    I have to say that for anyone who has not met Steve, you really should go to this and meet him... he's a superstar.

    As well as being simply outstanding on Bass, he's a top character, full of wit and is great fun. I guarantee that anyone attending will enjoy meeting Steve.

    : when you see him, please say that I send my regards.

    Hopefully he'll be showing off his circular breathing technique. Mates in the States who have been to his masterclasses there never stopped talking about it! :D

    I've been lucky enough to attend one of his masterclasses, and he is amazing! His natural ability is outstanding (and did make me slightly jealous) and the way he communicates is excellent. I'd recommend it to anyone. And if you're going to practice the circular breathing thing... do it over a sink!!

    Why is it that every time Steve Sykes comes into our area I'm tied up elsewhere? I'd love to be there, but we're carolling in Sloane square all day :-(
