Play it again Sam – Blues on a Grand Piano

Play it again Sam – Blues on a Grand Piano

 

A video with a difference

 

A few months ago I ran into Gary John Norman at a 4N meeting at Norwich.

It turned out to be one of those moments. Apart from being a great chap with a good sense of humour, he happens to be a magical photographer with true vision.

“It’s all in the light”, he tells me!

Just check his site and you will fully understand.

We spent some time talking about the use of video and Gary was keen to give me some insight on what you can do with video if you add some thought and experience. After a while I came up with an idea to include my dear friend Paul Millns

I have known Paul for many years and there is a fantastic story as to how we came together.

In the video you will learn how we came together and what a remarkable chap Paul is. I hope you enjoy it and please get in touch if you would like to find more. Paul is directly contactable on Paulmillns.com. He is on iTunes spotify and a load of other sites

The short story on how I met Paul:

Promoted a concert in Luton, went horribly wrong, kept in touch with PR guy Dan Kirkby, who introduced me to Terry Wogan’s producer Pauly Walters, that led on to a lunch with Tony Bramwell who was a Beatles production manger to talk about a Radio 2 sponsored Concert. He was promoting Paul’s Album When love comes Calling and gave me a CD. Six months later Paul Played at the Norwich Art Centre.

A nice short one that shows Butch giving it some teddy!

 

We had a great day at the Anteros rooms in Norwich. A lovely little venue with Art Galleries and Cafes within. Paul is keen to come an play there, so you never know I may get my old promoting boots out at some point again…. If any of you would like to see Paul, please drop a comment or mail.. Thanks and have a great week!
