Since 2018, the UK committed to celebrate Windrush Day every year on June 22, to honor the British Caribbean community. For the ocassion, the Musicians Union invited Millicent to write for the guest blog, exploring the impact that the Windrush Generation has had on her and the British music scene as a whole.
We announced it yesterday and the day before yesterday, yes, but we don’t want anybody to miss it: the contest for getting you favourite song played by Millicent and the band has been extended until the end of the month!
Get the chance to have your favourite song played by Millicent and the band during Not Just Jazz 5. Just purchase a ticket of any type before 11:59 PM of Sunday 30th June to enter the raffle.
‘Superstition’ by Stevie Wonder was one of the highlights of Millicent’s overall amazing performance at the first ever carnival in Leatherhead, which took place on May 27th. It will also be part of Not Just Jazz 5, Millicent’s own annual show. Get your tickets today!
May is almost over, and soon a new musician will be featured in A-Spire magazine. This does not mean that the interview that I had with them after winning the April contest will be taken off the site, but hey, while it is still fresh and in the front page, better to give it a listen, right? 😉
We all go to concerts wishing for them to play our favourite songs, right? Well, in Not Just Jazz 5, you can take a step further: until Friday 14th June, every ticket of any type that you purchase increases your possibilities in our raffle, where you can win the right to choose one song and add it to the set list.
First of all, thanks again for voting for me in the A-Spire competition. It was because of your support that I got featured in the May edition of the magazine. Listen to the audio interview on their website or here.
The doors of O2 Academy Islington open tomorrow at 6:00 PM for ‘Gospel Reggae, event of 2019’, the launch of a brilliant album through an evening of music organized by HotVox and Gary Revelation Dixon. Here, an interview where Gary talks about the concert and he reviews the set list alongside the host, Millissa Jayne.
It has been months since I went to Gayton School, but I did not want to let that lovely afternoon fade in time without mention. I used to teach music at schools, so going back to one to talk about the saxophone and perform for children was quite enjoyable.
