Well, after nearly 8 years, I’m saying goodbye to one of my resident venues Illusions Magic Bar. Sadly there will no longer by live music at Illusions at the weekend, but I’d like to say thank you to Mark, the staff, my fellow musicians and of course everyone that came down to watch me through the years!
Can’t believe I was there nearly a decade – how time flies! I remember the first few gigs when the music stage used to be near the bar, with the grand piano. Fun times! Then the renovation and the nice new stage that was installed. It’s always been a totally unique and fun place to play, and I’ve had some really memorable nights there!
I’ll still be continuing my regular gigs at Smoke & Mirrors in the centre, and will also post up any other public appearances on my gigs page.
It was wild, wet and windy here in Bristol this morning. Combine that with the fact that I was out gigging until midnight, and that British Summer Time had the nerve to steal an hour of sleep from us, and I must be honest – I didn’t fancy getting out of bed when my 8.30am alarm sounded this morning!
However, drag myself from my pit I did, and I had a great day playing acoustic songs for the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fayre at Freemason’s Hall. It was lovely to meet lots of brides and grooms-to-be and chat all things wedding music. Lovely to see lots of friendly faces and mingle with fellow wedding suppliers too!
That’s my last wedding fair of the year (unless I book in any last-minute) – so if you want to catch me singing live, keep an eye on the gigs page 🙂
