Band du Lac - One Night Only Live Review


by Sherrill Fulghum

.
With a line up of guests like Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Roger Taylor, The Drifters, Katie Melua, and Chris Barber joining Band du Lac members Gary Brooker, Paul Carrick, Any Fairweather Low, and Mike Rutherford the DVD of the concert was destined to be a good one. And it was. It's a shame that the camera work took away from such a great show. Band du Lac is a group of musicians - many of whom come from the Surrey area - who come together from time to time for an evening of music and friendship in order to raise money for various charities. The concert has been compared to a posh Glastonberry. This year the site for the concert was the Wintersfall Estate in Surrey, England. The charity chosen to benefit from the show was HASTE (Heart and Stroke Trust Endeavour).

Amidst all the legends and long time musicians was the only female performer, besides the back-up singers, Katie Melua. During her three song set young Katie showed why she belonged on stage with the longtime star of rock'n'roll. Band du Lac and its guest performers played some of their favourites; among them were "Lay Down Sally", "Cocaine", "Photograph", "A Whiter Shade of Pale", "Tequila", and "I Can't Dance". The 23 song concert runs for nearly two hours. A short behind the scenes interview is also included on the DVD.

On the other hand, as great as the music is the camera work is lacking. Every rule taught to a first semester television and film course student was broken. After only a few minutes it became much more enjoyable to simply listen to the show instead of watching it. Numerous shots of the back of people, chopping off musicians heads, and the quick editing techniques are no place for in a professional concert video.
