Hi - a Special Welcome to my Site. Musically I'm enjoying being listened to quite a lot on Soundclick.com (the oldest indie music site on the web from around 1997). So it's Best Wishes from Tony in Staffordshire Moorlands, England. Take Care wherever you are . . .
You'll find Music of many styles and Genres from Piano Solos to Keyboard and Synthesiser - I guess this reflects my years of experience (phew!) For the Soundclick Page itself click the above underlined link
My Childhood Area: (Left in 1985).
Photos of Heaton Norris and Stockport on Flickr by Tony William. mouse over the image and then scroll through Photos. Why this? Well a happy childhood and young adulthood is worth looking back on I think. My parents and grandmother lived in Heaton Norris. My mum went to All Saint's School. I went to St Mary's. Of course it's all very different now.
My Music started at age 7 in a place called Heaton Norris in the town of Stockport, United Kingdom. My parents Bill and Alice and Music Teacher Jessie Davies I remember each day. I also remember each day my Aunt, Dance Teacher Joan G. Bates of Stockport for the life time opportunities she gave me working 9 years as her Pianist. I have to mention the Children's Ballet Shows in the Kings Hall, Belle Vue Manchester as part of the UK British Railways Carnival each year plus of course Joan's own shows in this venerable long gone venue.
My Musical career then progressed with various ups and downs. My Band of the era "The Alan Anthony Set" reached highs of 5 Star Hotels and Prestige Functions and lows of empty Pubs on wet winter nights in Tameside :) My years with Pontins Holidays were fun as a Resident Pianist at Prestatyn Sands. Of course Pontins was not a "dump" then! Quite the opposite under Sir Fred's watchful eyes. I also have lost count how many Manchester Working Men's Clubs I played Organ at for Cabaret and Dancing.
But then myself and my wife Susan went on to 40 years of Entertaining Children's and Family Audiences with Magic and Marionette Cabaret - Private Parties, Holiday Venues, Provincial Theatres. We were offered billings on quite major Holiday Resort Shows with our Puppet Cabaret, but always declined in favour of home life, raising our sons and having a very busy Private Party Service. We were known as "Tony and Sue" - and later on as "Ace Parties of Wilmslow". We left Wilmslow in 2015 and had a quite "timely" pre-Covid retirement in November 2019. We live "somewhere" in the very quiet Staffordshire Moorlands area of England now.
Finally can I say a Sincere "Thank You" for finding and visiting my Page here in the enormity of the Worldwide Web.
