Marquee gig at the Friday night music night
We played in the marquee at Capel Fete-Ival, the Capel Fete Friday night family function.
On before U-Turn were the community band the Foghorns. They were set up several years ago specifically to perform here and have done so ever since.
Next up was Tommy Ludford, a very talented singer songwriter who appeared on The X Factor in 2018. He famously fell off the stage, which was probably a bit embarrassing at the time, but has raised his profile with YouTube views of over 750k! Keep an eye out for him as he is gigging around quite a lot.
Surprisingly everything was actually ahead of schedule which meant we started a little earlier and we played the best part of an hour. Our rhythm section were Rob Smith and Pete Roberts.
The big surprise of the night was Rocket Man playing aloft from a tin foil dressed JCB. He played David Bowie’s Space Oddity and Elton John’s Rocket Man with a back drop of a beautiful sunset.
The weather was superb which brings in a big crowd and really makes these occasions. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves playing and meeting the organisers and crew at Capel Fete-Ival.
