This is the second part of the Blog for our Good Friday show at The Beacon in Wantage, (did you catch up with our antics in part 1?) The show was so good, and we had so many photos and videos from the night, that we had to put it in two parts! At the end of the first show, no one could quite believe what Jamie had done with his guitar! In the break we put on our new costumes which consisted of some Red Guards jackets, as featured in our photo shoot with Michael Randolph last summer. The set started with a new one for us; Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club band followed by ‘With a little help from my friends’ which were originally recorded 50 years ago!
One of the shows highlights was when we got Tommy’s Dad, George Lloyd up to play with us.
Harriet performed ‘Son of a preacher man’ for only the second time, it sounded really fantastic and thank you to singing coach Lucy Bosley for running it through with Harriet in the weeks leading up to the show.
Here is a fun clip form ‘Hi Ho Silver Lining’ and guitar instrumental Miserlou. Our lead guitarist Ben Jones on form!
We enjoyed doing a few different songs to normal and loved the groovy ‘new’ vintage shirts.
The night ended with two encores to a standing ovation, it really was such an amazing night and great fun to wear the new costumes.
Thank you so much to Andy Shaw for taking the majority of the photos and helping with the merchandise table. Well done to Sam who played with The Zoots in the first half of the show and to Tom West who was the mastermind animation genius who did the Zoots animation introduction at the start of the show. Thank you to Tommy’s Dad George for getting up on stage!
Thank you so much to everyone who came, it means the absolute world to have your support.
Lots of love from,
Thank you to Geoff who sent us this lovely email following the show:
