I have not written on my site for a while, so thought it only fair to give you an update what I have been up too.
Just before the New Year I was busy doing Panto with PADOS and did a few gigs with Soulvation and Junction 31. It was great to be playing live. Nothing beats playing in a live situation.
This year I was lucky enough to attend the NODA Noth West Region Awards Night at the Palace Hotel in Manchester. Both off the societies where I was Musical Director was nominated for Best Panto! PADOS for “Crock of Gold” and Urmston Musical Theatre for “Snow White” I was very proud of both societies, sadly we never won anything. But it’s the taking part that counts.
I will be working with both these societies again this year. Urmston in October for “A Night At The Musicals 2” then PADOS in December for Panto. Watch this space for details.
In March I will be playing for The Operetta Company again as Keyboard Player. I love playing for these shows and get too experience the wonderful melodies of yesteryear. I also get to play with the talented Orchestra that we have. The sound we produce gets better and better each year. We are doing “Summer Song” If you can get down we would love to see you. (4th to 7th March)
I start rehearsals for the Urmston show in March, so I am going to be very busy.
I was hoping to do more gigging with a few function bands this year, but sadly this has not worked out. If any one requires a hard working keyboard player. Give me a shout!
Speak to you all soon!
