L-Fest 2015


I've just got back from L-Fest in Uttoxeter, where as well as performing in " All The Nice Girls" with my partner, Ali Child I was on the Green Stage for BoiBox. It was the first time I've been to L-Fest and I though it was a fantastic event. I thoroughly recommend it for next year. Everything about it was quality, from the artists and performers to the organisation of the festival. Well done Cindy Edwards and everyone else who made it happen. I'm delighted to have been part of it.

March and April 2015



I was delighted to appear at two recent gigs in March and April. First up was the March BoiBox. The Boi-ing 747 theme was a good opportunity to sing the ever popular "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Come Fly With Me". I love Frank Sinatra, so any chance to swing out is taken with gusto!

Then I  appeared at the Fabulous Fifties Evening. My fifties-style lounge singer set opened the show, and the fabulous Ade Harvey and the Stuntmen and DJ Lonesome M made sure that the keen Jivers and Lindy-Hoppers stayed on the dance floor until the close of the event. It was a very successful evening with over £1000 raised for aid to Zanzibar dentistry.

Once again I was absolutely delighted to appear at Boibox Christmas Jumper 2014. Adam 'All & Apple Derrieres are wonderful hosts, and their version of 'The Snowman' brought the house down. (Adam looked so cute in his pyjamas!)


Thanks for having me guys - I love this gig! xx

International Women's Festival - Skala Eressos

Well it's hard to believe that just 3 weeks ago I returned from yet another sojourn in my favourite holiday village Skala Eressos.

For the third year running I performed at the International Women's Festival. A wonderful event that has regular visitors returning to year after year.

This year the highlight event, The Fashion Show, was hosted by Brighton's own Nicky Mitchell alongside Joanna Savva, a prominent member of the local community and patron of the festival who left her customary post behind the scenes to step into the spotlight for the first time.

Brighton Fringe May 2014

I had a fab time at TheBrighton Fringethis year. This was an opportunity to perform to festival goers who had selected my gig from the many publicised in the official fringe promotional material. The audiences consisted of many who had never seen me before, which was great for me in terms of raising my profile. And I got some really great feedback from them. A deal with the venue meant that admission was free to this event, but one man went out of his way to offer me £20 at the end of my set because he thought I was more than worth it!

Marching Time With A Spring In My Step

I've had an amazing last few weeks doing some wonderful gigs with some of my favorite people.

First up wasCharity Cabaret  on 22nd Feb atThe Basementin Kensington Street Brighton. I was delighted to be part of a brilliant line-up that included TheShort & Girlies,Hannah Brackenbury,Lara A King,Jan Allain, and was headlined byClaire Summerskill.
The near-to-capacity audience were treated to a memorable night of entertainment that raised £900 forBrighton Women's Centre. Well done to

No rest for Ronnie, but a wicked time had by all!

Well following my sojourn in Lesvos, I returned to a very busy schedule of events, and I can only now draw breath and find time to update my blog. 
 
First up was theKenric Brightonevent at theThistle Hotel. This was the first such event put on by the recently-formed Brighton branch. it was well supported by members from far & wide and they showed their appreciation by singing along and dancing  to my set and then carrying on until the music stopped close to midnight to a fabulous selection of memorable tunes from

Sun, Sea & Sappho Women 2013

 
I've just got back fromThe International Eressos Women's Festival in Lesvos, Greece.
 
What a great time I had:
 
On Tuesday I performed at the Aeolian Village Poolside Bar, and then on Wednesday an impromptu performance, encouraged by Jazz & Blues performer Nicky Mitchell who was hosting at Roots Bar, followed by the highlight of the week for me which was opening theFashion Show, on theFestival Main Stagein the open cinema in the centre of Skala Eressos.
 
It was a fantastic event, the place was packed to the gunnells with gorgeous women who gave me an incredible reception and were really in a party mood.

Busy! Busy! Busy! Almost no time to blog!

Well it's been a seriously busy last few weeks, and my blog is a bit tardy because of it!
 
First up was my regular slot atThe Grosvenoron 21st July. Although I was competing with the glorious sunshine that beckoned people to the beach rather than staying indoors, a few trusty regulars made the effort to attend, and we all had a really lovely time. I threw in a few Matt Monro numbers by special request from my special fans. Thanks guys, you know who you are!
