The Big Friday Night music festival held at The George Spence Academy on 4th July looked like it was in danger of getting washed away at one point. The rains came and came heavy, but that didn't stop the crowd from rocking up to the venue, kitted out with umbrellas and rain macs, nor the acts themselves who kept spirits high and the audience splashing as well as clapping!
Luis was 2nd up at the festival, and a good crowd had gathered. Kicking off with brand new song, Blow It All, he set out his stall early with a fast-paced beat-strum number that grabbed the attention and kept the heads bobbing.
Then it was into the rest of the set. All original numbers, including Take A Look, Love and A Little Bit Like Kiss Me, before pleasantly surprising the audience with his own take on the Foo Fighters' Learn To Fly.
"The crowd were great. They braved the rains and stuck it out in the interests of live music and support of the event, which made it even more special to have been involved."
"I was really happy that my original music was so well received, and the feedback I got from other acts and the organisers was excellent. I felt proud to be a part of it, and I'm really made up that the event was a success."
"There was a lot of new, young bands showcasing the event and I was really impressed with their musicality and approach to doing live gigs. Nottingham has some great young talent rising."
Luis' next solo gig is at the Beeston Carnival on Saturday 12th July, Broadgate Park, Beeston. Also take a look at the Photos section where you can see some pictures of Luis at the Big Friday Night Event.
