Music & Theatre

LAURENCE PAYNE studied trombone and piano at the Royal Academy of Music.

As Musical Director of shows ranging from rock 'n roll compilations to the very English Salad Days, he has travelled all over Britain and as far afield as Hong Kong, where he will always remember a thousand Chinese voices responding "Ah so!" to Dorothy's statement that she wasn't in Kansas any more!

When not playing live he can be found in his studio, coaxing music from computers, keyboards and singers.


Recent reports of his death were greatly exaggerated...see here.

The percussionist who appears in several pictures on this site is the excellent Bobby Cook. He makes it all possible. And his Mum bakes very good cakes.
