PALOMA FAITH Performs at Westonbirt

Last night I had the pleasure of going to the Paloma Faith concert at Westonbirt and as I had a media pass I was shooting from the ‘pit’

Now I have to say I was a little disappointed at all of the restrictions placed on photographers at the concert, probably the most I have ever had to sign up to (at least I didnt refuse to go like I did with Blondie)!!!!
However I did really enjoy it, she sounded wonderful, looked wonderful and performed wonderfully. She was indeed very very good. I am also please with a lot of the images I got, only some of which are on this blog post.

I also need to mention the warm up act. Marques Toliver was also very very good and as I found out from one of his crew the backing singer is Lola Lennox, daughter of Annie Lennox.

The weather was awful and there were several heavy downpours but it didnt dampen the spirit and enjoyment of the concert by the audience.

Billy Ocean and Hazell Dean Perform at Swindon Concert

Last night The Swindon Bowl was packed out for the Billy Ocean and Hazell Dean concert. Both were brilliant and sang all their old hits to the pleasure of the audience. And the audience were great. There was no trouble, everybody was really really friendly especially when I was walking amongst them with the camera and they knew I was working for the Swindon Adver. I was getting mobbed myself and felt like a star.

Have to also say what a cool dude Billy Ocean is. Smooth does not do it justice.

All in all a very good night last night and thanks to Swindon BC for putting it on.

Boogie Nights Swindon Wyvern Theatre Photo Shoot

One of the jobs I had last week was the photo call at The Wyvern Theatre Swindon for the show Boogie Nights. What fun it was and what a nice group of people. Chatted to them all at some point and they were all so nice. And I have to say I really do think it is going to be a must see show. From what I saw it was sooooo funny and of course the 70’s was my era anyway I just think I will have to go. And I would encourage anybody out there to book up and see it.
The cast consists of Gareth Gates, Chico, Louisa Lytton, Andy Abraham and Shane Ritchie Jnr
