Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary
Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably
unlike Prudie my spelling is quite frightful at the best of times due to my dyslexia so I shall apologise now for anything
which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become
a regular visitor to my site.
Hello every-one I’m back at my desk after spending much of this week on the road with the start of my “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” season. As you might expect when ones most busy there always seem to materialize a problem. This week one of my little ZX1 speakers went down when I was in Harlow and I had to do my show today with my 300s which taking into consideration the size of the venue was a little over played. Fortunately I was able to scale the sound back to suit the venue but I feel it’s important whenever I play somewhere my rig is right for the show. This job ideally needed two ZX1s as one wouldn’t have been enough but in the end I used one 300 which worked out just fine.
Springing into Christmas!
A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square!
All being well I hope to get my speaker back tomorrow before I dash off to my next show in Abingdon. At first I thought it was one of my wires then I though it might have been the amp and then I realized it was the speaker which was the problem . So fingers crossed it’s just a dry joint which can be easily fixed!
On Wednesday I worked all afternoon with David on my videos and showreels and I’m pleased to say I have five new videos coming out in the next few weeks. Three of my videos have already been up loaded to You Tube and I’m very proud of them. It’s great when a plan come together and to see the fruits of my labor.
Yesterday I up loaded Nessun Dorma and today my new 1940’s showreel on Facebook which opens up with Doris Day’s song “It’s Magic” before you see me in my different military uniforms and costumes. We filmed more songs than we used in the final cut as I felt the showreel was a little too long. However I’m now very pleased pleased with the content and colour balance. If you haven’t seen my films here are the links you can click onto which I hope you will all enjoy and share with your friends.
When I write my next blog I will share with you my other video which is the WW1 Recruitment song “I’ll Make a man of You”. This song was sung by Maggie Smith in the 1969 film “Oh it’s a Lovely War” and I thought it would be appropriate to release this song for 2018 to tie in with the 1918 centenary.
After working all day with David I met up with my friends Betty and Chris as we had tickets to see the “That’ll Be the Day” Christmas Show at The Waterside Theater in Aylesbury and what a great show it was too. I spent all evening singing along with the Christmas hits of yester-year as many of the songs are ones I use in my own show. You may not believe this but back in 1991 I did sound and lights for “That’ll be the Day” when I was a Red Coat at the Metropole Hotel in Blackpool. Small world isn’t it!
That’s all my news for now apart from I’m working on some new international pages for my web-site which I hope will make things easier for clients who are looking to book me from abroad.
That’ll Be The Day Show!
Keep Watching and Toodle Pip!
