It was my wife’s birthday in June and before then a favorite singer-songwriter was playing live near us at a venue I had not heard of (All Hallows Leeds and there gig listing). So like an excited child in a sweet shop I showed my wife pointing and jumping up and down at the flyer on Facebook, she accepted this was a brilliant idea so we found a baby sitter (cheers Victoria!) and booked the tickets.
Not knowing what to expect we arrived and went into a community church building and took our seat with 20-30 others around tables. This shocked us as in our head Gentry is a stunning talent and this was an intimate gig for sure.
So already it had panned out to be a great birthday present for my wife, and the gig itself was great and such an intimate experience that we are thinking of taking our whole house group to another night by All Hallows.The icing on top of the cake was when the compare said…
“It’s a pay what you want real ale bar tonight”
Not that I abused the system but how trusting, kind and awesome is that, flipping love Christian ethos venues.
Anyway if you don’t know Gentry check out his site and music here : http://www.gentrymorris.com/news.cfm and go see him live if you can, think Damien Rice with better song writing, he also has one of the most gorgeous love songs ever (Love is Alive). Cavill supported him and they were also very good.
