12 February 2011 – Tonight The King Blues played The Garage as part of the HMV Next Big Thing shows.
Anyone who reads this blog knows that The Garage is my worst venue to shoot at because the lighting is normally always terrible, the stage is high, the pit is small and the back wall is really close so atmosphere from the pit isn’t the greatest and I have never been a fan of shooting chins. Tonight was different though because the lighting seemed a bit better but regardless it would have been worth making it down to see the guys play.
They’re really great live and I always feel a part of a family when they do their thing … a lot of positive energy flowing in the crowd.
There have been a few line-up changes since I shot / saw them live but it seems like all the members feel each other and they are tight together so it must be a good thing. They also played a bunch of new stuff from their up-coming album and it’s great to hear them step it up yet again.
Make sure to check out The King Blues and get their album as it comes out. They deserve the support.
