Principal Aims

 a) To bring a smile to anybody feeling lonely or to help celebrate an occasion during the COVID-19 Lockdown period

b) To raise some money for a variety of charities under increased pressure

c) To provide myself with a pro-active reason to stay creative and occupied with fresh challenges in the absence of live gigs and theatre work.

How it works

If you know somebody who might enjoy a personalised musical greeting to help them celebrate an occasion or just to brighten up any old Wednesday - you can request any song of your choice. Before an agreed deadline I deliver a video file via email of the specially arranged and recorded song along with any message you'd like to include. 

You may also send up to 10 photos which I can include in the video. N.B. there is a minimum donation for this service.

There is no set fee, instead I ask for a donation of whatever amount you feel is appropriate. I collect all the donations and give 50% to a chosen charity. After 3 weeks I donated over £800 to the Southwark Foodbank, and am currently collecting for the Newham Foodbank.

For information on how to donate, just email me using the contact form on this website.

What I need from you

1. The song you'd like (detailing any specific version)

2. The name of the recipient

3. Exactly who the gift is from (e.g. if it's from a certain group of people)

4. Any personal message to include

5. When you intend to deliver the gift

6. Up to 10 photos (optional and subject to discussion)

ABOUT

A highly versatile musical director, arranger, composer and pianist, Bobby’s work has taken him to venues  such as the National Theatre, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, and to tours and festivals  across the UK, Europe, USA and Asia. His work has been featured on Classic FM, Decca Records, BBC One, Radio 5Live, Radio Wales, Comedy Central and Sky Sports. His work ethic and natural, accomplished musicianship have made him a favourite among theatres, record labels, artists and agents.

 

Bobby has an eyesight condition called Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy which prevents him from sight-reading music and carrying out many everyday tasks. However, this gives him a unique opportunity to approach music from a different angle and has helped his aural skills develop to an extraordinarily high level.

He holds a 1st-class BA in Music from Oxford University and trained in Music Production and Sound Engineering at Abbey Road Institute.
