Well as always for musicians, January was very quiet. We're usually too tired after Christmas gigs to move for a month so it's probably a good thing that not too many people try and book parties in January!
From my point of view I've still been busy booking in weddings for myself and for the band for 2016, '17 and even '18! I've played one wedding so far in February, for Rachel & Tony at the Village Hotel in Bury and have one more to play at Thornton(!) Hall Hotel this weekend. Also had 3 gigs so far with the Jonny Cooper Experience this month playing at Bradford Bulls stadium, Tatton Park wedding fair and also a couple of gigs at The Grill On The Square in Warrington. If you've never seen us before then please try and come down when we play. Every night is different as in Saturday just gone where around 1245am we were challenged to play some gangsta rap. We duly obliged with some Warren G/Eminem/Snoop Dogg mash up (minus the swearing of course, we're family men after all).
I've also recorded a professional video of my arrangement of Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran shot by Michael Langley who also took some photos of me, which are now strewn around this website. Have a look at his videography services at www.satinpictures.co.uk
Maton Guitars (of which I play one) even shared the YouTube link (https://youtu.be/OiQNT6hPio0) on their Twitter and Facebook pages so I've gone international this month! A lot of people in China shared it again after that so who knows, maybe I'll be touring Asia soon :)
That's all for now, back to the endless grind of being self employed (my brain never switches off!)
