River studios filming

Posted by Phil On August - 1 - 2011


A recent session filming at the new River Studios.  Here’s a few quick grabs from the video rushes.  Everyone seems very happy ..and I don’t think it’s my jokes they are laughing at.  It must be the ambience




..and here’s one of the bands in the beautiful rehearsal rooms.





and the foyer area …with one of my video recordings playing.

Judging at TalentCall 2011

Posted by Phil On July - 20 - 2011

I did three days judging at O2 Opera House in Bournemouth.

Saturday night was the bands night.  I was judging with Suzy Wheeler and Jay Rachet



Some excellent bands ..and the result was very close, but the band going through to the final was Green Phoenix, two 14 year old girls on bass and drums and a 16 year old lad on guitar, who were amazing. The bassist was only just bigger than her guitar, yet they played a great set.
