As my first adventure into music, I began trying to play bass guitar during a mild mid-life crisis because all the other family members could play music. Whilst I'll never be a Jah Wobble, Donald 'Duck' Dunn, Jaco Pastorius, or Cliff Burton, I do thoroughly enjoy the playing, and my time at Macclesfield Music Centre was a great experience.

During our recent trip to Venice Janet decided to buy a present for me, as my birthday is less than a couple of weeks after our anniversary.
There was a great deal of choice with our endless walks around the shops while in Venice.

The MMC Big Band were requested top perform for the birthday party of Jean, one of our members. The event took place on 3rd February 2013 at Hollin Hall, Bollington and was recorded on video. I took the resulting video files to produce a DVD.
I'm in there playing bass next to the drummer but usually obscured by Ben on keyboards. Our eldest daughter Emily is also in the band playing clarinet, the young lady wearing the dark jacket on the front row.
