2017 Here we come

4 weeks on Norfolk Island over Xmas and NY. 26 degrees most days and only a few days of clouds. Perfect. I got to swim a lot and read 4 books including the Andre Agassi Autobiography “Open”. Loved it. Tayanita and I played a few gigs as well. The Jolly Roger is a fabulous new venue run by Matti Zarb.

Here’s my swim route

Back open the Planet

IMG_2480Two and a half weeks on Norfolk Island over Xmas never hurt anyone. I performed with Pendo and Tayanita on NYE at the wonderful Norfolk Blue Restaurant to a full house of Tourists and Locals. The Sunday Session the week following was lots of fun too.

Back in Sydney for 2016. The Rick Robertson trio is back at Castle Hill RSL for Sunday afternoons and a few early mornings at the brand new Barangaroo tower 2 opening. Very slick place with choice of at least a dozen food outlets in the foyer. Good coffee too. RRTrio Feb 15

This week the Trio was at the Art Gallery of NSW on Tuesday night followed by the usual weekly stint at the 505 with the Funk crew which included Stuart Hunter. I’m out in the harbour tonight and then we’re doing Friday at Hemmespheres where I DJ and play Saxophone.

 

Lots of fun.
