Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm

Norda Mullen is a classically trained musician, performer, and recording artist who resides, teaches, and performs in the UK. She toured the world with the English classic rock band the Moody Blues until their retirement in 2018.

In the mid-1990s Los Angeles agent Robert Norman, of the Creative Artists Agency, arranged for Norda to perform with Justin Hayward, the lead singer of the Moody Blues, on several of his solo tours.

In 2003, after flutist Ray Thomas retired from the Moody Blues, Norda was asked to fill Ray’s shoes, joining the Moody Blues Touring Band. “Joining the touring band was” Norda says, “a decision that took five seconds to make!” She has since been a fixture in the front row of the Moody Blues Touring Band, traveling the world with them and performing on every tour. She describes her performance with the band at the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony as “a joy and a privilege.” She is featured on the Moody Blues Album, 'December', released in 2003, as well as 'Lovely to See You: Live from the Greek' released in 2006, and 'Days of Future Passed Live' released in 2018.

Norda enjoyed an equally successful studio career in Los Angeles. She played flute, piccolo, alto flute and bass flute on a long list of major film scores, including Monsters, INC, Toy Story (2 & 3), The Matrix Trilogy, Jurassic Park (2 & 3), Sea Biscuit, Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers and Cars. She also played on Randy Newman's 2008 album, Harps and Angels. She considers Randy Newman her “musical mentor.”

Support from Quinny & Company.

Please note this will be a seated show.
