Alfie Barton's Ballroom Experience 25 years Anniversary gig....

25th January 2016

This Anniversary gig was headlined as a 'Special'.

It certainly never needed any hype as another Fermain Tavern sell-out was guaranteed. The Alfie Barton Ballroom Experience gigs started 25 years ago (actually we think it was 27 years but who's arguing).

The idea was to get musician friends together, invite music lovers in to enjoy the vibe, then jam and improvise... just for the love of the music. The added bonus was that Alfie would invite a few of his famous friends to come along to enjoy the party.

Legendary is probably an overused word but none of the old crowd who frequented the 'Ballroom gigs' would let you call it anything less!

So inevitably all those who managed to get a ticket before the quick sell-out were buzzing with anticipation when Alfie took to the stage to announce that we were in for a busy night of entertainment.

Legendary and Special is exactly what it was.

The line-up included 'The Reverend' Ian Kewley, Denny Newman, Stewart Ivins, Nick Windsor, Colin Hewlett, Jim Delbridge, Alan Palzeaird, Chris Dean, Screamin' Jez Carvery and new boys on the block Kylypso amongst many others.

A fantastic start to 2016... same again next month anyone?

If you were at the gig I hope you think my pics capture some of the highlights.... If you weren't, silly you!!
