Back in Newcastle following a truly memorable and utterly fantastic set of European tour dates with Motown legends, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. The level of appreciation from the crowds we played to was nothing short of incredible and hugely gratifying.
Playing piano for these age-defying, classy, iconic ladies has been a real privilege and honour over the past 5 years and their energy levels and ability to command standing ovation after standing ovation, show after show is really something to behold.
Thanks to all the people who came out to see us firstly in beautiful Bilbao, Spain, where we played a sold-out show at the city's fantastic BBK venue. It was then briefly back to the UK for a show before heading off for a two night, three shows residency at the iconic Blue Note Milano jazz club in Milan, Italy. An amazing venue which has hosted many of the most renowned jazz artists from the past 6 decades. Finally, it was back to Spain and this time the gorgeous Catalonian city of Girona, north east of Barcelona, for another sold-out show at the hugely impressive, 1,250 capacity Auditori de Girona theatre. And what an unbelievable audience we had too to round of a truly brilliant little run of dates.
