Thursday at The Dolphin

What jolly fun we had!
Kicked of with Jo and Botyov 1791 who was off to a festival the very next day and gave a great show.

Next came Tom Caulfield and his mate Barney on the cajone (it was Ben wasn't it?) who blew everyone away, just amazing.

Steve Picken bought along his guitar excellence and mesmerized us all with his skills

Then it was down to me to sew up the first half.

As you may or may not know, all artists play two sets the length dependent on how many artists are playing eg 4 artists - 2 hours - each artists plays 2 x 15 min sets.
I think it works well at the Dolphin, it keeps everyone interested plus we don't get that awful situation where fans of an artists disappear after their act has finished, you know what I mean?
I was very pleased with the whole night. We managed to fill our corner of the pub and had folk actually change their seats so they could hear our noise.


Chris (the landlord) did have the ambient mic on and that worked pretty well except that I think it would be better to have it higher so that people don't just stand in front of it and let it be more....ambient.
Considering this is a slow time of year with many people on holidays, at festivals  ect I reckon we did bloody well and estimate there was about 40-50 people there which for a Thursday night was pretty damn good.
So onwards and upwards, the next show is the 17th September.
Who's up for it?
