The Piano Orchestra

OK – latest developments in the T-Mobile Superband Bonanza…
Today Josh asked us to come and join him and bunch of other musicians in the Half Moon pub in Oxford to jam a new song that had been written for the campaign called “I Wanna Feel You Move”. It was a small pub and full to the brim with guitarists, singers, percussionists and pianists. I was rather delighted to find myself part of a frankly formidable Piano Orchestra (OK, there were only three of us – but that constitutes an orchestra in my opinion). Afterwards, George and I were filmed walking along the street texting friends as if on the way to the jam. Luckily I have a degree in Drama and the skills I learnt whilst at university meant that I was able to very convincingly “text” my “friend” – even though, in reality, I wasn’t actually writing anything at all.
For the second time in a row, the jam was attended by a harpist. Most impressed by this. Harpists are practically an endangered species these days.
Think the first ad will start airing soon…..

Chris & George on their way to the jam. It really looks like I'm texting, doesn't it?! OK – latest developments in the T-Mobile Superband Bonanza…
