Just performed at a private wedding function and now heading down to the venue to finalise set-up to perform with the band at tonight’s late-night Cancer Society “Relay for Life” concert. And it’s raining hard.
My wife and I attended the Simply Red concert at Church Road Winery in Napier. Just before the concert I recognised bass guitarist Steve Lewinson standing nearby, so I walked over and introduced myself and we got to talking about music. Steve is very much in demand on bass guitar and has worked with Herbie Hancock, Sade, Annie Lennox, Eurythmics, Kylie Minogue, George Michael, Anita Baker, Massive Attack, Joss Stone, Jimmy Cliff, Beth Orton, Bootsy Collins and Amy Winehouse. Steve and his brother Pete (drummer for Simply Red) also have their own successful production studios based in London.
