Wow!finally got there,Last sunday was the first of my new venture at the Millfield theatre a lovely venue in North London.It was a hectic period for me with rehearsals for a concert at Trinity College of music with the great female contemporary classical composer Alwyn Pritchard,I had also Directed the music presentation for The "State of Play" Education conference at the Roundhouse in Camden. while trying to put together a band for a private gig at Hackney empire for the 2012 Olympic committee and teaching,fortunately they both came together really well the band had Byron Wallen,Cleveland Watkiss,Steve Williamson,Benet Mclean,Troy Miller,Neville Malcolm and truly kicked.The Trinity concert was part of the WIRED UP Festival at the music college.A new venture for the college in the area of electronic music.A full house greeted each concert in the festival.We closed the Wednesday evening with some lovely pieces written by Alwyn that brought the house down.Friday I went along to the debut gig of Robert Mitchells great new band.Corey Mwamba was on vibes an inspiring addition as was Shaney Forbes drums,Tom Mason Bass,A stellar lineup finished off with Omar Puente Violin and the fantastic Deborah Jordan Vocals.
What a great gig and the band was on seriously on fire.
