It was a pleasure and an honour to perform at The Northern Ireland Chamber Champions Dinner at The Waterfront Hall on the 4th April 2016. This was the first business event held in the new multi-million pound facility at The Waterfront Hall.
Irish tv and BT Sport presenter Craig Doyle was the host for the evening. Irish rugby Legend Paul O'Connell was the guest speaker.
I play at the drinks reception on stage as guests arrived into the new reception area which overlooks the River Lagan. Just before Irish Rugby Legend Paul O'Connell was welcomed onto the stage for his interview I performed on the main stage. Over 900 business guests attended the function.
Thank you to Northern Ireland Chamber for inviting me to play at the prestigious event.

Here is a wedding video produced by Michael Foster.tv of Gavin and Gillian Jackson's special day. I played at their wedding ceremony and during/after their meal at The Dunadry hotel. It was a pleasure to be a part of their special day.
My good friend Gavin Jackson got married to Gilly Gourley at the Dunadry Hotel recently. Having been minded in Gav's...
Congratulations to the beautiful Margaret & Martin on your recent wedding at Lusty Beg Island. Thank you for inviting me to play during your evening reception meal ♫♪. Best wishes for your future together <3!x
This is from a practice session. I also play the upbeat pop version. This one is more subtle, with just a piano backing which is perfect for civil ceremonies. I've played it a lot during the signing of the register and it enhances the romantic atmosphere. ?
Here are a few photos from the 'Growing something brilliant' event at Belfast Harbour Commissioners.
It was hosted by BBC Northern Ireland TV reporter & presenter, Mark Simpson.
I played at the champagne drinks reception as guests arrived and during the meal. I then played a few pieces after dinner, roaming around the tables. I was honoured to be invited to play by The Northern Ireland Chamber & throughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you to Focus Av for the sound.
I was invited to play at the wedding of Eamonn and Paul and it was one such an amazing evening.
I played on the stage throughout the dinner and did some walking around playing to pieces like 'Human' by The Killers, 'Past the point of Rescue', 'Galway Girl' and others. Eamonn had requested lively music for during the meal. I emailed Eamonn and said that there are usually a few dancers amongst the guests when I am walking around playing. I maybe underestimated the number of guests who would be dancing :D I played after the starter/ in between courses and the video below was of my own instrumental version of 'Human' by The Killers.
Thank you David for the video from your phone as it really captures the atmosphere of Paul and Eamonn's wedding. Eamonn, Paul and the guests were on top form and full of energy! They certainly know how to enjoy themselves! http://youtu.be/VGcx2ccGWIk
After the desserts I continued to play upbeat pop and dance covers with the odd Irish tune thrown in. I was playing on the dance floor surrounded by Eamonn, Paul and the guests. I finished with 'Lord of the Dance' and 'Time to say Goodbye' and was so pleased that there were so many guests up dancing and enjoying the music. I really fed of everyones' energy and they were an amazing group of people! The evening band were fantastic, 'Fraggle Rock', a Galway based wedding band. Fraggle Rock Galway wedding band
Thank you Eamonn and Paul for inviting me to play at your wedding. Congratulations and best wishes for your future together. Thank you also to the staff at Trim Castle, Co. Meath, Eire. It is a beautiful hotel to stay in. I had a room with a view of the castle ruins. The castle was actually the one from the film 'Braveheart'.
