We were sandwiched like a gloriously meaty Chorizo filling between two exceptional pieces of bread, between The Hoosiers and the mighty Bay City Rollers. Two incredible bands - The Hoosiers being a band we've particularly adored over our time, so I'm sure you can all imagine we found going on stage after they'd finished their set with the incredible Goodbye Mr A pretty darn daunting.
But nonetheless, as that glorious piece of artistry and catching song writing came to an end, on our adjacent stage, we stood holding instruments in hands being clenched as though they were our axes on the way into a mighty battle. We had to perform... and that we did. In came a powerful strum-introducing one of my favourite songs of ours, This Made Me, and towards us looked the eyes of fans all across the festival. We enjoyed mustering a pretty substantial crowd of listeners, a difficult feat when we were unknown to almost every single person there. It felt incredible. We rocked for 30 minutes solid without holding up and enjoyed ourselves so much the crowd couldn't help but enjoy themselves too, which is what it's all about.
All in all, a fantastic experience for us, a huge step forwards for our confidence and our belief in ourselves as we move forwards. Lots more coming up for us, which, if you follow us on any social networking site you'll have no doubt been inundated with information about, and if you haven't been, rest assured you will be. With all this love we get out of what we do, we fully believe we'll get ourselves onto the bills of many more festivals next year, as well as many other huge shows.
Thank you to all of you who read this and follow us, it means the world, and you'll be hearing more from us very soon.
