A HUGE thank you to everyone that came to Stars & Stripes on Saturday.
The event was great fun, the bands were fantastic and the money is still coming in! Particular highlights included Anarchist Wood's tiger-suit clad burlesque dancer, Simon Hardeman's cover of Mud's Tiger Feer (whilst donning a rubber tiger mask) and Robbie Boyd's ridiculously sweet collaboration with 11-year old George and 8-year old Ellie Lane - performing a song written by the pair.
Thanks in particular to Mel Thompson, who pledged £100 to the Tiger Campaign on the night, and to Algy O'Connell, our hero of the hour, who flawlessly provided all technical support on the day... despite having already worked a 3am shift that morning. Algy, you're a star.
For those of you who couldn't make it - you're in luck. We filmed much of the event and sections from all sets (courtesy of James Gray, who rather trustingly lent me £6K worth of kit and declined my offer of a kidney as deposit).
