Keyboardist with “Mosaic” – a function band that specialises a bit more in the ‘oldies’ style. They’re a great laugh to play with, as they’re all about the entertainment factor. I even get to wear a horse’s head mask and run around with an accordion from time to time… What more could I ask for?!

“Just wanted to say how much I really enjoyed last night. It was probably my favourite gig of all time -made possible by a band on form and totally at ease with itself. However the joyous spontaneity and inventiveness of young James made the evening very special for me and created a wonderful atmosphere which I know captured the hearts of all the audience too. I expect your music tutors will help you develop musically James, but I hope you never lose that amazing creativity and exciting exuberance that we so enjoy and are now coming to expect .We all loved your jokey passages and unexpected sounds and surprises last night. Well done young James -keep it up – you’re a star already!” – Nick Armstrong

“I can honestly say the band sounded the best ever. You made the night and lots of people there went out of their way to say how surprised they were that a live band could sound so good.” – Vaughan Dexter

“I just wanted to send you an email to thank you and the band very much for playing at the Normanby Hotel on Friday night – the music was fantastic! I hope that we will be able to work together in the future.” – Leanne Irvine, Teesside Hospice
