I am a vocalist with The Almost Big Band and Melange Quintet. I have been singing jazz within a jazz Workshop for over 10 years, originally started by Mike Birch. We performed as Mike Birch's Almost Big Band for 5 years or so, mainly at The Chichester Inn.
Since Mike Birch passed away, we continue to work together as a Workshop band as, The Almost Big Band and perform with varying numbers from 8 -10 musicians. We will be performing again this Jan 18th,2020 at 1 p.m in The Foyer of The Spring Arts Centre, East St, Havant, as part of the Music Bites series there. We have performed there for the last 3 years .
I formed the Melange Quintet, made up of members of the Jazz Workshop in 2017. We also performed at The Spring Music Bites session in March 2017. We will be performing there again at 1 p.m January 12th, 2019.
Melange consists of myself on vocals, saxophone, guitar, bass and drums. We play an eclectic mix of jazz, swing, blues, Latin, contemporary and some of my own songs and arrangements.
I now perform with various small bands locally, with various musicians, performing mostly in pubs and restaurants and occasional private functions. We play some jazz standards, blues,swing,bossas and some original songs and arrangements.
