The fabulous Soul Intention big sound soul band played two scorching sets in North Devon last night. It is not often we get a chance to see a full on professional big band, with five piece brass section, pushing out brilliant Soul Oldies. Chris, the male vocalist, seems to capture the real feel of these Soul Classics while Terry, female vocals, has a gorgeous mellow tone which enriches the mix. The audience danced all night. Can’t wait to take some more shots of this smashing band.
The Pier House at Westward Ho! last night was rocking to the sounds of funky new band Soul Intention.
Chris, the raunchy male lead vocalist piled it on and Terry, lead female vocals wowed the audience with sublime soul oldies.
Soul Intention has an eleven member line up of experienced and professional musicians who have come together under the stewardship of Trevor Davis who lays down the bass line.
A five piece horn section keeps the groove running while Tom lets rip on lead guitar. Drums and keyboards compliment the ensemble.
Superb arrangements by Tony Oreshko.. Never stop dancing .. the audience could not get enough.
The event organised by Bideford Lions Club helped to raise funds for the wonderful Children’s Hospice South West .. with thanks to Braddicks Holiday Centre, Westward Ho! for providing the venue.
Checking through my archives I stumbled across this image taken on London South Bank. It was one of the first shots I took on my then, new Fuji X100. I still think the fabulous 23mm focal length of the X100 series is a hard one to beat for street photography. For fun I ran this image through ‘image tricks lite’ from BeLight software which makes a change from Adobe.
