“It was unbelievable - the best gig ever,” was how a Ripley musician described supporting rocker Jake Bugg in front of 10,000 people.
Bass player Rory Black says he is still on a high after opening for the Brit Awards nominee at Nottingham Capital FM Arena on Thursday, February 20, with his band the Swiines.
“It was brilliant,” said Rory of South Place. “We are only really used to playing somewhere for 300 to 400 people – but when 10,000 people clap it’s very loud!”
The Swiines, who feature platinum selling Jake Bugg’s cousin Scott on lead vocals, played a 30 minute set in front of the arena crowd, becoming the first Nottingham-based act to play the venue twice, having already played a battle of the bands competition.
The four piece will support Sheffield’s Reverend and the Makers as well as London’s the Rifles on their respective tours this year.
