Toploader Photographs Oakham Grainstore Brewery

Toploader outside Oakham Station A Big thank you to them
for agreeing to this photo shoot.

Toploader are an English band from Eastbourne who formed in 1997, with over two million album sales to their name and a string of top 20 hits both home and abroad. Their debut album, Onka's Big Moka, sold over one million units and remained in the Top 5 of the UK Albums Chart for over six months. Their cover of King Harvest's song "Dancing in the Moonlight" became a global hit for the band. Their second album, Magic Hotel, reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart. This Saturday they performed here in Oakham at
The Grainstore Brewery.

Joseph Washbourn, Dan Hipgrave, Matt Knight and Rob Green outside 
Oakham Station. They tell me they will be recording a new
single in the next couple of weeks which should be released in
November titled "Turn it around"

Although I could not afford the admission fee it was great to
hear the band outside with others who could not get into the
venue because numbers were limited it sounded great.

After the performance Rob Persani from Rutland Radio
conducted an interview in the moonlight with Joseph Washbourn

Then fans came out for autographs and photographs

Many people had to listen from outside

Although the flames from the Grainstores BBQ could be
seen at some height the fire service was not required
