Although we already knew that Damian was making music with the wonderful jazz band Kansas Smitty’s and that there was talk about making an album, Damian’s return to stage with a guitar in his hands has been the most exciting and happy surprise of the year! I was extremely lucky to be at Damian’s first ever gig at Omeara London where our ‘Ginger Elvis’ ruled the stage with his originals as well as some great covers.

So please come join me in the beautiful and inspiring music hall that is The Tabernacle London, and live or re-live ( if you were lucky enough to be there) every single detail from that glorious evening.
