Paris Dancer

I was invited to Blackfriars in Newcastle to shoot the CD launch for Paris Dancer. The frontman Norman McGlenn is the singer with local band This Machine and is therefore very well known on the scene.  The band were supported by Siege UK.  A very entertaining night was had with the band playing for a full hour, all originals, all great songs.  Go see them soon and buy their CD, it’s very good !

Ronington 5

On Saturday I made my yearly pilgrimage to ‘Ronington’, a day of music for charity that started 5 years ago as a one-off event and then continued as a highly anticipated gig in the north east music calendar. 10 bands over 8 hours.

Over £3750 was raised for the Bobby Robson Charity – nice one !

Rubber Bullets – 10cc

Rubber Bullets are a band I’ve been trying to go and see for a few months but never made it. I’d heard some good reviews so off the The Queen Vic in South Shields I went.

All i’m going to say is if you like 10cc then you will love this band, if you like good music you will love this band and if you appreciate musicianship at it’s best then you will love this band.  Go and see them, sing along (as I did all night) and support live music.

Satan – The Homecoming Gig

It’s been 30 years since Satan played in Newcastle and I had to be at this show. Satan are a heavy metal band originating from Newcastle in 1979, known as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) movement. The band is considered influential for playing a form of proto-thrash/speed metal that was fairly advanced by the standards of the early 1980s.

The show was part of the Brofest weekend, an annual event bringing heavy metal fans from around the world to a three day indoor festival of heavy metal.  I was only there on Saturday and mainly went to see Satan but was thoroughly entertained by the rest of the bands on the day.

Brofest is an event that will hopefully continue for many years to come, watch out for Brofest 2017 and get yourselves along for a very special weekend.
