Great Music in Birmingham

Hi there lovelies! I have to say it’s been a long time since I’ve played an open mic night…but I haven’t played out at all in Birmingham yet and this one was suggested by my good bass playing friend Kev (Reg) Cooke. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was certainly one of the best open mics I’ve ever played. The bar for music seems to be high here in Brum…which is fantastic. There was gorgeous uke and mandolin playing, a fantastic beatboxer, even some fab jazzy hip-hop at the end. One of the stand-outs of the night for me was Louise Petit. Wow, so so lovely. You just need to see her for yourselves! She’s playing a free gig at the Yardbird Jazz Club in Birmingham on December 7th, so go have a listen so you can agree with me wholeheartedly! 😉 Plus I believe that my lovely friend Kevin Cooke might be playing bass at that gig as well. He played with me last night on two songs and I am so looking forward to more! Perhaps we’ll work out that jazz set I’ve always wanted to do.

I’ve also heard about a music night that happens on Sundays called The Free Love Club at The Island Bar so I’m looking forward to checking that out as well. So yes, YAY. Till next time! x
