Big Crowds At Rutland Day

Published: 17 Sep 12, 09:58am  |  Author: DG Music

The DG Offices relocated to the beautiful surroundings of Rutland Water on Saturday, for a day of sunshine and music. We were joined by huge crowds, happy to soak up the last of the summer rays and listen to some fantastic bands!

Rutland Day was an absolute success this year, bringing people across the county to celebrate all things local. This included headliners of the day By The Rivers, representing the musical talent to come out of Leicestershire. 

Having formed in 2010, this Roots Reggae band has gone from strength to strength, and took time out of their busy schedule to perform at Rutland Day!

Beginning with an acoustic set from the talented twosome, Jordan Birtles and Nile Barrow, crowds were immediately drawn into their catchy songs and unique style.

Beers were neglected and conversations were stilled as we listened to this wonderful pair! But not before long they were joined by the rest of the band, saxophones and trumpets in tow, to perform an awesome set that provided the perfect sound track to a sunny day.

Also playing were The Atlantics, who as usual provided a brilliant set with all our rock and indie favourites.  Watching lead singer, Tom Nurse, strut around the stage to the sounds of The Stones it was easy to forget that we were at Rutland Water and not Glastonbury!

Kicking off the day was Baptist Church band, Hundred Sons, whose original material went down a storm! The crowd loved these guys, and we are sure that with their cool Mumford & Sons esque sound, we will be hearing a lot more from them soon.

Hundred Sons were closely followed by the brilliant Rutland Big Band, led by conductor Marcus Reynolds. Playing a mixture of swing and big band classics, they were great fun to watch!

And we must not forget to mention the excellent Rutland Youth Dance Academy, whose street dance numbers were a great example of our local talented youngsters!

Rutland Day was also joined by the Rutland Food and Drink Festival, who showcased local produce, from preserves, to cheeses and wines! It was a real treat sharing some beautiful food under the summer sun with our friends and families, and an example of the quality of food and drink in our local area.

Rutland Day was brilliant; the music, the food and the lovely atmosphere all contributed to a wonderful day. We can't wait for next year!

Relaxing by the water!
