Yep, WE WON! Thanks to all you guys for voting for us in the Band of the Year category for the very first year of these awards, and making such an important contribution to the Teenage Cancer Trust…Who deserve every penny for their amazing work!
It's an absolute honour to be considered by so many people to be the best band in Brighton…especially in a city that has one of the best music scenes in the country and such a vast amount of amazing bands!
The night of the awards was a night none of us will ever forget…
His Royal Highness Roger Daltrey presented the award to us, in front of a room full of great musicians and industry types… the most legendary, and incredible of all being none other than Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page who then graced the same stage we had been on, to collect his Lifetime Achievement Award.
At the after show party we were lucky enough to spend a very unexpected amount of time speaking to the two men mentioned above… about all manner of subjects, including our performance at the show, (We played "Inside") which they both apparently LOVED! WOW! Loved enough to stand and applaud at the end apparently, and loved enough in Roger's (as we now call him!) case, to ask us to do something very exciting next year with him and his band WHO you may have heard of???!!! We will give you details when we can!
Forgive us for the amount of !!!!!!!!!!'s!
All in all, it was an incredible experience and one we will never forget… and it has only made us strive harder and harder to improve on what we have already achieved in our relatively short time together, and made us more excited to write and record another record… and we have now added another goal to our ever growing list…
Winners of the 20th ever Brighton Music Awards… Lifetime Achievement Award!
See you there!
Thanks again friends!
Ad, Clark, Mike and Rob.
