just to prove a point... TOP circa 2008

Tower of Power! ol' skool pros of the soul-funk gruv

Man! What a kickass band! The horns were so sweet, tight, laid back in the pocket. The vibe was retro - that old fashion revue type approach that is just pure entertainment...but the music packs virtuoistic punch of the prime cut order! They may be in their 50s and 60s (years old) but thev 41 years they've been strutting their damn funky stuff has surely paid off.
And the crowd was a nice balanced mix. Lots of the young bloods as well as 40 somethings like yours truly.
Just goes to show 'you can't keep a good (real, live) groove down'. It's always going to rise up and shake the butt of the people!!! Go TOP!
Here's some vintage TOP....

What a week! Me and Orson Welles UK Premiere!

Well, tonight I was rehearsing with my bro Mark and and another great musician Roger Goslyn (from Jools Holland Band) in Westminster Abbey! I kid you not!! We're providing music for a theatrical performance in the Abbey this coming Tuesday, the 17th November, called 'Elizabeth Redux'. It's pretty amazing hanging out in Westminster Abbey with my guitar slung across my shoulder.
On my way home (by tube) I changed at Camden Town and saw my first 'Me and Orson Welles' promotional poster. (see photo, with me lookin a bit was 11:20 pm on Sunday night...).

It's only a few days until the London premiere - my home girls, Tracey and Em, are getting excited - as is your truely!
So, a week to remember on the cards - a performance in Westminster Abbey and the UK premiere of Me and Orson Welles. I'm blessed... and I'm grateful....X

My 'YouTube' Channel!

I've been having fun looking back on bits and pieces of my work - all stuff I found on YouTube - and decided I might as well start my very own 'Channel' with all the different things I've done over the years that have been posted. Hope you enjoy it!
