The Vinos

Been chatting with the lovely Grethe Borsum about music and photos for a while so it was very nice to be asked to do photos of The Vinos last week for their new website which launched today.

The Vinos are all well established young musicians hailing from Norway, South Africa, Lancashire and, er, Liverpool but with a fine pedigree of musical heritage behind them and a fine rock sound to go with it.

We met up in a local park for the shoot and did the group shots before a slightly more involved set up to do the head shots. Two of the band held up a yellow A1 piece of paper whilst the third member poured sugar free blackcurrant juice over the band person getting their portrait taken (representing the vino element in the band name). Oh and it was done in near darkness too. We didn’t get any funny looks at all.

Anyway, for more info on the band (and to see more pics and video) please head to here.

Head On 2013

Hard to believe that this was the fifth annual night of the Head On gigs organised by the brilliant Vince Killen (where has the time gone?) but a brilliant night of music and support for the Mersey Head And Neck Cancer Centre.

Last night we were treated to The Vinos (more work from them soon) with a nice bit of rock to get the evening going to a packed crowd at Leaf on Bold St. Next up was Crowded Scouse (the band that features Vince on bass (guess where they are from and who they cover) and got the crowd up dancing. The evening finished with Chegwin pumping out some rock classics and got everyone bouncing about. Great times.

Towards the end of the night Vince announced that well over £30000 has been raised for the charity from the gigs over the years so it’s been great to see the support grow. Here’s a link to the charity organisation too.
