As part of the promotional effort for the Wokingham Street Concert that was organized by Trailer Park Troubadour alumnus Pauly Zarb, Antsy McClain, Pauly, and Louis Armstrong tribute trumpeter Troy Anderson were interviewed this morning by famed BBC moderator Henry Kelly on his Saturday morning show. They were also accompanied by Australian singer/songwriter Anthony Snape, who has performed with Pauly Zarb as part of the “Australian Troubadours” on three continents and recently has toured and performed throughout Italy with Tommy Emmanuel. Anthony was in an earlier interview but kindly provided the photos for this session.
Henry Kelly is famed as the face of British TV game shows like Going For Gold and became a household name in the UK as part of the team presenting LWT’s practical-joke show Game for a Laugh in the 1980s. He now brings his wit and insight to BBC Radio Berkshire on Saturday mornings.
The first part of the interview was with Troy “Satchmo” Anderson. Troy began playing the Trumpet at the early age of 10 based in Germany. He is currently the band leader of “The Wonderful World Tribute Band, ” one that Louis Armstrong brought to life. Troy is said to be “brilliantly thoughtful, skillful, talented, creative and a breath taking performer who’s amazing talent resonates with everyone in the room.
After a small performance by Troy, Mr. Kelly spoke with Pauly and Antsy about the Wokingham Street Concert and then a bit with Antsy about his singing style and inspirations.
Antsy then did a live rendition of “The Big Time” which is timely since he now has a BBC interview under his belt as well!
You can listen to the entire interview on demand HERE until June 5. The interview begins at the 12 minute mark and goes until the 20 minute mark in Mr. Kelly’s program. After the on demand ends, we will include a new link to the interview.
