Have you ever had any on stage disasters?
Performing at festival on an exceptionally hot day, I couldn’t dance as the soles of my shoes were sticking to the floor and in an error of judgement I decided to kick of my shoes only to scald my feet as the floor surface was rubber and extremely hot under the sun.
Though the pain was excruciating I was able to continue performing as fortunately my other half was at the side of the stage and realised what had happened and brought on my walking shoes (shoes I wear when the changing area to the stage are not manageable in 5 in heels) My feet were badly scalded and needed icepacks, but the act following me if memory serves was a Bonjovi tribute who took his shirt off on stage but had to cut his performance short and when he came off stage collapsed. It was exceptionally hot day with no shelter on stage.
What’s been your favourite moment or biggest achievement with the band?
Performing at Sitges on the beach front stage in front of over 5K people
If you could add one piece of equipment or a prop to your show, what would it be?
Quick change booth
Apart from Tina Turner, who are your other musical heroes?
Nina Simone, Dolly Parton – both talented musicians and songwriters
What about current music? Do you have any recommendations for our readers?
Off the top of my head nothing jumps out at me apart from Adele. I don’t get much time to listen to current music (I love Soul, Motown, Northern Soul) but if a song has a good tune, proper lyrics then I’m in.
What about those guilty pleasures? Come on, own up!
I’m very much a Trainers and trousers person but I do like my Bling. I’m not High Maintenance but I love good Caviar, Smoked salmon and Avocado Mmmmm
Finally, do you have a message for the gig-goers of Oldham?
Life is short – Go out, have a good time and enjoy yourselves. I like my audience to be themselves and enjoy the moment, forget the cares if only for the time they are at the show. No one really knows what may be going on for another person Sing, dance but always be kind.
