Liverpool Playhouse Happy Birthday!

Liverpool Playhouse celebrated 100 years of theatre yesterday with events throughout the day and a gala performance of “The Ladykillers” in the evening.
I set up as lounge pianist for attending guests at the drinks reception and again later at the aftershow party where I added some vocals…
“Ladykillers” was absolutely brilliant – very funny, a clever set and great performances by all actors. Everybody loved it and so there was a real atmosphere of celebration the aftershow party. I have to take my hat off to Flock of Seagulls Frank for an inspired singalong and thank Rowena, Amy, Sarah and the rest of the team for making it such a memorable night. Congratulations! And here’s to the next hundred…!!

Pianist Singer at Michele and Bob’s Birthday party

MIchele and Bob were celebrating a landmark birthday in style at their lovely home in Great Sutton. I had previously played at relatives’ weddings and they had picked up one of my cards.
Fortunately the weather on the day was good and guests were able to circulate inside the house and out. With the baby grand set up in their ample conservatory, I played a few sets of background music with the odd boogie thrown in for some guests who had “taken up positions” near the piano.
Bob then connected his impressive sound system up and the evening proceedings began. I’m pleased the weather was so favourable and with so many comfy chairs outside, I’m sure they had a great night too!
