Jazz Jam at Gabri Friday 12th April.

Very lucky to be invited along to join the band of highly experienced musicians for this Jazz Jam.  The first one at Gabri.

It was loads of fun.  There was a lovely vibe in this restaurant, friendly hosts and patrons, great food and refreshments.  Just a great night all round.

The music was all about Jazz!  Met some new players tonight, and enjoyed watching the interaction between some of them.

Watch this space! Possibility of a return invite.

Treble Clef Lounge – Sunday 7th April.

We had a fantastic afternoon at The Treble Clef Jazz Lounge

It was great playing with Body & Soul – Jan Blake, Tony Robertson, Frank Morgan and Me.

The audience, as always, were very appreciative and it was great to have the support of our families and friends.  Thanks everyone.

I was very happy to have my daughter with me yesterday, she has just returned from her 5 week overseas tour.

Make sure you put this in your diary

Bar Oussou – Soiree Musique

Had a great night last night at Bar Oussou in Brunswick. 

I was thrilled to be invited to join in the Soirée Musique.  Bar Oussou has many organised events and the Soirée Musique is held on the first friday of each month.  It was lovely to play with a great bunch of solid backing musicians. 

It’s always so nice that a new musician can join a group and there is no need for words, music is the conversation.  I enjoyed the many new conversations I had last night.

Loved watching all the French patrons having the best time!

Standing Tall -Sept 2015

Always enjoy playing with these guys.  Unfortunately this gig clashed with Jazz Notes at the RSL, After a quick packup and drive I managed to make it to Northcote for the last hour.  Lovely audience – thanks Stan for having me.
