Here’s a piece of recent press attention in The Evening Standard on a project I’m working on with Dr Andrew Sentance, former Monetary Policy Committee member at the Bank of England:
So, we’re looking out for City business people (Bankers, Tinkers, Tailors and so on -:) who play an instrument and would like to participate in an open mic music jam sessione. We are also looking for a venue in the City to do this amazing event and anyone who might want to help with lighting, PA and so on. How will this work I hear you asking?
- We’ll supply a backline of equipment and some great musicians to support the evening
- I will be bringing my bass playing friend John Howitt, who is a session musician who has played with Anastasia, Celine Dion and Shirley Bassey and a great drummer. I’m sure Andrew will also bring some muso friends
- We will work up a set list of songs that people might like to play in advance but the evening will also be open to more spontaneous contributions. If individuals want to replace one or more of the backline members that’s fine or they can just add themselves as a soloist
- We’re looking to do this easily in Spring to give time for a little bit of mental preparation and incubation
Any questions? Get in touch. For those about to rock the Bank of England, we salute you!!
In the spirit of the event, here’s one of the contenders for the performance:
