony.Things will take time to get back to normal or perhaps "the new" normal but - lets make a start as soon as we can.Small steps my friends .......... small steps - see you back in the game of life soon.
Busy Busy Busy16 May 2018Busy Busy Busy Its been a crazy sort of year, since I moved to Luton four years ago this has been my busiest year so far!There have been some massive developments off stage in all areas of my life - but the on stage bit has kept me sane.Having made the transition from drummer/backing singer in various bands and projects since I was a kid through to fronting a few covers bands and now going solo albeit with backing tracks - I feel quite liberated.I must be doing something right as the bookings are flying in and I'm happy about that as there is nothing I love more than watching people enjoying themselves and I really get a buzz if I am helping them to get there.But I have to say here that I wouldn't be anywhere if it wasn't for the people who have reacted to what I do and to those people who run the venues that I regularly gig in.There is one woman in particular who took a chance on me when I walked in to her club and said "hello - I'm a singer any chance of a gig"?I could almost see the panic in her eyes, as there I was a short, plump, beer swilling baldy bloke who looked more like a friar tuck than any kind of singer - but I left her with the question and let her take her time.After a couple of months she came back to me, she dismissed the "cover of the book" and took a chance on content - she gave me a gig.I'm happy to say that after that gig she threw open her diary to me and said "pick as many as you want"!I now regularly do at least four bookings a year for her but just as important she put me in contact with various other venues and recommended me time and time again to others.I already had some regular venues in North London but now she had opened up the doors here in Luton so - thank you Tracey Pinney of The Sundon Park Social Club, Luton for all your help - I am working every weekend without fail.That is what this little blog is all about.See you somewhere soon everyone.
New years eve at The Sundon Park Social Club2 Jan 2017New years eve at The Sundon Park Social Club No - the picture is not new years eve - that's me and my gorgeous daughter randomly messing with selfies.Well - what a great night I had at the Sundon on new years eve, I play there on a regular basis over the year but NYE was special for me.You kindly allowed me to indulge in some of my favourite songs during a long set and I really enjoyed dusting them off and doing them again this is as I now consider, my home gig and even on my more stressful and tiring days I look out at the audience in the club and if they are tapping their feet, singing along or up on the floor dancing then I feel its worth it.Always a great place to play good people great staff and good times - love it!
