Welcome to Visitors from our Party URL, YouTube, Flickr, and of course, our hosts, Soundclick.
The PIANO requires 100% input and this really is my purpose here; but I guess a few keyboard recordings help to ensure people keep coming back . . . ha-ha . . .
Tony started playing Piano Professionally whilst still at school in Stockport near Manchester, England for an Aunt's excellent Stage School. At age 15 playing in a major 5000 seater venue for Children's Ballet Shows as part of the Annual British Railways National Carnival held in Manchester each year. Then went on to work Manchester 5 Star Hotels as a Pianist and with a popular Function Band. Also Clubs on Hammond Organ. Then as a Resident Pianist for Pontins Holidays which (unlike now) was a highly regarded Company employing 1000s of Musicians and Entertainers. Then it was "all change" alongside wife Sue into the world of Magic, touring Theatres, Holiday Company venues plus 1000s upon 1000s of private parties over decades. We were especially well known for our Cabaret of Marionettes. In Winter 2019 we retired after decades of steady employment - we had never, ever been out of work in our entire careers, missing enforced Covid-19 stoppage by a mere 4 months!
We live in a rural Staffordshire Moorlands town with nearby cycleways, walking trails, Rudyard Lake, plus heritage steam railways, National Trust venues etc. We are parents and grandparents.
