Alan Esdaile… Excellent, the place is buzzing and you still got time to join us, with lots more great bands to play.

Tony Davis… A great Beatles Day yesterday. I introduced bands and artists on the acoustic stage from 12 noon to 5pm and then down to the Sussex Hall until the end at 10pm. Only managed to see a little bit on the main stage but thought Kid Kapichi were great. Lots of reports about the main stage and the amp fire so must have been an exciting day for my pals Andy Gunton and Dawn Wildman down there. I always enjoy introducing bands but was really pleased yesterday to introduce Benjamin Davis and Caitlin Merison on the acoustic stage and my friends The Kavemen (Chris Rigden) on the Sussex Hall stage. It was a day, however, tinged with sadness as I introduced Benjamin’s band Mania for their last gig. So good luck in the future. I’m sure we’ll all keep in touch and perhaps some of you will occasionally play together in the future. What always pleases me about Beatles Day is the number of young performers that appear like 13 year old Charlie fronting the band Charlie’s Angels. Great voice. Thanks to everybody that played and supported the event but most of all thanks to Pete Prescott who once again did a great job putting it all together.
