See more, do more, be more, Kev Moore

Sometimes, as a musician or a performer, you can spend all your days racking your brains trying to think up a “handle” or witty epithet with which you can be associated, or be known by. Invariably, it doesn’t work. but I have come to realise that catchphrases are like buses. You can wait all day for one, then two come along at once.

Tony's Gift

A few years back, when I’d tired of the bass and life on the motorways of the world, schlepping from gig to gig, I decided to put a solo vocal show together and market myself a little differently. My goal was, unashamedly, a bloody easy life. it all worked out rather well, when , on the strength of 20 minutes worth of songs, I began a wonderful 2 years sailing the Mediterranean and the Caribbean seas as a guest entertainer aboard Ocean Village – a colourful cruise liner that advertised “cruises for people who don’t do cruises”

I quickly became part of what we laughingly referred to as “the Village People” – and made fast friends in particular with Tony Stevens (Magician and Comedian) Rachel lane (Vocalist) and Zac Bauman ( er…well he’s just Zac really). We would regularly gather in Charlies Cafe bar amidships and bandy ideas around. Somehow or other, one of Ocean village’s catchphrases morphed from See more, do more, be more, into See more, do more, be more, Kev Moore – and before long comperes were introducing me onstage that way!

It wasn’t long before Tony presented me with a T-shirt featuring the newly bastardised slogan!

It didn’t stop there of course, I was also christened “The Nice guy of rock” which I was also from then on introduced as. My intro was in danger of becoming as long as my show! Towards the end of my time onboard, various cast members from the show also took to singing “Kev Moore, Moore, Moore, how do you like him, how do you like him?” to the tune of 70’s disco hitmakers Andrea true connection’s “more more more” whenever they walked past me!! I had become a publicist’s dream.

By the way, I was only kidding about Zac, he actually does a wonderful swing show…oh, and apparently he thinks he’s funny too.
