Gary Brooker and friends in France

A few snaps from le Vigan 25 August 2013


Paul Holland, ex-Californian who lives not far from the Brooker gig, entertains his guests
 Linda and Roland from BtP at his Hammond A100

Gary Brooker and Friends, in one of the dressing-rooms, about to go on stage: Andy Fairweather Low, Gary Brooker, Judy Blair, Dave Bronze and Paul 'Beans' Beavis

As above, with the addition (in front) of Ashley Dow and Debbie Dow, aka Rag Mama Rag, who opened the show in fine style,
and joined GB  and the band for the two encores. Though resident in France these two Dows hail originally
from Colchester in Essex, UK ... not a million miles from Southend-on-Sea

 

Gary Brooker standing at the piano, mid-song: what number can this be, that prompts him thus to mime the words 'L 7'?

The excellent Dave Bronze on bass. As we've noted elsewhere on this website, 'every note a masterclass'

Paul Beavis on drums! And extremely dynamic player who would be difficult to capture
 in focus even for an expert photographer with a posh camera

The band's co-front-man, Andy Fairweather Low

 

Gary got up from the piano at one point during the set to adjust the head-orientation of this enigmatic totem
