Best Moment On Stage:
– Hard to say… The Nantwich Jazz ‘n’ Blues are always good gigs. I think I’d have to agree with Steve our guitar man, Nakatcha 2010 was awesome. I was a keen 18 year old at the time, the crowd was jam packed into the venue to the point where nobody could move never mind dance! But man, what a vibe.
Most Embarrassing Moment On Stage:
Blozone, Albright Hussey 2009, Wedding. During the “brass choreography” bit of “Let’s stick Together” (Roxy Music), the table that I was standing on collapsed causing drinks to fly (mostly red wine) all over a brand new white carpet. I ended up with a busted lip and the band was billed £45 for the drinks and broken glass. There was also a booze soaked digital camera to top it all off! The owner wasn’t best pleased and wanted to bill us for the full price of the carpet! Good job our drummer at the time was a lawyer… No more dancing on tables at that venue!
