Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances Glyn Madden our scheduled Artiste for Feb had to cancel his concert engagements and so whilst we are disappointed we wont be seeing him at KeyNote or on stage again we wish him well and continued success with his other ventures.
We were however delighted to be able to fill Glyn’s date in the programme when we managed to book an artiste we had on the list for a possible show in 2014. Steve Hubble who may have been known to many long standing concert goers played for us on Sunday the 3rd Feb.
Following a 15 year break from the concert circuit we caught up with Steve back in September 2012 when he appeared at the Keyboard Cavalcade Festival at Pakefield. In the past Steve extensively toured throughout the UK playing for Organ Societies, Keyboard Clubs and Festivals. He was particularly noted for his musical arrangements and orchestral style of playing. He also appeared many times on radio including Radio 2 “The Organist Entertains” and Radio WM “Keyboard Magic”.
When we heard that Steve had decided to come back on the circuit with a new setup we really wanted to bring him to the KeyNote audience and were really looking forward to what we knew would be a great afternoon of music in his capable hands.
We were right, it was a show which shouldn’t have been missed! The KeyNote audience took to Steve straight away and he delivered a wonderful programme suited to all musical tastes. Using his own set-up consisting of a Yamaha Tyros 3 and midi keyboard plus pedals the two hours of musical entertainment just flew by. With a few screen images and clips provided by David T., Steve took us from Movies to Musicals, from Latin to Love songs and Big Band to Banjos.
After his final piece of the afternoon many rose to their feet and the hall was filled with shouts for “more”. As an encore Steve left us with a real party piece in that of the well known tune from the film Diliverance – “Dueling Banjos”. As we wished Steve, his wife Michelle and daughter Ellie a safe journey home to Dorchester we left him in no doubt we want him back in the not too distant future!
