No rain this year but not much sun either. That didnt stop the bands or people enjoying themseleves . We started the day in South Shields watching the Excellent Bessie and the Zinc Buckets run through a great rockin' set including Stray Cat Strut , Ubangi Stomp and Jolene, much to the delight of numerous small schildren running around the circular paved area th the front of the stage .Took some video with the new camera but the sound was distorted so I added a Gene Vincent soundtrack!!
Then we went into Tynemouth to the Priory to see various Salsa bands who were perfect for the occasion , not only that but the bar was incredibly efficient despite running out of various ciders towards the end.
The Priory looked great bedecked with weird looking flags and stuff.
Here's the main stage:
On leaving the Priory we went past the jazz stage and encountered this rather excellent sounding band: I'll leave this post with a phone photo of a double rainbow over Tynemouth last night:
