Blown It! is a unique informal interactive evening of outrageous, hilarious story-telling, embarrassing photos of moustaches and horrific fashion faux pas, beautiful live performance and many chances to let light in on the magic of some of the favourites from your record collection. You won’t have heard of Johnny Thirkell. You wouldn’t recognise him in a line up! He can walk into any pub unnoticed but is on just about every song on the jukebox – you will have sung along with him many times in the car, had him as your first dance for he has been trumpeter of choice to the biggest names in music. Blown it! is an unbelievable tale from miner to major…imagine Billy Elliott if he couldn’t dance but played trumpet!
