Anyone living in or around Plymouth will have heard of Vince and Al – they are both outstanding musicians and true gentlemen into the bargain. In their own ways they have both been exceptionally generous and supportive of me and for that I’d like to extend a heartfelt “thank you”. Support from fellow musicians is very important in the early stages but support and encouragement from first class established artists in their chosen field like Vince and Al is a whole different thing altogether.
Al has provided bass services for me a few times before I had access to my own band and it was a pleasure to simply plug in and play with a musician who instinctively just knew where things were going. Awesome. Through the “Blues at the Globe” events that Al organises at The Globe Inn, Looe, Cornwall I’ve been lucky to play a couple of times to an increasingly warm and enthusiastic welcome each time. Thank you Al and I’m looking forward to the next one.
Vince. What can I say? One of the best Blues guitarists around. Vince has been unbelievably supportive and has helped me grow both as a performing artist and as a guitarist; from the challenge of being invited to perform onstage at last years Barbican Rhythm & Blues festival with Vince and The Big Combo to guesting with Vince during some of his own shows. Always a challenge, always fun and words simply are not enough. Thank you for everything.
