Sapphire Bullets at The Grey Horse

The gig of the Sapphire Bullets Mahavishnu Orchestra tribute band was the finale of our hectic Saturday:
  • A 22 mile bike ride including a couple of turns round Richmond Park
  • A couple of hours gardening
  • A couple of hours shopping
  • Supper at Jamie's Italian (Oliver that is) in Kingston
  • The aforementioned gig by the Sapphire Bullets at The Grey Horse

And I have to say they were very good indeed. Far better that one might expect for a fiver at the door in the back room of a pub in Kingston. The drummer is an ex-session musician and the lead guitarist is a very talented man, with Pete on bass, an electric violinist and keyboards player to complete the line-up.

Our friends Bron and Maggie came to show their support and a beer afterward. We had to nick a couple of chairs from the main pub for them as it was standing room only. Then it was the last train home after a most excellent day.
