The 28th of May saw our debut at the Hay Festival . I borrowed a friend's car and drove myself, two authors, a poet and a cat from Kensington to Wales. We listened to Dvorjak, Sly and the Family Stone, Prince and Radio 4.
Our concert went down a storm with about 200 people in the audience we were given a great welcome and a warm reception on stage. I love Hay-on-Wye - The festival was such a buzz, inspriring, exciting and everyone in good spirits. What an atmosphere and we ACTUALLY saw the back of Rob Lowe's head - he was on his way to a waiting helicopter. Not for him - a four drive on the M4 !
Then on Monday 13th June Jeremy and I performed to an audience of 850 at Cadogan Hall for an Intelligence Squared evening. We were the support Act for Maz Jobrani, the famous Iranian American Comedian. I must admit I'd never heard of Maz Jobrani but 5 mins googling told me this man is HUGE and very famous (oops)
I can also verify, Maz is a cool guy to hang out with too and he knows how to merchandise. Alas there aren't plans afoot yet for Kiss & Tell t-shirts or mugs but I will let you know when they go into production.
So far then, a good season for Kiss & Tell and the song I wrote with Jeremy "Toy Boy" was played on Desmond Carrington's show on Radio 2 last Friday - Hurrah !
Melinda and Jeremy perform at Cadogan Hall.
