Ronnie Scott’s a couple nights ago was a really good show. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get hold of any video footage, but hopefully this video will make up for it. It’s a visual from my performance at my graduation ceremony last year. I obtained a first (the reason why I went to uni in the first place) and was asked by my lecturers to perform for my fellow students and their parents at Leeds Town Hall. Of course, I wasn’t going to do this without some sort of live element, so I pulled in Samson and Joe from The Street Orchestra to dabble a little percussion and guitar respectively. Not gonna lie, this was potentially one of the most awkward performances I had been asked to do, but I made it work, and thankfully the crowd were receptive to a little bit of Hip Hop in the early afternoon. PS, notice how their soul clap is so ridiculously on point; I guess that may be because it was a hall full of music lecturers, music graduates, and the odd musical parent.

 

 

 

Wow, what an experience. The main stage at Roundhouse, where the likes of James Brown and Jimmy Hendrix have also graced. This is something I’ve been waiting for since I first played with The Street Orchestra in the Studio section of Roundhouse. Of course, last year I played the Outdoor and Cafe stages, as well as the Theatre for the Emerging Proms, but this was the big one.

I’m so thankful to everyone who made it happen, and I mean EVERYONE. Roundhouse staff, Turning Point staff, the band, my friends and my supporters (and anyone else who feels they have helped me but I forgot to mention).

There’s gonna be some video footage up soon, but in the mean while, here’s a couple of snaps:

Talent always shines through and this was demonstrated in Chris Brown’s incredible BET Awards performance last night. He’s already done similar tributes many times at his own shows, but this has got to be the one that re-ignites a career in tatters after the Rihanna controversy.
