Art and music by Alex and Peter

  21 December 2013

Every weekend, Peter appears live at the Ritz and now and again a customer helps him out by joining in!

Here is what someone at the
Ritz had to say:

"Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you"! 'Live at The Ritz' dinner dance hosted every Wednesday to Saturday throughout December, and every Saturday throughout the year is the perfect combination of gourmet cuisine and swinging tunes. It's so popular that last night this very talented individual decided he would take to the stage for an impromptu sing-song.

The duo have been rather pleased this week by random pieces of their past lives that have appeared. Some of Alex's work in public ownership has been catalogued as part of a BBC project and a recording by Peter's band Casino has surfaced on youtube. The band were all set up to appear on Top of The Pops but a technicians strike pulled the plug on the show. If you MUST have the vinyl, there are several to be found on ebay.

Some of Alex's work in puplic ownership can be seen has been made available on the web. This has been done by the 'Your Paintings' website which aims to show the entire UK national collection of oil paintings, the stories behind the paintings, and where to see them for real. It is made up of paintings from thousands of museums and other public institutions around the country.

My sister Alex is an artist and lives in Hastings.

More properly, to quote her "I can't make a living as an artist so I thought that I might just as well not make a living as a comedian." Her alter ego can be seen in comedic performance on youtube. That mop has a lot to answer for.

She also seems to be branching out as a blogger too.

She specialises in accessible and affordable fine art created in traditional materials and as digital prints. She is also an ace organiser of creative events, happenings, experiences and performance.

Her partner Peter runs his own band and is available for parties, gigs and can be heard on CD.

"I went out to Charing Cross to see Major General Harrison hanged, drawn, and quartered; which was done there, he looking as cheerful as any man could in that condition." from the diary of Sam Pepys.

And so do these mackerel!
