Singer/song-writer/musician James Sayer returned to where his talents began to flourish, his former secondary school, Windsor High School and Sixth Form, to give a truly magical live performance last Tuesday evening (17th June).
 
James and his band performed songs written and composed by James alongside covers of well know popular songs, such as Bennie and the Jets.  Special mention should go to Lisa Grahame, saxophonist with the Jools Holland band and vocalist Laura Oakley, both of whom had limited time to rehearse with the band but still managed to delight the crowd with their outstanding performances.
 
Mr Sayer, senior, also a musician provided technical support operating the sound and lighting system at the rear of the school hall.
 
At the end of the evening the audience called for an encore and James and the Band treated everyone to an impromptu rendition of Let It Be by the Beatles.
 
James is now flying over to New York to perform and record and will also be sharing his music with a well-known musician Michael McDonald.
