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.

Kind Regards

Halloween Magic, Launching The Poppy Appeal & Off to Birmingham!

Launching the Poppy Appeal with David Merrington!

I’m afraid once again I’m between e-mails and I haven’t too long this evening before I must get back to my show plans and make sure everything is in place for my forth coming Remembrance performances. This week I’ve been busy with Halloween shows and I’ve been enjoying trying out my new arrangements.

I’m still experimenting with “That Old Black Magic/Witchcraft” which requires a different mic technique. Richard has done me proud with the musical arrangement which has a bossa nova come swing feel and requires a different laid back singing approach. I guess you could say  I’m working towards a sound which is more like

Going Witchy Poo!

Marilyn Monroe. Tender in tone and contrasts beautifully with “It’s Magic” which Richard arranged for me in the Liberace style. I’m really getting down and enjoying being Groovy with “Spooky” and “Devil in Disguise” is proving very popular too. I’ve also been “Over the Rainbow” with the Wizard of Oz this season and back on my broomstick with “Fly Me to the Moon”!

I’ve invested a great deal in this shows musical content and it’s lovely when a plan comes together. It’s been a good seller as I could see there was a demand for something which still maintaining an element of glamour with-out being ghoulish. Halloween is big business and it’s important I always stay on trend and have shows for every occasion. This season I’ve been invited to taste and try so many wonderful Halloween cakes which never cease to amaze! I shall be playing “It’s Magic” through to the 5th November and yes you guest it – I will be finishing my show on Guy Fakes night with the Joseph

It maybe Halloween but it’s important to remember this is also the season for Remembrance. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of working along side David Merrington from Leighton Buzzard’s Royal British Legion as we launched the start of the Poppy Appeal. Every year David sells Poppies for the Poppy Appeal in Morrisons supermarket and this year Morrisons invited me to join him for the Launch.  I was engaged to sing 20 minutes on 20 minutes off all through the day and between us we were able to fill 3 tins.

On Sunday I will be meeting up with Joe Marling the Poppy Man of Pitstone and then next Tuesday I will be singing in Birmingham at New Street Station for Birmingham’s RBL Poppy Appeal. Tuesday’s show will be a real killer as I start singing from 8am – 4.30pm 20 minutes on 20 minutes Off all through the day. So if you happen to be at New Street Station on Tuesday do come along and say hello. It will be lovely to see you.

This Saturday I’m in Princes Risborough performing my WW1 Show “Pack Up Your Troubles”at the Community Center to commemorate the Great War centenary . The following weekend I will be at Sherington for a special event and then on the 17th November I shall be in Leeds at Thorner Victory Hall. I shall have more news on those performances in my next blog.

In the meantime I enclose some posters about Caddington Grove

Care Home, 175 London Road, Dunstable. Newly opened it offers a wonderful range of facilities which are available to the local over 50s community. This includes a hair salon and a Dementia friendly Cinema Club. I sang for the homes opening a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed with the services they offer. So if you are local to Dunstable and over 50 do pop along and check out Caddington Grove’s  facilities.
