Aretha Franklin show back at Hideaway this Thursday, Friday & Saturday!

Hi everyone,

So I’m back from touring Germany with Maggie Reilly and we’re straight into a run of our Aretha Franklin show at Hideaway in Streatham. This was one of our most popular shows last year and probably my favourite one to play.

We’re featuring Nina Ferro and Brendan Reilly and some great new arrangements of some classic Aretha tunes. Stella band too including Janette Mason on piano, Billy Adamson on guitar and Westley Joseph on drums as well as a two-piece horn section. It’s gonna be rather special…

If you missed the show last time, here’s a couple of little tasters of what you can expect. First up is Nina and Brendan singing I Knew You Were Waiting For Me)

And here’s Nina performing (You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman

You can book your tickets at the Hideaway website or over the phone on 020 8835 7070.

See you there…

Wall To Wall Prince

Hello folks

Last week we put on three nights of Prince at Hideaway in Streatham featuring David McAlmont and Baby Sol as part of our Wall To Wall series. Previously we’ve showcased the music of David Bowie, Aretha Franklin and the Bond movies and frankly I’ve been itching to get stuck into Prince night for ages!

If you missed the shows (shame on you!) then luckily for you Hideaway are rather excellent at putting together videos from the shows so ere’s a couple of clips for you to check out. I’m pretty sure we’ll be putting on the Prince show again sometime next year so watch this space for announcements of dates. The Bowie show is definitely happening again at the beginning of next year so check out the Hideaway website for dates and get yourselves booked in. They sell out pretty fast…

I’ll be off on the Duckworth Lewis Method tour on the 20th September so hopefully I’ll see some of you there. I reckon the next blog post will be from on the road. It’s gonna be fantastic! See you there…

Wall To Wall at Hideaway: The Bowie VideoBlog

Hello folks

Last week saw the debut of our new Bowie show at Hideaway featuring the awesome duo of David McAlmont and Sam Obernik. Or ‘Sam & Dave’ as they now like to be called…

We played three nights at Hideaway in Streatham with a great band including Janette Mason on piano, Jack Pollitt on drums and Dave Ital on guitar.

Sam Obernik

As usual, Hideaway have edited together a few videos from the show so I thought I’d post them all together here in what has become the traditional fashion. In fact I’d very much recommend subscribing to their YouTube channel to keep up to date with what’s going on over there. Anyway, here are the Bowie videos. I hope you enjoy them…

Our next show at Hideaway starts next week and will feature the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, presented by Nicola Emmanuelle and Juliet Roberts. I’d get booking if I were you folks…

See you there x
