A light day today, I only saw two bands.
First up was The Dreamboats and they were fabulous. They captured the very essence of early US style rock and roll, before it was filtered to be radio or TV friendly. They did two covers in the set, Hippy Hippy Shake and Johnny B Goode and their own songs sat seamlessly beside them. I don't how the audience weren't ripping out seats! After they were done I felt like I needed a lie down such was the energy and enthusiasm from the stage.
Here's one of their own numbers.
After a quick refreshment break it was down to the Cavern Pub for Kontiki Suite. I enjoyed their easy going set. There was a country rock feel with a hint of Stills and Young.
They have played at IPO before but I don't think I'd ever ever seen them till now. I think I will be investigating the forthcoming new CD.
