The weekends just passed and as always Kendal Calling delivered a wet, sloppy, mud bath of a festival with some of the best live music and atmosphere you can find! I did photography coverage for the Jam Tent who are a charity that get disadvantaged and disabled young people involved in live music and gigs. They did a great job over the weekend with a real sense of community and dedication to getting everyone involved. Some smashing music was played too! They really do cater to their audience and provide a great service and I cannot express how happy the audience were to get involved!
Below is the gallery of the tents weekend. Unfortunately the weather was so bad they had to cancel the Sunday and the tent was so dark with minimal lighting that the cameras were struggling but we got the best we could have with what we had.
I am happy to announce that I will be doing photography coverage for the Jam Tent at Kendal Calling. It is a great cause getting disadvantaged and disabled young people involved in gigs and music and I am happy to be able to cover this event!
Cabbage were headlining the first night on the BBC Introducing stage at Highest Point this year and boy did they kick it off with a bang! They were electric, sensational and played their much loved originals including Uber Capitalist! They were upbeat and energetic from their lyrics down to their music! With Joe climbing the steel beams and kicking amps about, they were definitely shredding the stage up! They were sensational and had a well deserved crowd for it!
Last night the Revivals absolutely kicked off the New Year with a bang and as always had their rocking oomph to it! Supported again by no other than The Sandemans!
The other night I got the superb chance to do gig photography for an up and coming band called Fight For Friday. A youthful, energetic, punk pop band with a superb sound and a great bond between the lads! Brilliant to see perform. Unfortunately the crowd wasn't the best at this gig as their not overly heard of in Glasgow, however give it time and everyone will know of them! Great stuff!
A country-folk band named The Federals, performed an outstanding set at Glenelg over the weekend. With lots of Johnny Cash as always!!
So recently I had the pleasure of doing gig photography for The Revivals, who recently got back together following their decade long hiatus just before their second album was ready for the studio. What can I say? Having played gigs out at south by southwest in Austin, the O2 in Brixton and Dobbies, they are no strangers to an ecstatic crowd, and that's exactly what they had at the Twa Tams. Sure it was a smaller gig compared to what they were used to, but as always they killed it! They were electric, eccentric and had some of their classics including real love, absent alibi and chooglin. The crowd were, small but packed and vibrant. It was the definition of 'intimate'. Get these guys in the big time please!
They were supported by non other than a up and coming local band named The Sandemans.
If you haven't already get listening to The Revival's first album on I Tunes.
