An incredible talent that was taken far too soon. I sadly only met Simon properly once when he and his band Spaced Invaders came in for a chat in March, but was immediately struck by his warmness as well as how effortless and delightful he was to talk to. He’s an invaluable member of our local music scene and someone we will not forget. Rest In Peace, Simon”
Kurilpa Reach wrote “If you’ve seen us play a show in the past year, you would have seen this bespectacled yahoo we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. It is with immense sadness to say that our dear friend and saxophonist Simon Hatton passed away on the 10th of August.
Simon was the most gentle and positive soul, always thanking us for letting him play with us after a gig, when really he was the one we will always have endless gratitude for. Our thoughts are with his family, @spaced_invaders @bigdinnerband and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Every song from now on will be a song for Simon. We love you “
