The “All Stars” were born when good friend Peter asked me to play at his Birthday party – my regular band weren’t available so I hand-picked a group of musicians who I knew had the experience to come up with the goods and ‘get in the groove’. It was a great night, Peter loved it and I had a fantastic reaction from the other party-goers.

Laura was on vocals for "Living Large" at a James Bond 007 themed Ball, I was struck by her sweet style and personality.

Classically trained, suave and sophisticated, but his most memorable musical experience was playing with the ‘Essex Youth Jazz Orchestra’ on Clacton Pier when the wind carried his sheet music into the Sea -
He was literally blown away by the experience!
