All You Need Is Love

2015 has got off to a roaring start, with 3 sell-out concerts at the Sydney Opera House of a brand new show that I've been working on. Titled "All You Need Is Love", it's a wonderful tribute to the Beatles, complete with a 38-piece orchestra, 7-piece rock band and 4 incredible vocalists: Jack Jones, Ciarin Gribbin, Darren Percival and Jackson Thomas. Despite having an absolute ball with all these guys on stage (including a bit of impromptu kozak dancing), the real treat for me was delving into the depths of all this great music and writing arrangements for over 30 classic Beatles songs, refreshing and updating them whilst paying homage to the great work of George Martin. Sadly, in what I can only describe as a case of rock 'n' roll antics, my shiny new baton suffered its demise by snapping in half at the end of the 2nd show. At least it went out on a high note...
