DreadZone! Had a poor slot last time at Cropredy. They need an evening to get everyone buzzing.

So if someone does badly one year playing down the bill, invite  them back to see if they'll do better higher up the bill? With respect I see some flaws in your strategy...

They were absolutely outstanding the first time they played (2009?).  The crowd was buzzing.  What happened last time, then?

They didn't do badly. They had an afternoon slot where the crowd were wandering around, getting food etc. I think Dread Zone had another gig later to get to. I meant their time slot was all wrong for them. They need an evening slot. They know how to get the crowd going, and even those who are not familiar with them cant resist the beat!

RT & Electric Trio are in the area....I know *he* said he'd only play every 5 years, but maybe he's changed his mind?.....

The reason he's not yet announced - because he's playing (again, this time as a trio) Gawsworth Hall on the Wednesday before (8th) - £32.50 is good value, I think - BUT they have contracted him not to announce any other date that week within x miles until Gawsworth have sold their tickets which have only just gone on sale - so maybe an announcement at the middle of April/start of May? I personally think that's quite a likely scenario.

I usually don't like that sort of thing ,the sun was shining and Id had a beer or two . I was content to lie on the rug and let the music waft over.

By the end of the first number I was in the pit disgracing myself with what an obese 60 something hopes to call dancing.

THEY WERE BRILLIANT.

i spent the rest of the weekend shouting "Ahoy" to everyone after one of the songs.

Dreadzone were great the first time, but when I bought a live album of theirs, Live at Sunrise I was disappointed to hear exactly the same set. Bit of a one-trick pony, I thought.

A bit like seeing the Reduced Shakespeare Company for the second time, when you realise all the "ad-libs" are carefully scripted.

Also, in the five years between their Cropredy appearances, their personnel changed somewhat. As with Hayseed Dixie, the replacements didn't live up to their predecessors. IMHO, of course.

If we're going to speculate wildly, Beck's 2016 single was Wow.

Its a shame when a good act lets you down on a repeat performance. Pearce Brothers second time around didn't do it for me, even though I was looking forward to them. Same set, same mock humility. Wore a bit thin!

On their previous visit they played in the late afternoon, if I remember correctly, and they were great

The line up was exactly the same. Spee, Leo, Greg and Chris. Not sure who was on the PC/DJ duties for 2015 but the rest was the same band.

I was thinking there'd been barely any changes too...In 2012, "James 'Bazil' Bainbridge joined the group replacing Chris Oldfield though"... that's the only one I can find online.
