GIG: U-Turn @ The Bedford Tunbridge Wells

U-Turn at The Bedford Tunbridge Wells

Rockin’ in Tunbridge Wells

We were back at The Bedford in Tunbridge Wells for a Friday night gig and the first gig in 2020. We’ve been along on the Friday live music nights to watch and it’s always been a good atmosphere, so it was nice to play there.

It was pouring down with rain outside for our set up so bringing the kit in wasn’t much fun. Inside it was hot and steamy so our instruments were covered in condensation when we were ready to start under the chorus of “whey are we waiting”! lol

We had a very enjoyable night with people dancing right from the off – thanks to all who attendeded, making it a really good atmosphere and fun night!
