Wounding Song: Video 2

Between June 4th-7th, 2008 I performed at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre in the world premiere of Jeff Galea's Opera "Wounding Song".

Guitar fans would find the work of interest because the Opera features guitar as the central instrument in the orchestra! This is possibly a world first for an opera. In the hands of capable composers like Jeff Galea the guitar has a bright future!

Foster and Jackson "Heart and Soul"

In mid 2007 I played guitar on a demo DVD for Wayne Foster and Patrick Jackson: "Music from the Heart and Soul".

Wayne and Patrick have been singers with famous and internationally acclaimed groups including The Coasters, and Billy Washington's: The Drifters. As members of these groups both Wayne and Patrick have toured and performed from coast to coast in the USA with appearances in Las Vegas and Reno, throughout South East Asia, New Zealand and in the major cities in Australia. They have shared the stage with music greats including Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, The Ink Spots, The Platters as well as the revered Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.
