  • nickheyward@comftybold Yeah Gavin, way too slow for an audience. Qigong on the other hand βœ‹πŸ½ Actually, I can't wait to introduce dance to my sets and to life. One of the most moving things I've seen on stage was at The Place in Kings Cross. Just a couple on stage weaving around two hanging light bulbs πŸ’‘πŸ’‘Absolutely beautiful, moving and an inspiration. http://www.theplace.org.uk/
  • nickheyward@comftybold I like that you think our little gathering is arena sized, Gavin. Although dinky is more potent in delivery. Saying that, one of my.... mmmmn, how shall I word this.... most potent performances on stage to date was with a tiny nylon string Paloma guitar. I had to raise it up to my chin to be heard to sing Love Plus One. The whole of Wembley Arena sang along, which sounded awesome! So yeah, maybe this little gathering could work in an arena. As for toy cars, I will see what pops out of my memory box. I went pretty quickly from Dinky & Corgi to Hot Wheels and straight into real flameouts at Santa Pod Raceway 🏎πŸ”₯ I was totally obsessed with drag racing. My brother gave me that guitar btw. He gave me The Doobie Brothers, too. Well, actually he didn't. I did the dinky brother thing and put it on while he was out being big brother πŸ˜‚
  • comftybold@nickheyward well, it can be any size on the Internet! 😁 I can see the follow up to the jazz Lp could be 'shape up and dance with Nick'. I love a dance, me. I was a Mod for a time in my youth, which prized good moves; then years later I trained as a flamenco dancer for a while, which was fun! Actually, warming to the dance theme, I recall you did a couple of very neat spins on TOTP when you did 'warning sign' - I think you're probably a natural. πŸ‘Œ

  • comftyboldMatchbox (standard and hot wheels) were the ones for me although I inherited a a load of Dinky etc from a cousin a few years older so had aesthetic confusion! The only toy car I still have from my youth is, oddly enough, a Corgi - a fetching and now slightly battered orange Heinkel bubble car, which is on my instagram. Makes me smile 😊
  • becky.florenceDefinitely can see that on `over the weekend' video too, and some on TOTP nobody's fool. Definitely a natural with catchy moves. β™‘
  • steve_kemsley@nickheyward when did you play Wembley Arena @nickheyward? Ps I do Yoga 3 times a week....x
  • becky.florenceJust thinking that Ronnie Scotts would be a great little gathering venue. β™₯ the kick of love.
  • comftyboldWhen the jazz happens Ronnie's will be the perfect venue. 🎷
  • nickheyward@steve_kemsley Early two thousand and something. Just before Christmas. Magical night. I needed to meditate before going on stage. My kids were still outside in the freezing cold as I was about to go on, and I'd just read the riot act to the tour manager. He took it brilliantly, I had a lot of respect for him. Anyway, I was still upset so I took a quick breather backstage and drifted on frontstage like a leaf from a leaf blower. Meditation/yoga/connection etc all works wonders, especially being in our businesses hey, Steve. Golf is good practice, too. Hopefully I'm going to learn this particular form one day from Sara's father. Looks like you play golf more than three times a week when you're over here. β›³οΈπŸ’†πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ I know you haven't asked for a book recommendation, but Zen In The Art of Artery is one of my favourites. Bullseyes and holes in ones πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen_in_the_Art_of_Archery
  • nickheyward@comftybold Trained as a flamenco dancer? That's fantastic! πŸ•ΊπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ» I'm ok at improvising, off the cuff style swivelling... but I'm going to learn to waltz for my wedding. Wiggling around like a caterpillar in front of friends and family just isn't on πŸ›πŸ˜‚
  • nickheyward@becky.florence It would, Becky. There's some jazz on this new album 🎷
  • nickheyward@comftybold Or the 606 in Chelsea πŸ‘ŒπŸ½
  • comftybold@nickheyward yeah, did flamenco for about five years (whether I could still I don't know!) but it was a challenge moving from just doing my own thing to that sort of highly disciplined precision. Flamenco is like jazz in that you have to know that precision before you can improvise. Talking of venues, 606 is excellent. You could really get your inner Bill Evans on there. 😊
  • comftybold@nickheyward waltz is a lovely idea, better than that British male non-specific shuffle 😁
  • becky.florence@nickheyward Some jazz on the album is exciting ! I have recently seen James Pearson, amazing. On a more funky theme, I have just discovered that there was an extended LP , haircut exclusives, only released in the US I think. Extended Ski Club is just awesome, including the intro thunderbirdy voice. Wish the extended ski club was on CD somewhere. It must have been so fun to play. β™‘
  • steve_kemsley@nickheyward ok I'll get it, if you get Springsteen's. When Sara's dad teaches you we will play in the FLORIDA sun all being well. X
  • nickheyward@steve_kemsley Done! I think it will help us with our swings and roundabouts ☺️
