The LuminairesThe support band haven’t made it, so individual members of The Luminaires are performing short acoustic sets to fill in the time. By the time they take to the stage, a sizable crowd have turned for this last gig for a while. Drummer Dave is travelling for a few months so this is a bit of a farewell party.

As alluded to, these guys are all solo acoustic artists, and when they come together as The Luminaires something good happens, they are one of those genuine bands where the total is greater than the sum of the parts.

The Luminaires - pen workEven on the Cellar Bar’s small stage, they manage to put on a decent stage show, Aaron having just about enough room to put on the front man act while Joel, Spencer and Steve create some good sounds behind him. Aaron also shows off some newer vocal talents, working with Joel (and occasionally Dave) munged together by Conrad’s talents on the desk effects.

At the end of the night, one of the more dedicated fans shows off some nice pen work – Dave wants the photo for posterity.  Good gig, good crowd, and a good send off for Dave.
