Review of the second day at Music on the Hill

Music on the Hill
The second day of Music on the Hill, the sun was shining, it was dresses and hats galore and the crowd were definitely ready to dance. 

The first band on stage was City Stereo, an unsigned band from Salisbury, who recently supported Mcfly on their 14 date tour in March and supported them today. City Stereo consist of: Ryan Scott on guitar, Ben Everest on drums, Dom Luke on bass and Ryan Kowalewski also on guitar. This band definitely warmed up the crowd playing songs from their album ‘Dance like you mean it’, such as their new song ‘Taste of Revenge’ as well as‘ The Rapture’, ‘Lothario’ and ‘Hit and Run’. City Stereo gained many fans at this gig and even took the time to sign autographs and have pictures taken with new fans as well as the loyal ones.

The Sugababes came onto stage just after 8, unfortunately they arrived late which limited their time on stage and they were welcomed by “We want Mcfly!” as well as boo’s. The girls performed their well known songs such as ‘Hole in the head, ‘Push the button’, ‘Get sexy’ and ‘About you now’ and also a special acoustic version of their new song ‘Freedom’ which will be on their eighth album. The fashion savvy girls took to the stage, Jade in a short grey dress with a pair of black heels, Amelle in a grey and black ruched dress and Heidi in a feathered black top and flared blue trousers. 

Mcfly kicked off their energetic set with ‘Party Girl’ from their album ‘Above the Noise’ and also performed ‘Too close for comfort’, ‘Transylvania’, ‘Corrupted’, ‘Shine a light’, ‘Obviously/ All about you’ and ‘If you see Kate and Danny Jones put his rap shoes on and covered Tinie Tempah’s song ‘Pass Out’. Their dedicated fans, who often travel miles to see the band, sang along to every word Mcfly have definitely progressed from their pop boy-band days and now have a rock influence sound. 

All in all, it was a great way for Demelza House to raise money and a perfect evening out for all who attended and they did indeed leave with smiles on their faces, having seen great performances while raising money for a great cause.
