Making someone’s special day even more special – WHY I love my job :)

Jul 22, 20150 CommentsUncategorized

Today a lovely retired navy officer booked my jazz trio for his 90th birthday party.
He told me on the phone he had many bands contact him about the booking, but “I had that special thing” & he loved my voice so him & his wife are delighted I can make it & sing at the party to which he invited all other navy soldiers who fought for Britain in WW2.

Last week, a lovely couple asked me to sing at their beautiful wedding set in a Hampshire castle. They chose the songs & are very excited about my jazz duo making their day even more special.

In moments like this I feel truly blessed & honoured :). It is not easy to be a freelancer & combine sales & acting work with my jazz schedule: book musicians, organise paperwork, accounts and all. I do not have sick leave or holiday pay and sometimes working 27 hours a day can be tough 😉 But there are moments like this when I know all the sacrifices I made are more than worth it!

Thank you all for booking my jazz band for all your incredible special events – it is always an honour to be part of your day and making you even happier.

With love,
