#80. Canbury Gardens Bandstand, Kingston. 13.8.16.


Picnic in the park with the Phantoms! The 'Lounge' Phantoms chuck away their electric guitars for some acoustic fun in the sun.
The band were initially planning to compete for a space on the pavement somewhere in busy Kingston for your acoustic listening pleasure but at the last minute managed to secure the bandstand in Canbury Gardens (by the riverside).
Thanks to our mates 'Op Acoustic' for providing support, thanks to all of the passers-by that stopped to listen, thanks to all the bands loyal followers who came along to join in, thanks to all the kids in the crowd who lent a hand on percussion (nice maracas!), thanks to special guests Fiona & Dave who joined the line-ups at one time or another and finally a massive thank you to Kingston Council for letting us play at the lovely Canbury Gardens bandstand.
Both bands had a great time, the sun did indeed shine & a fantastic afternoon was had by all. Fingers crossed the council will let us do it again next summer.



The 'Lounge' Phantoms were: Mark Gibson (lead vocals & keys), Kevin Rogers (guitar), Jason Biggs (guitar & vocals), Jon Novice (bass & vocals) & Alun Westoll (drums & vocals), plus special guest Dave Harris (ukulele & backing vocals).
