Prince Wows with "just" Piano & A Microphone

This week saw what felt like the culmination of a few years of building momentum within the international Prince community.  Starting with impromptu gigs in London back in 2014 and Prince's foray into social media, links between Prince fans all over London, the UK, Europe have grown and grown.  In the last year or so more and more of us have been lucky enough to make it over to Paisley Park, sometimes catching shows, sometimes not and connecting with communities in Minneapolis.  So many of the fans in this international community have a lifelong dream to see Prince perform in his own place, Paisley Park -  Recording studios where most of his music has come from and a live performance space that Prince uses as his personal playground to try out new ideas and have fun at impromptu gigs enjoyed by the local Purple faithful.

Following a postponed European tour, Prince announced a concert at Paisley Park with advance ticket sales.  This was the first time in over a decade that Prince f…
Interview with Marcus Anderson
Marcus Anderson is in town again.  Over the past eighteen months we've seen him here with Prince, collaborating with Lianne La Havas on a live cover version of Lost & Found at some legendary shows at Kokos in Camden and performing at the iconic Ronnie Scotts in Soho on a version of Purple Rain with a sax solo in place of that famous guitar solo!


More recently he was here with Liv Warfield on her Not Giving Up Tour, which by all accounts really blew people away that were lucky enough to be there.


This time Marcus is back in Soho at one of the Capital's best jazz clubs which is celebrating its 50th year in 2015, The Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho.  He will be playing four shows this weekend, filling the early and late slots for both Friday and Saturday evening.

Marcus took some time out to talk to us about Penny Loafers, musical vibrations, Prince's Vault, singers singing like sax players and sax players playing like singers...

Dubai High





Less than 48 hours after leaving London on a purple high, Prince and 3rdEyeGirl setup shop in the exclusive Pacha Ibizia, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.  By all accounts this was an intimate but explosive gig.  With the crowd close enough to reach out and touch that iconic mic stand the setup sounds like one of Prince's iconic aftershow parties.
Just like the show in London this was a benefir show supporting the work of Autism Rocks, Which was setup by Sanjay Shah.  You can read a great article on the work and inspiration behind the charity here
Unlike the show in London, which saw queues around the block, this gig was a smaller afair with the glamorous crowd turning up fashionably late.  Chilling by the pool, rather than queueing in the cold was the pre-gig preparation









Once again, Liv Warfield was in the house performing Paloma Faith's Only Love Can Hurt Like This.  Other highlights included Pink Cashmere, Empty Room, The Beautiful Ones and an extended version…
