Hong Kong Football Club 2014

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly Christmas & the New Year comes around and like everyone else I always eat too much especially on the chocolate front.

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly Christmas & the New Year comes around and like everyone else I always eat too much especially on the chocolate front. The kids are always happy and of course Santa stops off at our house to spread his festive cheer.

For the last 6 years Christmas has also been a time for me to prepare for my annual Hong Kong event, yes you guessed it in Hong Kong, a long way for an event I know but always a very special event to do and it takes me away from my primary role as a Wedding Singer.

Now if you have ever been to Hong Kong you will know that it’s a long flight and if you’re very lucky like me you get to split it in two with a stop off at Doha for some retail therapy.

I digress, once in Hong Kong I get a couple of days to acclimatise and then we are on, and this nice little snap is my first look at what’s to come and what I have flown 5000 miles for.

The event is Hong Kong Football Club’s New Year’s Eve Gala and is attended by 600 guests, the guests are lovely, really friendly and I have gotten to one or two over the years.

It’s always nice to meet up with the bands that I work with for soundcheck on the day especially the London band, all true professionals who know how to work an audience with some classic and contemporary tunes.

Before you know it it’s Showtime and time to get the party started, I warm the guests up with a little swing and classic Rat Pack tunes that everyone knows.

Then it’s band time, before you know it the night is well and truly underway.

And the New Year is upon us, whilst it’s a fantastic experience performing on the other side of the world at a brilliant event, I can’t help but miss my family at home and am always mindful of them when I’m here, as soon as I’m off stage I run to the Skype machine to let them share in the celebrations.
