Sam Beeton Glee Club Gig

Wow, that sums up the Sam Beeton gig I sat in on at Glee Club Nottingham. Sam is an awesome songwriter and performer. The band were heavy weights too with Chris Taggart (Stevie Wonder, Robin Trower) on drums and Chris Bucknall (Climax Blues Band, Stewart Copeland) on keys. These guys are on another planet musically and I was/am genuinely humbled to be invited to play on the gig. Here’s a video of one of my favourite Sam Beeton tracks.

Back to planet (damp) earth

We got married! Finally, after 10 years, one mortgage and two kids we did it. We spent most of August holidaying/Honeymoon in the south of France. After all that sun the damp climate of this years Galtres Festival in Yorkshire was a shock. Another fun festival, the last of the season with Miss 600. What a cool festival, hopefully we will be back there next year as well.

Epic weekend of gigage

What an epic few days of gigs. Highlights included The Cornbury Festival with Miss 600 and a really fun wedding with pro-function ska/soul/rock band LICK. I even managed to take Sunday off with the family and hang out in the sun in the garden. Brilliant:)

I love this photo of LICK in full tilt!

That time of year

It’s that time of year at the day gig. Finally we’ve reached the end of the academic year! After one of the busiest periods in the academic calendar we can finally put our collective feet up………or not. This week as well as undergoing continued professional development (training stuffs) and preparation for the forthcoming academic year I have four gigs, a couple of rehearsals and a few tracks to record. Putting my feet up will have to wait. Thankfully its all fun, I’m very grateful for these opportunities.

On Saturday I’m playing the Cornbury Festival with Miss 600 (the band are a stunning group of musicians with scary chops. No pressure!). It looks to be an amazing line up. Gutted I won’t get to see Wilko Johnson as I have another gig 2.5 hours away that evening. Its the second time I’ve missed getting to see this legendary player.
