This is a pretty special gig for Rouge, or more specifically for Simone as it is part of her final assignment for her degree and she is being marked for it! Needless to say, Simone passed with flying colours! But equally as important, it was another brilliant show for the band with energies at their highest to date with only the council’s curfew stopping the show. It’s extremely rewarding and joyous to see the band and the act grow and improve with every show, and I await with anticipation every time to the next rehearsal and gig.
Westminster University’s sound department provided FOH support who I must mention as they have done a superb job! It is the first time that I’ve heard this particular room sounding this good! The brilliant audience of students, friends and fans are a phenomenal mix for a great night. In many ways, it’s like preaching to the converted, but there are plenty of minds to win over nevertheless.
Refusing to give back the out-of-this-world Canon 5D MkII to my dear friend, I’ve been privileged to use it again to snap a few action shots and another few of the pre-show dinner.
