Gershwin's compositions spanned both popular and classical genres, and his most popular melodies are widely known. Among his best known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris, as well as the opera Porgy and Bess.  He’s the richest composer of all time (when you adjust for inflation), so what did he do differently? In The Sunday Times this weekend, you'll find this year's edition of the Rich List - one composer who most certainly would've appeared on it in his day was the great George Gershwin - and this is why: George Gershwin is one of the eternal legends of American music. He was a prolific writer, (some say he wrote up to six songs a day) and his music has been enjoyed by generations of music lovers the world over. His work ethic certainly kept the money flowing in, but it doesn’t quite explain the massive fortune that he accrued in his short life. You see, Gershwin wasn’t just rich, he was filthy rich. He's been ranked in several surveys as the highest grossing composer of all time (adjusted for inflation), streets ahead of Verdi, Rossini, Haydn and even Handel. So what was the magic formula which led to such wealth? Firstly, Gershwin’s music was outrageously popular. In 1919 his first big hit, ‘Swanee’ sold more than 2 million recordings and 1 million copies of sheet music. His folk opera ‘Porgy and Bess’ was also an instant hit, touring non-stop for three years after its initial run.

Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Songs in the Key of Life, like some big Hollywood studio blockbuster, comes to us already weighted down with words, stabbed with exclamation points and wrapped — or is it shrouded? — in great expectations. Two years in the making, the album's imminent release was announced several times, and each time it was withdrawn to be haggled over, reworked, expanded and gossiped about until its release at the end of September. It's nothing if not ambitious: two records plus a four-cut "bonus" EP disc — 21 songs in all — complete with lyric booklet and embarrassingly detailed notes thanking everyone from his mother and father to rack jobbers and stewardesses. The excessive gratitude (including an alphabetical list of over 150 names, from Abdul Jabbar to Frank Zappa) stands in contrast to the production credits, which are typically spare. This is another personal tour de force: Wonder produced, arranged, wrote and composed everything here; he sings all leads and most of the backing tracks as well; and, though a number of stars make cameo appearances, the majority of the cuts list at most four or five other musicians besides Wonder and many list only him. Wonder confronts us virtually single-handedly, grasps our expectations and wrestles them to the ground. I give him four out of five falls gratefully, happily; were it not for his lyrics he might have won them all. Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band "Superstition" Very superstitious, writings on the wall, Very superstitious, ladders bout' to fall, Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past When you believe in things that you don't understand, Then you suffer, Superstition ain't the way Very superstitious, wash your face and hands, Rid me of the problem, do all that you can, Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin' strong, You don't wanna save me, sad is my song When you believe in things that you don't understand, Then you suffer, Superstition ain't the way, yeh, yeh Very superstitious, nothin' more to say, Very superstitious, the devil's on his way, Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass, Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past When you believe in things that you don't understand, Then you suffer, Superstition ain't the way, no, no, no Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Stevie Wonder Superstition Steelasophical Steel Band Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past When you believe in things that you don't understand Then you suffer Superstition ain't the way, no, no, [...]

Over delivery as standard Over delivery as standard A few things to ask your choice of entertainment Do you have public liability insurance? (you do not want to be liable for damages or accidents, some of which could involve your family, friends and guests) Are you able to provide us with H&S documentation (Risk assessment, PLI, PAT Certification) Are you prepared to schedule your arrival for at least 2 hours prior to start time without extra charge Do you have another booking after ours which will mean you needing to rush straight off (taking into account your event may overrun slightly) Are you a musical entertainer or just a musician (there is a difference) Will you commit to proving us with a continuous service (no longer gaps between songs to chat, eat, drink, use mobile phone) Do you have the facility to provide recorded ambient music during your break so that the atmosphere is maintained Are you an established band or a group of musicians getting together to 'Do A Gig' Is our wedding a special occasion or 'Just Another Gig?' What is the quality of your instruments and equipment Steelasophical has music in a James Bond Movie, We have a winning entertainment performance on TV, albums selling world wide in over 42 countries. Find out what accolades and achievements your choice can truthfully site. Punctuality When booking a band, always make sure they are prepared to never arrive on time ... we as a rule aim to arrive at least 2 hours prior to start time, even though the client would be expecting us to arrive about 1 hour prior to start. This is important for a number of reasons 1. gives the client and venue peace of mind to see you arrive so early and set up well ahead of schedule. It gives them the time and mental space to concern themselves about the other million things that could go wrong! Breakdown Traffic Diversions Getting lost Client giving wrong address One perfect example I can recall, was being involved in a tyre blowout on the M4. I pulled the car over to the side of the road, but this was quite close to vehicles exiting the motorway at high speed. I felt this situation too dangerous to tackle alone, so called for the recovery service for assistance. They arrived about 90mins after my call, we emptied the car off all equipment to access the spare wheel, the blown wheel was replaced, car repacked and I was back on my way. By allowing a 2.5 hour earlier than contracted, I arrived at the venue more than 1 hour earlier than the client was expecting me. We even had an instance where the bride and groom had to change the location of their wedding last minute, but neglected to inform a number of the suppliers (including us), due to a falling out with the catering company [...]

We charge a premium fee but provide a premium service   -We accept no other booking on the day of your wedding, therefore dedicated to you - helpful especially if things on the day change and timings overrun   -As with every client, we are more than happy to walk away if we are being viewed as an expense rather than an investment. There is much hidden value in what we do and how we do it, but realise that we are not for everyone. There are many cheaper alternatives, but they are cheaper for a reason!   -Presentation and level of musical entertainment     Gary Trotman Steelasophical Why so much for just 2 hours service
