Glad to be Grey

Do you have a charity you’d like to do a fundraising gig for? Would you like to put me on in your village hall? Do you have a theatre venue? Would you like a house gig? Do you have a slot at a festival?

I have a one man show I’m calling “Glad to be Grey”, an entertainment of self-written songs, monologues and stories for baby boomers and beyond – in other words, my own generation. I won’t be performing greatest hits, but I will be setting out to entertain with humour, nostalgia and a very occasional rant. The idea is to entertain people who don’t really know my general body of work. I am only thinking of the period April to October, then I will hibernate again.

I’m willing to consider anything, but would prefer it to be within the counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Cheshire, West Midlands, Staffordshire, Gloucester, Merseyside and anywhere in Wales. But feel free to contact me wherever you are on

Audience feedback on “Glad to be Grey” gigs

Absolutely fantastic! I have not enjoyed an evening so much for years.

A superb evening’s entertainment.

We enjoyed your music and your take on life, it bought back some happy memories of our childhood, you made us laugh

The feedback I have received since the concert has been brilliant. People who had not heard of you before the concert, and only came because of the charity, have told me that if ever I do it again they would bring 6 or 8 more people. The fella across the road, came up to me the day after, and said how much he had enjoyed the concert. This, coming from a fella who can find fault with everything. He described you as a true entertainer.

I know many of you won’t be able to come to these gigs as you’re too far away. However, if you would like to participate in one way a donation to the Katherine House Hospice would be very much appreciated. My mother spent her final days in a hospice and it is a charity worthy of all our support. You can donate on line. Please tell them it is in support of my gig and we’ll announce the sum raised during the evening.
