It comes into its own as a platform, a venue, a stage for local bands to scream, shout, sing and to shred, but most of all, to be heard.
Friday was no exception, local act 'Fortunes' had been there all evening waiting for their time, then at 10.30 it came...
Its been a long time coming thats for sure, and since meeting with Rob and Jon nearly 2 months ago i've been itching to photograph the up and coming local band, with a date booked well in advance the suspense has been increasing.
(Even my cameras been pining to shoot some live music, so of course i had to oblige it and shoot this momentous occasion.)
Although it's been a while since my last gig, its been even longer since i returned to Southend-on-Sea's 'Chinnerys', the venue is as important to Southend as its Pier, High-Street, Unusual inhabitants and stretch of beach all put together.
And here is why.
