February 2016

February 2016 is now over and what a great month I’ve had. Recording the Big Band album was so exciting and the music is sounding fantastic! I cannot wait to share our hard work with you all. Chris Wyles and I have been mixing the album and it really is sounding massive!

Aside of this I’ve continued my regular performances with the London City Big Band and MIMIKA Mak Murtic Ensemble at the Spice of Life and the Vortex respectively. I’ve also been heavily involved with some theatre work spending a lot of time MDing Barry Manilow’s ‘Copacabana’ musical, which was tremendous fun indeed.

I’ve also enjoyed seeing lots of performances this month, including a great performance by Arcadio at the Vortex, Matt Roberts Biggish Band at Ronnie Scotts and several musicals! I’ve seen some student productions too with a particularly strong version of Kiss Me Kate performed by Mountview students, but my favourite was seeing the Book Of Mormon, a fantastic and entirely inappropriate piece of theatre!

I’m currently hibernating in an intense writing period for a couple of projects, but more performance dates will be announced soon enough!

Hope 2016 is being everything you want it to be!
