Oxjam Bournemouth 2012 launch day flyer

Piper @ John's 40th bday CeileighToday is a big day for all fans of live music in the Bournemouth & Poole area – the launch day of Oxjam Bournemouth 2012.  And I’m away at a family live-band-run Ceileigh in Oxfordshire (Happy Birthday John) – piper included!  We leave to get back at a reasonable time, means there is long enough left of the night for me to reach Chaplins & the Cellar Bar to join most of final act Kentucky Fight Club’s set.

KFC @ Oxjam Launch, Cellar Bar 12 MayThey are a three piece tonight; I later learn that this is going to be KFC‘s normal mode for a while, drums, bass and mandolin only.  Even so the jumping on stage is enticing, the stomping on the ground encouraging, and the music’s good too, with KFC own-brand covers mixed in with their original material, all making a great end to what has been a fantastic day.
