The Haygate Wellington 11th July 2015.
Today’s S.O.T.S All Dayer is already proving to be a bit of smash, with much praise and thanks deservedly going out to all the bands who have already played in support of this fund raising event for Soldiers Off The Streets and the fantastic work that they do.
And with many great bands and artists still yet to come, it was an absolute pleasure to see Adrien and Em from Cadence Noir take to the stage and filling The Haygate with their pretty impressive gothic folk rock.
There was also no holding back the F1-11’s either, who took to the stage for the second time today but this time with a slightly different line up and a new set of tunes much to the enjoyment of everyone.
Next up tonight were Fires That Divide and these guys were definitely hell bent on making their thirty minutes count with a rousing set of full throttle rock ‘n‘ roll.
And the great rock kept rolling, with huge appreciation going out to The Black Hounds for a cracking performance!
Stone Broken were up on stage next and there was no shortage of fans who came along tonight to see them. Do check this band out on Facebook – you won’t be disappointed.
When it comes to compiling my fantasy gig line up, it would never be complete without Theia being on the bill so I was definitely doing the happy dance tonight!
It’s been a while since I last saw Captain Horizon but tonight from they were just as outstanding as ever, with ’Patch’ being a particularly fitting song to be included in this evenings set.
Midnight had come and gone when our event headliners Liberty Lies took to the stage and one things for sure, these guys certainly brought this great event to a storming end.
Today as a whole, has been fantastic to say the very least and it was so good to see such great support going out to Soldiers Off The Streets in recognition of all the great work that they do.
With the purpose of today being to raise as much money as possible to further aid their cause, the final tally stood a £1,000.00, so much kudos going out to the bands, Garry Foster, The Haygate and ultimately Andy Boden for bringing this all together and actually making a difference!
