What is "Hats Off" ?
Hats Off is what can only be described as an experience in life - and what a great one!
I am indebted to my wonderful wife Julia for encouraging me to audition as keyboard player for Freddie and the Dreamers, also grateful to Freddie(a lovely man) for having me and teaching me so much about the business and then comes Nick Foti. He was the foreman and rhythm guitarist for the Dreamers and also a solo artist in his own right. We became firm friends as well as fellow Dreamers and when Freddie retired in 2000 due to ill-health, Nick and I formed our duo "Hats Off". It was a great success and we enjoyed many a happy night giving repeat performances at venues round the UK for three years. We played for two summer seasons at the world-famous Winter Gardens in Blackpool, UK. www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk and were even flown to Florida to perform at a couple of private parties. Nick resides in the UK with his lovely wife Diane, is a busy solo artist going under the name of "Nico" www.nico65special.2ya.com and is also the proprietor of Coach House Recording Studio.
