As part of ‘Friday Tonic’ We’ll be playing in The Royal Festival Foyer on June 2nd 2017 at 5:30pm
Still one of my proudest and scariest moments to date. Whilst on tour with Seal I managed to catch one of my favourite bands, The Time-Jumpers when we stopped in Nashville. They were an incredibly nice bunch of people and gracious enough to let me sit in for a couple of tunes.
We’ll be bringing our own brand of brass hysteria back to ‘Upstairs @ Ronnies’ on April 9th.
