Stars shining brightly

Perhaps the title contains a little hyperbole, but there were some seriously mediocre good performances last night at Jam Night. The hearts of the audience were stolen by a haunting rendition of Hallelujiah; socks were knocked off in the soaring solos of Joker and the Thief; and the human guitar machine, Clemo, took out MVP for an array of rapid-fire fretwork.

From my perspective as one of several debutants, it was a hell of a lot of fun. Nerves kicked in halfway through my first song, The Way by Fastball, when I realised we were playing it much faster than usual so I’d need to be on the ball in the solo. I dropped a few notes here and there but didn’t make any major blunders, which was a relief. I was also the nominated photographer for the night, with 300 shots in the bag, a solid 100 of which were in the keeper to good range (at least half due to the ‘excellent’ singing faces on display). Here’s a couple for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to imagine the accompanying racket music when you’re looking at them. An album can be found here.
