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!!!

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!!
