Like Father Like Son 2014
On 4th May 2014 Graham and Richard performed their second Like Father Like Son Concert at the Rowntree Theatre in York. Following a similar format to last year, but with a new programme of songs including a new one written by Richard, they entertained an audience of 300. This concert alone, along with the accompanying raffle, raised £1518 for York Against Cancer. A fabulous achievement for a very important cause.

Some audience feedback from 2014;
“Such a fabulous evening. Spectacular!”
“A true Tour de Force”
“what a brilliant concert last night – first class entertainment. Hope you do it again next year but you should charge at least twice as much for such quality. Well done.”
Like Father Like Son 2013
Along with his father Graham, Richard embarked on his first full concert as a soloist in April 2013. Entitled Like Father Like Son, it presented a variety of songs – from tragic to comic, classical to pop – accompanied by the fabulous Malcolm Maddock. We were also treated to a “flash mob” style performance by members of the York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir who were positioned throughout the auditorium. The audience of 275 thoroughly enjoyed themselves and £850 was raised for York Against Cancer. Below are a few audience comments and a link to the York Press preview. Future Like Father Like Son shows are already being considered and Richard and Graham can be contacted for bookings through firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Really enjoyed the show last night – a great mixture of songs performed in an informal and intimate way. Loved how you brought the choir in too.”
“I thought last night’s concert was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed it, well done.”
“what a fabulous concert it was last evening, fantastic concept in particular having the choir involved”
“Just perfect….worthy of any West End show. More of the same please!”
Thanks to all who supported this show and helped to make it the success that it was.
