Really looking forward to tomorrow lunchtime (28 July). Along with a few others (Pete King, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll and David Preston) I’ll be playing with my bass teacher, mentor and long-time friend, Peter Ind at Ronnie Scotts in celebration of his 85th Birthday. Going to be a wonderful, chilled out party. Hoping to catch up with lots of old friends.
Peter is a truly great individual and a real supporter of the music. Also a great supporter of the young people coming through our Tomorrow’s Warriors programme. Such an honour to be invited to share the stage with him. Good thing I’ve been practising…!
Here’s the official blurb:
PETER IND the internationally renowned double bassist will be playing with Ian Shaw (Vocals/Piano) and David Preston (guitar) in what has become a regular and innovative group since the recording of Ian’s Abbey Road album. For this special lunchtime celebration of Peter’s 85th birthday there will be some special guest spots – Liane Carroll (vocals/piano), Peter King (alto sax) and Gary Crosby (double bass).
This is really going to be special – various musicians from the different generations that Peter has worked with will join him for some interesting guest spots – including a unique double bass duo with Gary Crosby. And you don’t even have to pay the congestion charge or be red eyed by the time you leave.
If you can, come along to see us. Click here for booking info. Hope to see some of you there. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETER!
