Just in to Boxing Day…

Well, finally taking a break after a hectic Xmas build up. BB did 2 mega sets of Rock Classics Friday 21st with me trialling my new Roland VDrum Portable kit. Got away with it but needs some tweaking. So good though to be able to arrive/leave with my kit in a bag. Going to be perfect for teaching – get in touch for a drum kit lesson IN YOUR OWN HOME (Or office)!
Last gig of the year on 22nd, on accordion…loads of Carols, hanging by a thread, just “We wish you a Merry Christmas” to go when some sadist suggests “the 12 Days of Christmas”…and it was hammering with rain…such are the trials of the wandering minstrel…

June 2012 Update!

Hello all,

much going on this month and next.

Leah and I continue to do piano and vocal jazz standards at Off Broadway on Thursday nights from 9pm.

Buenos Bastardes – my Rock Band – had a cracking rehearsal last night and are working on new numbers White Wedding, Place Your Hands (Reef), Won’t Get Fooled Again and Hard to Handle, all belters. We have a wedding gig in July and a 50th birthday in August. In response to the many requests we will be doing a public gig probably last August/early September – watch this space!

My piano students are doing well and I have a new pupil, another friend, looking to do something nice for themselves. I do have some spaces for more pupils on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5pm or 6pm so let me know if interested and spread the word. Lessons are given on my lovely upright piano in my studio off Mare Street E8 by London Fields, £20 per lesson. I also teach drum kit here if that is preferred or in addition!

Next Month:

I have been asked to curate a music festival in Shoreditch at Arnold Circus on July 8th from 1pm – 6pm. Rough Trade East did the 2 previous years so I feel honoured to be running this. I have 4 acts lined up so far and others in the wings but would be interested in hearing from anyone interested in performing, preferably local to the area and wishing to promote original material. I will be using my PA and recording equipment. If anyone would like to hire this and maybe me to operate it do let me know and I can give you details. Again, more info as and when I get it but it’s free and will be great so come down!

Barney
