As you can imagine, I get very busy over Christmas and New Year. I absolutely love this time of year, the atmosphere at every event gets that extra 10% and it’s always a pleasure to be part of people’s festive celebrations. But before we talk about that, I want to update you all on what’s been going on recently.
Annabel’s with The IT Girls
Some of you might remember that I played with the world famous IT Girls when I performed for Richard Branson last year. Well this year I was able to share the stage with them again, some of the finest female performers and dancers, this time at Annabel’s private members club. These girls are incredible and you’ve probably seen them at big events in London, not to mention they continue to play for Richard Branson’s social occasions in between corporate gigs at Mercedes, Sony and more. In short, the top of the tree when it comes to live entertainment. And as you can see, it was a very special Halloween at Annabel’s indeed…
BMArtists register growing by the day
The last time I found time to write on this blog was the launch of BMArtists, which went live with around 6 performers. We now have more than 20 on board and this numbers continues to rise as the word spreads. We are still only bringing on very carefully selected artists that I have played with and can vouch for their calibre. Here’s one of our latest signings, the incredible ‘Soulz Duo’ performing Move On Up in our studio…
Christmas and New Year
Christmas is almost entirely fully-booked, but I’ve reserved the special day to team up with a local charity helping give back to the community. On Christmas Day, the charity will be opening its doors to to the lonely and elderly of South London who don’t have any family to spend the holidays with. I’ll be going along to entertain them with old time classics whilst they share the day (and a Christmas dinner!) together. I’m really excited about being able to provide this kind of experience for people who have fallen on hard times.
In the New Year, I’m very excited that I’m going to be joining forces with Fil Straughan again. For those of you who don’t know Fil (where have you been?!), he’s one of the very best live entertainers in London. You can find him on Spotify, iTunes and filling dancefloors all around the world. We’re going to be collaborating on a new soulful, house remix that I will update you with as soon as I have more news!
But before then, I’ll be kicking off 2017 with a series of gigs, performances and recordings in New Zealand.
Not a bad way to spend the festive break, I think you’ll agree…
