Well another stonking show organised by Mark Page and his team for the Humber Street Sesh last Saturday. No shortage of live entertainment in different venues. The best standard of bands and also a big shout for the sound crews who were well in control. I walked about 8.5 miles overall and covered a number of bands and a couple of solo artistes. I’d like to say that a particular band stood out – but they were all superb. Best show put on I think went to Young Jack. I hope you like the images on here, both of acts and the “other stuff” without which the event couldn’t take place.
In all the excitement that goes with preparation for a wedding, I’d completely forgotten about Cottingham Day. I didn’t spend as much time there as in previous years but here are a few from the day. I must say though, the models outside Maxine Rae must have had a heck of a job getting in and out. Great Zumba routines on the school playing field as well. If we hadn’t just come back from holiday, Sue would have been amongst them. Lovely view from the top of St Mary’s Church too.
Cottingham Springboard Festival was on over the last weekend but as I was going down to RAF Duxford for the VE Day Anniversary Air Show, I only managed one set at The Olive Garden, Hallgate, Cottingham. I went to see Frankie Flowers, singer/songwriter daughter of Kevin & Claire Hutchinson. I used to work with Kevin at Romeo & Juliets in Hull in the ’70’s and also at Jacksons Club in Hull.
Anyway, I digress – she was very good indeed and I would have liked to have stayed longer.
Don’t simple pictures make you happy? I thought this when I saw a couple taking a selfie of themselves in St Mark’s Square. I’d love to know who they were and what they were doing there. She seems really happy and he looks amused at the image on the screen and both were totally oblivious to me taking their picture. If you know them – point them in this direction and I’ll send them the original
Another good band, fronted by Danny Landau, performing on the BP sponsored stage at The Sesh. There’s a shedload of good musicians around at the moment. Reminds me of when I started playing in the mid ’60’s. Anyway – I digress, here’s a few images from the short time they were on stage :-
