LEGENDS OF ROCK
GREAT YARMOUTH 16-19TH OCTOBER 2015
Legends Of Rock – The Originals is one of the few music events that gives established rock legends and future legends equal billing during its three-day event. Set in Great Yarmouth’s 5 star Vauxhall holiday Park, it’s not unknown to see the acts doing a guest slot in other sets, having a drink at the bar and mingling with music fans – where else can you find that! Alongside the wall to wall music, there’s plenty of meet and greet opportunities and chances to get your hands on some merch and wonderful wall art – this year the album art man, Rodney Matthews was also there with some of his legendary work. It’s a fantastic way to get up close and personal with some terrific musical acts.
Friday’s line up was a perfect example of new blood alongside veteran musicians. Blind Tiger and Wicked Faithopened up proceedings on the two stages at Vauxhall Park. One of the rising stars of the rock world,Jupiter Fallsplayed an afternoon slot in the V Arena. JF are a terrific band young from Leeds with a promising future in the rock world and well worth looking out for. All girl trio The Amorettesput on an impressive show that was energetic and ballsy thanks to the gritty vocals from Gill Montgomery and hard rock percussion sisters Hannah and Heather McKay on drums and bass. Over in the V lounge Darke Horse certainly had the head bangers in full throw with a set that included a superb cover of Iron Maiden’s Phantom Of the Opera.
Speaking of the mighty Irons, the mention of former singer Blaze Bayley may still cause mixed emotions with Maiden fans, but back with his own band Wolfsbanehe is certainly at home.
