Saturday at the Ramblin' Man Fair
The Ramblin' Man Fair is a lovely two day festival showcasing Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Outlaw Country and Blues. Set in a park in Kent, this year we were blessed with hot weather and blue skies.
My photo-blog of Me And That Man has already been published here.
Therapy? were perhaps an unusual choice for this festival with their punk rock credentials, but worry not they played a great set and were very well received by the crowd. Opening with their version of Joy Division's Isolation, Therapy? kept the crowd happy right the way through to the end with old favourites as well as tracks from their new album (to be released in Sept 18).
The Rising Stage was home to some up and coming acts, the pick of which was Brighton's The Rocket Dolls. The post-grunge riff-rock trio gave us an energetic enjoyable set and appeared to enjoy themselves as much as the crowd did. Go check them out and download their latest album 'DeaDHeaD' here.
Back to the mainstage for the Cadillac Three. A fast and furious mix of Southern Rock, Country and good old rock'n'roll from this Nashville trio. Not a band I knew before but I enjoyed the set and hope to catch them again soon.
Myles Kennedy is a class act. His acoustic set contained songs from his solo work, songs from Alter Bridge, even an Iron Maiden cover! For an hour under a scorching sun Myles kept a large crowd very happy.
What can I say about the glam rock / hair metal entertainers Steel Panther that is printable and that hasn't been said before? These guys are fun, but it mustn't be forgotten that they are also a great band. A set full of riffs'n'rudeness, solos, banter and a frighteningly good Ozzy impression.
Heavy Music Artwork sent me along to the Ramblin' Man Fair to take some photos. Catch up with them online and get yourselves copies of the printed magazine and their collectable books here.
