Rock on the Rec

Sunday 23rd June 2019

The Recreation Ground, Recreation Ground Road, Stamford

Our Family Fun Day changed this year to Rock on the Rec so that we can concentrate on and enhance the music side of things.  It was still a great family day 

The event ran from 12:00  - 7:00 p.m.

There was a spectacular arrival of several Harley Davidson motor cycles and some stayed to listen to the music and enjoy the relaxing day.

 

There was food and drink available throughout the day with the beer tent (also selling soft drinks), the usual hog roast, jacket potatoes from the pink potatoe pod.  Not forgetting the ice cream man - especially welcome as it was a hot day.

 

There was fun for the children too with the fun fair and the Pony rides.

The annual car boot sale went ahead from 8:00 a.m. till late and many a bargain was found.

People  brought  along a chair or blanket to sit and fully enjoy a musical extravaganza - the sunshine made it even better.

 

The bands we had were:

Risky Trick

Risky Trick are a blues band playing classic and quirky blues, blues/rock and random musical gems.

 

 


 

JamRoom

4 musicians that have played together in other groups for a few years. This is a real blues/groove band with a mix of great tunes and powerful vocals JamRoom

Los Cajones

Los Cajones Stamford based Latin/Rock band putting sunshine smiles on people's faces.  They were with us at last year's event

Rebel Soul

Rebel Soul Playing music from the 50s and 60s through to modern day classics. Funk, soul and rock and roll and everything in between!

Clarksdale Contract

Clarksdale Contract are a blues band formed out of members of Peterborough groups 'Lizzy On The Loose' & 'The Tunnel'. Fuelled by a passion for blues music in all its forms and a desire to bring together different elements of other genres of music, Clarksdale Contract will entertain audiences both young and old with some classic tracks written by artists such as Muddy Waters & Howling Wolf, through to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton.  Look out for other songs that cross into Blues-Rock and Soul areas and maybe some original material in the future too.
