Rach and Andy's Wedding at Liverpool's Malmaison.
I sound engineered for a Take That Tribute act and Alfie (Robbie) recommended me to his friend Rach for her wedding.
Nat saw me DJ and asked me to DJ her wedding.
...I met Rach again at...
...Nat and Mark's Wedding...
...and they were both bridesmaids at...
...Lyndsey and Pauls' Wedding where...
...I met Paul's brother Phil and...
...his fiance Billie. Who I'm playing for in 2016.
I get them used to selfies - I take lots.
Howard Wing impression.
He told me I need more height.
I love weddings where after the wedding breakfast the curtain goes back and I can start playing music straight away.

It was a co-incidence that they both booked me, but it was great to catch up with the newlyweds. Also, it was great to hear their friends take on their musical style as we discussed music at the pre-wedding meeting.

University of Manchester - MAP Team
I've been involved with the Summer Schools dating back to when I was at University and playing at the Hall's Fresher's events, Formal Balls and nights in between.
They were amazing nights, first year of uni, is an important time...
...and I get to re-live it.

At the end of the nigth.
I went to college with Helen, it was great to see her again.
Helen and Dave's music instruction was, all the great stuff you played at our wedding.
Tina and Stu wrapped around Helen.
Tina and Stu's and cake cut.
It's great to play for people so passionate about music. And Stu is.
Dave's head, he stayed near me - he was calling the shots.
I can't take all the credit for it. It just a joint effort- as it should be.
