Phoenix In The Foyer 2 – The Brentwood Centre, Brentwood

The second gig in the Phoenix In The Foyer series. A fairly decent turnout since it’s a new and ad hoc bunch of gigs, a specialist genre, and we’re definitely dependent on word of mouth. Probably about 50 people watching at its peak, which is 48 more than the worst turnout for a gig I’ve ever put on.

The acts were all very good performers and there was a lot of diversity in the styles too. Mik West was comparable to Dire Straits, Dave Jackson to Led Zeppelin/White Stripes and there was also a lot of old-style Mississippi washboard blues going on too.
