Friday evening saw me at The Oasis in Swindon photographing Alice Cooper and the support act Michael Monroe. And I have to say I enjoyed Michael Monroe his music and his performance as much as Alice Cooper. I thought he was just as good. As you can imagine he was just as photogenic as Alice Cooper so all in all I really enjoyed the evening and really enjoyed Michael Monroe and his band.
Friday evening I spent a very pleasant evening photographing UB40 at the Oasis in Swindon. There was a packed house and of course the audience sang along to all of the songs they played. They were well worth going to see and photograph and I really enjoyed it and listening to comments by others I think everybody else did as well.
Last night James Bay played a concert at The Oasis in Swindon. It was excellent. He sounded exactly the same live as he does on cd/radio etc. really good quality. The lighting was also really good (although as usual first three were not as good as the rest of the lighting show). The Oasis was absolutely full with all tickets sold and James Bay worked the crowd like a seasoned pro.
All in all an excellent gig.

The SYP put on yet another stunning performance in 2015 with Hairspray at The Wyvern Theatre in Swindon.
To me it was as good as any professional production, which was also probably reflected in the fact that all showings were fully booked before hand. Very enjoyable.
I got carried away and took 1200 images. Over 200 will be being used on a disc of images from the production I am proud to say. With that many images it is very difficult to decide which ones are not only technically the best but the ones that show the production at its best. Hopefully I did a good job.
