    Let Me Entertain You

    “LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU” Tim Paton This is the title of a song by Robbie Williams, but what does the word entertain actually mean? In our own ‘band movement’, it seems that this word is often being redefined. It is becoming quite normal to hear the words entertainment and cheesy in the same...

    Small Band/Ensemble Suggestions Please

    Hello tmp. I know that this subject has been broached before. I am looking at doing some 'reduced' versions of some of my music. I know that there is the "10 Piece" already. Looking around the web, I notice that a "10 piece" varies slightly in instrumentation. Also, if you were looking for...

    New piece for 2007

    First, may I wish all at tMP a very good Christmas season, and all the best for the new year. 2006 is nearly done, and besides meeting lots of tMP friends and aquaintances, I will always remember hearing Elaine singing "My Little Welsh Home" with Wem, and hearing Timbloke play "National...

    It's a shame

    Christmas music is being spoken about, and I always get a little grumpy about something, (I'm aloud to, I'm 55). In 1975, Greg Lake released a Christmas Single called "I Believe in Father Chtristmas", which got to no.2 in the charts. Now don't get me wrong, a fabulous song, which, when I was...

    Audio Samples from TP Music

    Just to let you know that Audio Samples of my music are now in mp3 format. I'm afraid that the scores are not yet on my website, which is more to do with my limited knowledge of FTP than anything else! mp3 samples will of course be sent to you if you email TP Music - details on my website.

    New Superman Theme

    Julie and I were watching TV ten mninutes ago, and we saw an advert for the new Superman film. Julie said, "That theme will be out for brass band soon". This prompted us to wonder how soon it would be, and who would do it. I think there will be at least two, I would even hazard a guess as to...

    Digital Radios

    Julie has had two digital radios in nine months, (one was a replacement), they both overheated and stopped working. I bought one for my daughter, it did the same thing, (including smoke). We bought one for my Mother-in-Law, it is beginning to overheat and cut out. Has anyone else experienced...

    Jazz Music Question

    I heard a song the other day in a card shop. All the music was a selection of mainstream big band. I asked the lady behind the counter what it was, and she didn't know, it was a CD the proprieter had put in the system. Now, I will try to explain it. The singer sounded like a trained soprano...

    A nice story

    I would like to share a nice story with you all. As you know, I sometimes mention what my eighty six year old Dad is up to. I love him to bits, and am very proud of the way he has carried on after my Mother died in September 2004. None of his four kids, grandkids or greatgrandkids live in...

    TV Entertainment License

    Has anyone got any inside knowledge about what this is about? I have read a few lines on it in the local paper, and Paul O'Grady was going on about it, but other than that, I know nothing.

Successful in some of my endevours, along with a fair amount of mistakes which I have had to rectify. So, there I am, minding my own business, when I...

    "It's a small world"

    I am sure that everyone has a story about meeting someone in the most unlikely place, sometimes amusing or just ironic, maybe even uncanny. Let me start this thread off with a story I heard today. Before I go any further, some important background. I was in Wem recently for their spring...
