Terry Miles Live, a real treat

It's nice to go away, and nice to come back home. Yes, some of you have noticed that I was at Terry Miles and family live stream on yooootooob on Tuesday night at the Tamworth Tap. There was some serious piano bashing going on and we all got a real treat. Terry on piano and vocals, Anthony on vocals, guitar, harmonica, and piano, Elsie on vocals and piano, as well as doing most of the filming, and Terry's dad on vocals and guitar. What a talented family they are. A large crowd of fans and supporters gathered for an entertaining evening. A few photo's.

I have been following Terry for some time now. When a new video pops up I get myself a coffee and watch it. I am always amazed at his energy and enthusiasm for bashing out a good tune.

Terry's brother Anthony is also talented and has his own yooootooob channel under the name of Acoustic Milestone. He can provide live acoustic music for all occasions.

Time to relax at the end of the show. Although I went on my own, I came away with some new found friends. The whole family are smashing. I had a brilliant time.




I did a couple of short videos with my camera, I will upload them to yoootooob tomorrow. In the meantime, here is the video which they shot of the whole event, filmed mainly by Elsie, but with Terry taking over when she was giving us a song at the piano. It's almost two hours long.



I stayed at the Travelodge in Tamworth which is five minutes walk to the pub, so that was convenient. I managed to drink a pint and a half of cherry cider which was delicious, but decided to stop at that, didn't want to get a fuzzy head. I combined this trip with visiting my Auntie Pat, and sister, at Burton upon Trent. It all worked out really well. Very enjoyable.

    1. Hi Debi. Yes, the girl with long hair is the one who goes with him to the public piano's sometime, it's Elsie his daughter. I have to say, Terry is very handsome close up. You don't notice his good looks when he is throwing his mop of black hair about. His wife is lovely, doesn't look old enough to have a grown up daughter.

    1. It's a bit too long to watch in one sitting, unless you are a boogie woogie fan. I shall watch it over the next few days. Yes, I had a fantastic time.

    1. It's years since I saw any live music. It certainly livens things up and sets the feet tapping.

    1. No it isn't. I don't know who she is, but she was there early and filmed the whole thing from where she sat. I did some filming but couldn't get close enough. Terry's wife is the lady with the long hair, sat in the alcove in the window, with her mother.

    1. Terry is always looking for places with a piano, he will probably announce where and when the next live show will be. Keep looking at his channel.

    1. This has given me a taste for live music. Maybe I'll check out some local venues to see what's on.
