Over 100 musicians, mostly players from Nick’s multi award-winning bands, including the revered Aylesbury Music Centre Dance Band, many now professional musicians who cut their teeth in Nick’s bands and lessons.

Production shot

Nick’s bands won 30 national & international awards including the BBC Big Band competition 4 times. They performed live on BBC Blue Peter 7 times and international festivals including North Sea Jazz 4 times. They played Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium, BBC Proms in the Park, Edinburgh and Montreux Jazz Festivals.

Nick was a true guru - a master who could unlock and present to me the secrets of the musical world, absolutely without ego, and with a selfless generosity that is beyond measure
- Jules Buckley
Nick was absolutely one of the best educators in the truest sense of the word. He brought forth that which was untapped inside so many musicians with utter enthusiasm, flair and panache with a devil take the hindmost attitude
- Band Member
...this is a rompin’, stompin’, consistently swingin’ big band that can stand its ground in any company. On a scale of one to ten, easily a twelve!
- Jack Bowers (All About Jazz)

Profits go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association, to help support others like they did Nick, and to fund research leading to new understanding and treatments and to help bring a cure for MND closer.
