#49. The Grey Horse Pub, Kingston. 11.06.11.

We're Sgt. Phantoms Cheesy Covers Band! We hope you will enjoy the show...

For all the ardent Phans who were not happy with a mere half hour of Pheltstock Phestival Phants, the following evening at the Grey Horse saw their chance to satisfy their full 2 hour Phantom fix! When this gig was first arranged it seemed like a good idea, but following the exertions of the previous day the band were having second thoughts after all waking up the next morning knackered, bleary eyed & in some cases without a voice! But after a days lounging around & a trip to Boots to stock up on ‘Vocalzone’ (recommended to help relieve throat irritation if you have been talking, singing or smoking excessively) the boys reconvened in Kingston, reinvigorated and ready to rock! Welsh Wizard Roger Henderson started the evening off in the front bar going down a storm & so after several encores it was the Phantoms turn. This time round, the boys had shuffled the pack a bit swapping some of the usual crowd pleasers with a few old classics from the back catalogue whilst adding 3 great new tunes, Parklife (débuted the previous day & going down just as well again), Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (which was an inevitable choice after coming up with the gig poster idea) & Blondie’s One Way or Another (featuring the guest vocal talents of Louisa Biggs). Thanks for helping out Louisa as I’m sure the Phants ravaged voices wouldn’t have stood up to those high notes on their own! Thanks to all of you that came along, congrats to comp winner Tony who seemed to enjoy his prize & see you all again in just under 3 months time. What a great weekend!

The Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead vocals & keys), Kevin Rogers (guitar), Jason Biggs (guitar & vocals), Jon Novice (bass & vocals), Alun Westoll (drums & vocals) & special guest Louisa Biggs (vocals).
