The 1st Sunday music supplement

Yesterday saw the first gig of the sunday music supplement A new monthly event that I am running at the wonderful Millfield theatre in edmonton north london.We had A lovely audience and what a way to start it was a full house we couldn't actually fit everyone in so unfortunately some peoples view was a little restricted ( sorry about that).The musicians Cleveland Watkiss Vocals,Steve Williamson Sax,Byron Wallen Trumpet,were truly outstanding as they always are.They all used live looping and Fx processing to create some wonderful soundscapes that had the audience enthralled.
I played Marimba for a change and had a ball on some collaborative pieces.There were many families that turned up and that made the atmosphere very different from the normal one you would have at events like this,It was a real joy to see the looks on the faces of the young ones as they watched the musicians stretch the music in all different directions at the drop of a hat.A big thank you from me to all involved and to the many wellwishers who contributed to such a fantastic opening.Next one on 18th FEBRUARY DETAILS TO FOLLOW.
