Here’s some of the highlights from last week’s 21st Stony Live festival. It was eight days of live events; music, drama, comedy, art, and more. I saw quite a few bands, lots of people and quite a few vehicles, and these are some of the photos I took. This year I tried to take photos of the audience, having photographed those bands before and got some good results. It’s been a fine week.
Stony Classic Show. Actually organised separately, but in practise it’s all part of the same set of events.
The Stony Life programme invited us to come down to The Fox and Hounds, to celebrate Pete Vene’s 60th birthday with his band One Foot in the Groove, and said there was cake. How could I refuse?
One Foot in the Groove played again for Stony Live, but this time at the Cock Hotel for Rock For Willen 2: Blue Floyd. It was a charity gig for Willen Hospice. Sharing the bill were Simply Floyd, who are in these photos.
I’ve already got some nice shots of Simply Floyd in the past and I was just going to take some of the audience, but in The Cock there’s more room for the band, and I was able to get different shots to the ones I’d got last year, in the much smaller stage at The Fox and Hounds.
They were also pretty much the last band on the last night of Stony Live, and we were all a bit tired after eight days of enjoying ourselves, as the lead singer seemed to notice. But he heckled us back to life in the end.
