The Lamb, Devizes, September 10
10:00am Thursday 15th September 2011 in Leisure
The Doubtful Guest had the biggest crowd The Lamb has seen since Frank Turner last Saturday night, as Sheer Music put on their first show since a small makeover in the function room at The Lamb in St Johns St.
With the speakers flown from the ceiling, it's now much easier to actually see the band in question, and with the addition of a lighting rig, which is due shortly, they will have a fantastic little venue on our hands.
Sound engineer for the night, Ben Keen, excellently worked the desk and made all the bands that night sound amazing, especially the complex set up offered by The Haiku, who offered up some keyboards and alternative, pitch shifting, vocal mics - sounding a little like that radio voice sample found on Buggles classic, Video Killed The Radio Star. Their faultless set was not truly rewarded with the crowd they deserved.
Great Cheverell's Pete Assirati head lined in the front bar, with some whimsical musings and tales of 60's Love. The guy is a hippy at heart, but don't let that put you off, his voice and song quality are far better than that lazy comparison and his finale cover, a slow rendition of Come On Eileen was simply stunning!
Another perfect night of music at The Lamb in Devizes, with a full schedule running this Autumn, it's going to be the place to watch live music in Devizes.
