Seasons Greetings

While I remember and/or have time, I’d like to wish one and all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I’m celebrating with my family at my parents house on Christmas Day itself, the rest of the festive season will be spent in Birmingham doing the Rat Pack at Christmas show. We begin our second of four weeks at the Alexandra Theatre this evening. The show’s going pretty well and we’re having a good time. There seem to be some tickets still remaining so come out and see us!!

A Musician in a Marathon?

Sounds unlikely, I know, and obviously it’s not me(!), but a friend of mine Pete Shelley; saxophonist on the Rat Pack Christmas show here in Birmingham, is running in the Flora London Marathon 2006. He’s managed to get an entry running for a charity called “Help The Hospices” and now needs people to sponsor him so he’s allowed to finally participate!

So, if you’d like to help a young man fulfil his dream as well as doing a lot of good work for charity, please visit his Sponsorship website and lend your support. I certainly will be!!

Christmas Show Confirmed

I’m pleased to (finally) confirm that I will be playing Lead Trumpet for “Christmas with the Rat Pack” at Birmingham’s Alexandra Theatre this Christmas.
The show runs from Monday 12th December for 4 weeks. Please come and check it out, should be a lot of fun!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Happy Birthday to me!!! Thirty-one years old today and all set for much more fun than last year.

Today I’m jetting off to Dublin for a week there with the Rat Pack tour. It brings the tour full circle for me; my first week depping on the show was in Dublin during May last year. Anyway, should be a lot of fun…

Here’s to a sore head in the morning…
