Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of the showbiz industry? What it would be like to work with the stars, to develop a career to the side of the spotlight? Wonder no further. Mike Dixon’s new book, Turn Around and Take a Bow!, will let you in on a few secrets and stories he learned having worked in the British music industry for over 40 years. Raise the curtain! Mike has been Musical Director for more than twenty West End productions including, We Will Rock You, The Bodyguard, Grease, Aspects of Love, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar. His TV credits include six Royal Variety Performances, countless light entertainment series and Glastonbury with Shirley Bassey, as well as a huge number of high profile television and radio concerts. His career has taken him all over the world working with some of the most iconic artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Dame Shirley Bassey, Lord Lloyd-Webber, Leslie Bricusse, Sir Tim Rice, Don Black, Sir Elton John, Lionel Richie, Sir Tom Jones, Lady Gaga and Queen. The book follows his journey as his exciting and eclectic musical career develops. From his early musical experiences in Plymouth, studying at Trinity College of Music, to conducting in the Royal Albert Hall, with plenty of humour along the way, it is a little peek behind the scenes into the world of entertainment from a unique, hands-on perspective. Mike says, “Over the past forty or so years I have been privileged to be at the very heart of British Musical Theatre, Radio and Television. Sometimes you have to stop pinching yourself and start writing it all down and that’s what I have done. Up close and personal with some real musical icons and exploring how I got to be there. The great teachers, the extraordinary musicians and my own personal journey - it is all here in this book.”
