"I have a sweet tooth for song and music. This is my Polish sin."       Pope John Paul II


I have been involved in singing and musical operettas since an High School - singing in everything from Gilbert & Sullivan musicals to interschool choir evenings.

I co-founded “THE JAM”, a musical evening, which took place once a month on the Natal South Coast and ran for 15 years. THE JAM is/was perhaps best known as a platform where the best of South African original music was show-cased, as well as gave a platform for new and emerging musicians to perform their original music and songs to a listening and appreciative audience.

 

I'm most definitely an aural person! 


Presently I'm working on a piece entitled "On a Lighter Note". A fun, witty show about the five various personalities there are in the world - and yes, we all fit into at least one of them! 


 Soireé at Leonardo Gallery in Pretoria:



 

 Piano at the Winehouse:

Southbroom, KZN

A spectacular piano evening was held at the home of well known Southbroom locals, Paul Reid Robertson and Haydee Bothma. All pianists played on their gorgeous ‘baby grand’ for a night of classy entertainment. 


Fine piano playing; fine singing, fine finger food and fine surroundings was delightfully mixed into a delectable and outlandish brew.


The Line-up for the evening included some extraordinary piano talents:

- Noel & Judy Bothma from Durbs: some will remember this highly talented couple from their days of playing at the Edward Hotel. Jazz was their choice for this performance.

- Tony Arberg added an exotic foreign touch by playing a dash of Cuban classical with a dollop of Chopin.

 

- Well known piano tuning master, Brian Titshall, performed and gave a taste of what he does best. (We were assured the baby grand was well tweaked, tuned and in show room condition on this night - thanks to Brian)

Barbie Meyer & Jonathan Brauteseth teamed up to offer both haunting and playful duets from everything from Evita to Rod Stewart… they added a somewhat effervescent touch to the night.

Roger Seldon, freshly back from Canada performed some original, experimental piano pieces - with a touch of the ‘unexpected’! 

Deon de Beer was our competent  'Sound Man' for the evening.

Paul and Haydee sponsored the food for the evening. The Blind Society was the charity of their choice, so all ticket monies received went to sponsoring a guide dog. The musicians for this night also kindly donated their time and talents for the cause.

Contact Paul on 082 652 0919.

Solo Singing

The guitar is my choice of accompaniment
