Diva Returns to Hideaway This Weekend

Hello gang,

Long time no blog. Sorry about that.

Anyway, thought I’d drop a very quick post to let you know that our Diva show is returning to Hideaway this Friday and Saturday. We’ve got four fantastic vocalists including Elaine Delmar, Heidi Vogel, Sulene Fleming and Chris Royal alongside a great house band. With me in it obviously.

If you haven’t been to one of the Diva shows yet this is your chance. It’s a great opportunity to check out some of London’s top singers in one show. There’s always a range of different music to enjoy and often features brand new arrangements from our MD Janette Mason.

Here’s a video from one of last year’s Diva shows featuring the awesome Elaine Delmar…

And if that news wasn’t exciting enough for you, I’ll be back at Hideaway next weekend for our Bowie night featuring David McAlmont and Sam Obernik. I’ll probably drop a separate post about that nearer the time to remind you.

You can get more information and book tickets for the Diva shows directly from the Hideaway website, or just buy them at the door. They might sell out though so I’d get booking if I were you.

Hopefully see some of you there!

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…

Sometimes It Snows In April

When Doves Cry


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…
