Rock Night

by Lauren Staveley

After many, many weeks of preparation the 1st rock concert in 7 years was held at Callington Community College on Saturday 5th March 2005.

With 5 bands playing, the whole night was a huge success. The 1st band, Sourcebadger, made up of current 6th Form students got the crowd going and delivered a fantastic performance. The atmosphere continued to improve when the 2nd band, Valhalla, took to the stage to deliver a heavier set, which got the Mosh Pit going!

Third up was Criminal Damage, a group of 4 year 10 boys playing a range of different songs keeping the audience entertained for their 20 minute set.

The 4th group to play was a very special one. Performed by 6th Formers and Mr Kenning, the Spinal Tap tribute band went down a storm, playing the well known song Stonehenge among many others. Alex Parsons, a Y13 drummer, took his creativity to another level by making his own mask! Mr Kenning on bass guitar went for the whole look, and allowed a huge black 'tache to be drawn on in eyeliner before going on stage!

Dan Thomas, Y13, also did a solo performance of Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah that brought a more calming feel to the evening, although it seemed to be the calm before the storm as once Vinegar Stroke's name was mentioned the crowd went wild. VS played a full half-hour set doing a few covers and a few of their own songs, finishing on high playing Alive by Pearl Jam, which is their signature song.

Thank you to everyone who made this night a success, in particular Simon Spring the Guitar Teacher, Marc Doyle, Mr Stedman and all of the bands that not only gave up their evening to play but also all afternoon to help set up.
