Dec 20: Now Selling New Dutch Grand Piano Shells In The UK

New Dutch Grand Piano Shells for sale!

We’ve been offering Piano Shells for hire for a few years now. However, having had lots of people ask us about purchasing shells, especially during lockdown, we’re delighted to announce that we can now sell them too, as an official Dutch Grand reseller in the UK!

Raise your game as a performer for gigs or video shoots; or choose one for your venue, the legs fold inside, they come with a protective cover, and of course there’s no tuning needed!

Fixed prices for black, white, and red shells, other colours available upon request.

December is probably a great time to get one as we have no idea what will happen to prices after Brexit is confirmed!

Dec 20: Tech Consulting On New Zoom Panto

It’s been an absolute pleasure providing audio consultancy and tech support for this amazing new Zoom musical / Panto, written especially for the Zoom medium and for children with special needs.

It’s called Dream Catcher and opens on Friday 4th December for two weeks!

repmusic provided technical (audio, visual, and Zoom) support for the show alongside live show designer Ash Day, enabling the cast to perform from home and achieving the best visuals and sound possible with the current restrictions, which included a rehearsal run through England’s second national lockdown.

It’s really good fun with a fantastic cast and a nice alternative to the Panto if you can’t get to one this year!

March 2020: New studio video from Re-Versed album

To celebrate the beginning of Spring, we have just released the first studio video from the recording sessions for Robin’s album, Re-Versed. And as it’s Spring, we thought the first video should be Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.

Click here to watch the video on YouTube.

The song was written by Tommy Wolff with lyrics by Fran Landesman. The track features Robin Phillips (vocals, piano, arrangements, producer), Brandon Allen (tenor saxophone), Jihad Darwish (upright bass), and Seb De Krom (drums). The song is featured on the Re-Versed album, which looks at the lost verses of the jazz standards. The album has received fantastic critical acclaim and Robin will be touring the album in Autumn ’20 / Spring ’21.

The song was recorded at the repmusic recording studio and was produced, mixed, mastered, and the video edit all done by Robin Phillips.

Jan 2020: Music Road Trip Documentary & US Premiere

In 2019 Robin undertook the road trip of a lifetime, retracing the path of jazz and blues in America from Chicago down to New Orleans, on a Harley Davidson motorbike. The film coverage from this trip has become a documentary called ‘Back To The Source’.

The documentary was premiered at the Clarksdale Film Festival in Mississippi in January 2020. Whilst back in the US for the premiere, Robin filmed more footage for the final version of the film, including interviewing The Swampers bassist David Hood, and recording with the Dexter Allen Band from Jackson, Mississippi, in the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.
