We usually have outdoor shows at the Music Shack near Donnybrook WA – although we’ve plenty of room we’re limited to 100 maximum. We filled all places for Simon and Tammy London last Friday 10th March and the crowd were very happy with the great performance. We first heard Simon and Tammy at last year’s Fairbridge Music Festival and they did well there, attracting good crowds to their gigs.
Our crowd always turn up early for a picnic and chat with friends well before the show and Friday was no exception. The photo shows the early arrivals settling in. The night turned quite cold but we’re a bit used to it and everyone was prepared with rugs and jackets so it made no difference. Another glass of red helped some.
During the first set the six year old Sid did a spell on tambourine – he’s already a performer having busked at Fairbridge on his trumpet last year.
Photographing the evening scene with our tree spots changing colours and twinkling laser dots contrasting against the bright stage lights is a bit tricky so this hand held shot is the best I could manage on the night.
That’s it for this summer season – we’ve had our usual three summer gigs and we’ve packed everything away till next season. We usually have a winter indoor show but this year we’ll be in Europe for several months so that’s it until next year. That was our 27th concert, all run on the House Concert basis of performers take the gate less expenses – it’s all good fun.
