Hello one and all it’s been a busy weekend after doing 5 x 45 min shows on the Saturday and 1 x 60 min show Sunday. In truth I haven’t quite come round or unpacked proply yet. On this occasion I did my own sound which was hard going as I was using my big kit power amp and 2 x 300 speakers + my little ones too. On Sunday I had some help as Kim was able to do sound for me which makes all the difference when it comes to packing up. So thank-you Kim! There are times when I really wish I was a man and I just had that extra strengh. But saying that I’m quite strong and I can throw up my 300s ok. It’s just alot when you have 5 shows + costume changes and with my diabites I have to make sure I have enough food to cope with the extra phisical work – nothing I can’t handle – I just have to be very organised, eat proply and alway carry sugar just to be on the safe side!
This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Paul Casper the UK’s number one Geoge Formby and thank-you Paul for helping me strike down my kit Saturday and watching my Saturday evening set in the bar. It was great working with you and I enjoyed our chats very much. I hope very much we meet again on the 40s circit and I have the pleasure of working with you. A big thank-you to Chis and Amy who worked so hard to put on this event you should both be very proud and I look forward to seeing you in France on the 6th June. There you can sit back and enjoy both my shows in Arromanches and not have to worry about a thing.
It’s full steam ahead now with my Evette Show and I’ve set tomorrow aside to rehurse. I was in the recording studio this morning picking up The Statley Homes of England what a brillant writer Nole Coward was. Toodle Pip for now and do keep Watching! ;->
