'My best recollection of the set list but the order gets a little fuzzy at times,' writes our correspondent, Bob Lawrie. 'Corrections welcomed. I thought the band was a little restrained early on getting their feet wet with the orchestra but by the second set things seemed to be coming together ... (A Whiter Shade of Pale was very moving in my opinion and the arrangement brought it to life in new ways for myself. It was clear there was very different connection between band (Gary) and conductor (Bill Ebbins) ... He was very much into what was happening and the mood was light and fun between them. Clearly from my vantage point the Geoffs, Matt and Josh were enjoying themselves ... had a poor sight line to Gary but noted that others around me commented on his voice ... which seemed in fine form. Josh ripped his solo on Conquistador much to the delight of the audience ... very nice work. I suspect tonight will see more looseness in the performance at the outset.'
