The Surround Gig
Two gigs in one day, a minor clash with the World Cup Final, and two cracking audiences despite this. Sweet!
Hot on the heels of our sell-out Valentine's gig, cracking Corn Exchange Christmas Cocktail and collaboration with Basement Jaxx, Sunday 13th July saw us taking on the stunning Apex Concert Hall in Bury St Edmunds.
The Surround Gig was a big deal for Dowsing. We had around 100 voices on stage, welcomed Skilly Skillz (an incredible beatboxer that you absolutely have to check out) into the band for the night, and collaborated with the acclaimed Megson - the lovely Stu & Debbie Hannah - who approached us back in March on the back of our collaborations with Basement Jaxx & Boo Hewerdine. Add to this our guest trumpeter from Amsterdam, Loveday Smith, the return of the bonkers Eigenharp and the gorgeous Granta String Quartet, plus the first appearance of an accordion in one of our gigs (on a cracking cover of the Hôtel Costes mix of Diferente by the Gotan Project) and you start to get a sense of it all.
Below is the fantastic promo from the gig, plus some gorgeous photos from the night, both created/taken by the multi-talented Paul Cook - just click on the first photo to get to the next. Enjoy.
