TRINITY 4 - A PROG/CHARITY EXTRAVAGANSA

Photo gallery

An day of both wonderful music prog style and generosity raising money for Scope, Mind and Help Musicians UK.
Headliners Mostly Autumn, Godsticks, The C:LIVE Collective, Alan Reed & the Daughters of Expediency, That Joe Payne and the late addition of Last Flight To Pluto all played their hearts out.
There was a raffle which included amongst others White Star Records bundles, The Reasoning goodie bags, while I donated a few prints left over from my exhibition last year.
The action really stated with the now famous Trinity auction the biggie was a unique prototype PRS SE GUITAR donated by Jakko Jakszyk of King Crimson with a band image painted on the body and signed by the man himself which raised well over a £1000, a signed Nightwish vinyl set and book, Steve Hackett signed blu-ray and much more.
There was an AOP ‘the art of prog exhibition' running throughout the day with iconic album artwork and a large section featuring the work of Rodney Matthews the famous artist who's work graces the albums of Magnum and many more.
During the afternoon break from the main stage action you could catch two special sessions which combined the beautiful music of Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick) and a Q & A session with Rodney Matthews.
All of the bands (giving there time for free) gave there all and the first half included a stylish set in both wardrobe and music by The C:Live Collective, beautifully delicate vocals/keyboards from That Joe Payne, and the upbeat energetic style of Last Flight To Pluto.
2nd half started with Alan Reeds new outfit Alan Reed & the Daughters of Expediency, mixing originals and a few Pallas classics while Godsticks brought there own brand of heavy prog rock to the stage.
Mostly Autumn played a stunning set to close including a couple of numbers from the brand new album White Rainbow the epic title track and the wonderfully catchy ‘Into The Stars' along with golden oldies ‘Evergreen', ‘Simple Ways' and ‘Nowhere To Hide (Close My Eyes)'.
To close it was the the after show party with once again Jerry Ewing on the decks with his prog rock disco.
Great music and good causes once again come together as one and I will let you no how much was raised as soon as announced.

KRISTY GALLACHER AND ROB HALLIGAN AT TEMPERANCE

Photo gallery

What a wonderful night of live music this was, a fine set by Rob Halligan followed by a wonderful performance by one of my favourite singer/songwriters all in the chilled out setting of Temperance in Leamington Spa.

Kristy treated us to originals including 'Quicksand' and 'Fending Off The Frost" and as a bonus a couple of brand new numbers, and a selection of covers by artists close to her heart by the likes of Tori Amos and the Indigo Girls.

An evening of top quality music in front of an attentive and appreciative audience.

A wonderful evening.

KRISTY GALLACHER - TEMPERANCE BAR, Friday 3rd May

Photo gallery

Kristy Gallacher will be performing at Temperance, in Leamington on May 3rd with Rob Halligan & Lisa Nowak.
Have had the pleasure of seeing Kristy perform so many times over the years since our first encounter at the Catalan Restaurant during the Warwick Folk Festival of 2010 and I have remained a huge fan of her work to this day.
Have so many fond memories of seeing her perform at Warwick Folk Festivals over the years as well as performances at The Napton Festival, The Cambridge Rock Festival and The Leamington Peace Festival.
Also remember her set supporting Steve Walwyn during the All Saints' Art Festival in Leamington and many other local events while last year she did me the great honour of performing at my charity photo exhibition at The Oak House.
So looking forward to the 3rd of May and here my is look back back over the years of Kristy in action.

LIVE/WIRE & WHITESNAKE UK - A DOUBLE DOSE OF CLASSIC ROCK

Review

A quality classic rock double header this one with regular Assembly visitors and top AC/DC tribute Live/Wire joined by another fine rock tribute Whitesnake UK and their David Coverdale and co songbook, a perfect Friday night dose of classic rock.
Like headliners Live/Wire Whitesnake UK do full justice to their particular musical heroes and they mix a little of the earlier blues rock era with a large slice of the bands highly successful 80's hair metal days.
The vocalist captures Mr Coverdale's cheeky charm (plenty of cries of "ere's a song for ya!!!!") as well as having the musical chops for the job, the drummer was amazing keeping the beat while constantly throwing his sticks in the air and the whole band brought the music of the mighty Snake to life.
It was classic after classic and after opening with a belting ‘Bad Boys' the set included big hitters ‘Don't Break My Heart Again', ‘Fool For Your Loving' and ‘Here I Go Again'.
On the epic side we had a glorious ‘Crying In The Rain' and the Goliath that is ‘Still Of The Night' which with that monstrously, heavy main riff was a headbangers delight.
A really well chosen set, very well played and the crowd including me loved it.
Live/Wire always deliver and of course give fans the experience of a Bon Scott era AC/DC show (a treat for me personally as I never got to see the the mighty Mr. Scott in action) and a Brian Johnson era gig, track wise you pretty much know what you are going to get but never is the phrase "don't fix it if it isn't broken" apply more.
Stage set wise they continually work on making the show bigger with a few changes here and there and this time around the band had a large back screen over the stage hence we had a cartoon image of a ‘shall we say lady of the larger variety' during ‘Whole Lotta Rosie', various extreme weather imagery for a pulsating ‘Thunderstruck' and the famous bell appeared for ‘Hells Bells'.
A 2 hour all action show with firstly our denim clad Bon running on stage for the likes of ‘Dirty Deeds' Done Dirt Cheap, Riff Raff' and ‘Shot Down In Flames' before he (by this time bare chested) left the stage midway through the set to be replaced by possibly the most famous cap in rock as our Brian for the evening prowled the stage and gave us the best of the Johnson years.
Back In Black is an important album of course in the AC/DC cannon (sorry!) so we had as well as that tolling bell, ‘Shoot To Thrill', ‘You Shook Me All Night Long' and of course the mighty title track.
So pleased they have reintroduced the Black Ice number ‘War Machine' to the set as it is for me one of the bands most powerful up tempo rockers with a thunderous main riff, also a bit of a twist as Angus did his famous strip during a lull in the action (usually if memory serves me right it takes place during Bad Boy Boggie).
Towards the end of the set both singers took the stage but due to the last train home I missed the cannons roaring at the finale but managed to catch them swapping lead vocals on an epic ‘Let There Be Rock' before I caught the rock and roll train (well the 10.59 to Hatton!).
A wonderful evening, one of the best rock tributes bands in the country Live/Wire and their buddies Whitesnake UK looking like they could easily join that list.
