A Saturday night spot at London’s famous jazz club, where Frazer and the band showed off jazz arrangements of  his original songs to a full house of music lovers, well aware that little stage has played host to music legends such as crooner Tony Bennett.

There are not many prestige venues that you can pack out with an audience of under a 100. But Frazer did on the night in London’s Tin Pan Alley ‘Indie-Blues’ club.

Guilfest

Guilfest

Frazer and two friends were filling the hot spot on Saturday night. The trio showing exactly what could be done with three acoustic guitars and some great original songs. The set finished just in time for Frazer to catch Brian Wilson and his twenty piece orchestra. And so the festival audience were treated to 2 great contrasting sets in one night.  “Overall an excellent show with original material that was toe-tapping and hand clapping while also managing to be thoughtful and dark.”  Guilfest Review by Bill Carson, USA

It’s not everyone who gets to share the billing with a Rolling Stone!  When Frazer was invited to play the Main Stage at this prestigious festival he was excited to be sharing the billing  with the Stone’s former bassist Bill Wyman and his Rhythm Kings, a band which has featured the likes of Georgie Fame, Albert Lee and Gary Brooker.

The Borderline

The Borderline was a nice watering hole and suited Frazer’s early roots – Country Rock Style.

Frazer’s world travels started with regular appearances at London’s famous Mean Fiddler.

The sign post on stage was a great prop and pointed the way.
