2006 Site Spruce-up!

I’ve gone live with the new design for this site today. It includes some new features such as the Photo Gallery – more images coming to that soon. As usual, please contact me if you spot any problems. Everything should work fairly consistently across the major modern browsers (IE6, Mozilla Firefox 1+, Opera 7+, Safari 1.1+ etc). I’ll be testing more thoroughly in the coming days.

Update: It’s been observed that there are a few problems with the Discography page in Safari and Opera 9. Also the Jukebox doesn’t work properly in Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape. These problems will be fixed soon have now been fixed.

All change with the Rat Pack.

I’m pleased to announce that since the beginning of the week, I’ve taken over the Lead Trumpet chair on The Rat Pack, Live From Las Vegas European Tour. Our previous Lead, Andy Cuss, decided that, after over 2 years with the show, enough was enough and left us at the end of our week in Hannover, Germany.

I feel privileged to be named as his successor. Andy is a terrific Lead player and I’ve been fortunate enough to play in the section with him for the past 20 months or so. I’ve learned a huge amount from him and will miss having him around! I hope I can keep up the high standard that he set for us.

Tour Dates Updated

We’ve just received a new schedule for the Rat Pack Tour 2006. It seems that we now have dates pretty solidly up to the end of July.

I’ve updated the Schedule page so you can check it all out for yourselves. It really is turning into the never-ending tour!!!
