Last weekend I was hanging out and playing at Greenbelt Festival in Cheltenham. It was one of the most fun weekends of my life. I was asked to be the Last Orders house band, which meant that I got to play a couple of my songs to around 2,000 people every night at this late night chat/music show-type-thing. 2,000 people. I normally play gigs to around 20 people. So thank you for having me, Last Orders team. And thank you for asking us to play a Katy Perry cover every night for three nights in a row. I love Katy Perry.
I also got to chat to Rob Bell, duet with Duke Special, and play a full-length set on the Monday to 300 people with loads of you singing along. Again, thank you Greenbelt. I don’t get to do that every weekend. It was very humbling indeed and a lot of fun. A LOT.
Lastly, I wanted to thank my band for joining me for the weekend: Ben Price (guitar), Duncan Howsley (guitar), Robin Pearkes (bass), Simon Bray (drums), Joe Rodwell (trumpet), Steven Troughton (trumpet) and Jon Spanyol (trombone). They are all lovely, talented young men and you should definitely say hello to them all.
And that’s it for another year. See you at #gb12!
