Jubilee Celebrations in Trafalgar Square

5th June 2012


Simon was invited to play for the official Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Trafalgar Square with top session band Zig Zag. The musicians and singers comprised a who's who of London's session scene with singers Vanessa Haynes (Incognito), Kristen Hosein and Victor Bynoe along with musicians including Van Morrison's musical director Paul Moran.

There was a real party atmosphere as the band played memorable songs from all six decades of the Queen's reign with dancers dressed in period costume doing routines and teaching a very excited audience some dances from the period. The huge screen relayed all the action from the event and Jubilee highlights live via a feed from ITN, who covered the event from start to finish.
