April 2018

It has been a busy few weeks as Spring arrives with some fantastic gigs. London City Big Band was sounding incredible at the Spice of Life on Wednesday 28th March and Urban Big Band at Googlies on Sunday 8th April is the best I’ve ever heard the Urban band sound. I absolutely love big bands (which is of course why I run my own!) and these two have been an absolute triumph indeed.

I’ve also had a great time at Musikmesse in Frankfurt Germany for three days with SaxRax which was jolly good fun as ever! I even got my room upgraded to a Suite which was sweet (pun intended, obviously!)

Walk in shower and heated toilet seat - #livingthedream!

I’m also alongside these performances going back into hiding to work on a couple of new musical based ideas and I’ve been working on a follow up as yet untitled big band album... but no news about any of that for the moment!
