Sponsume campaign update and Jazz North East fundraiser tomorrow

Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to our Sponsume campaign so far for the Wild Flower Sextet – we’re up to £216 already! A full list of names will follow soon but for now check out our progress or get involved by following the link at http://www.sponsume.com/project/wild-flower-sextet-album or clicking in the box on the right.

If you are in Newcastle do come along to a fundraiser I’m involved with tomorrow for Jazz North East. I’m playing first in a quartet with Lloyd Wright (guitar), Mick Shoulder (bass) and Adam Sinclair (drums) at The Bridge from 2pm, then in a quintet with Simon Spillet (sax), Paul Edis (piano) and again Mick and Adam on bass and drums at The Jazz Cafe at 4pm. There are lots of great bands on all day, so it’ll be well worth a visit.

Wild Flower Sextet Crowdfunding Campaign

The Wild Flower Sextet has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Sponsume.com to help raise funds towards our debut album, which we’re recording in February this year with support from the Jazz Services Recording Support Scheme – check out the page at http://www.sponsume.com/project/wild-flower-sextet-album to get involved!

Here is my video pitch for the campaign:

There are all sorts of rewards on offer from donations of £1+ up to £250!

Also come and see us play if you can – we’re at Sela Bar, Leeds, tonight or Wakefield Jazz on Friday.
