On Monday, Simon D’souza regrettably died from his brain tumour. We’ve talked within the band and I know we sadly miss our friend, but respect Simon’s wishes to celebrate his life fondly and cheerfully.
We were delighted to have again performed Simon’s music at The Bruswick on Sunday, 11 May as part of the Brighton Fringe. Susan — Simon’s wife — contacted us to say how great she thought the gig was and that Simon would have loved it! We’re all the more thrilled that Simon’s mum and sister were also there. We hope those of you to whom playing was such a joy also enjoyed Simon’s music. Thank you! We love playing it and will continue to play Simon’s music.
Simon’s CD “Navigation” has sold well and has received an excellent review (more on this later). All money from selling “Navigation” is shared between The St Peter and St James Hospice, The Brain Tumour Charity and Scope. We also again thank Yellow Fish Hutchins Foundation, Yellow Fish Studios and Quiet Money Studios for their generous support in the making of this CD.
I’m sorry to have taken so long to post these words — I’ve been remembering all our missed friends.
