Well, that was exciting. We* backed up London dance crew, Definites, last night in the finals of London’s Best Dance Crew 2010 – and they only gone and won!
(*We – being members of Maracatu Estrela do Norte & Eri Ekon, adding some Brazilian drumming spice to the backing tunes for the first of Definitives’ two sets)
When the videos of the finals are available, I’ll post them up, but suffice to say they were awesome and well deserved the win – though all the groups were pretty damn good.
Here they are in another event – a pity the music isn’t a bit more audible, but you get the idea.
And yes, we also came on to the same level of applause and cheering. Nice!
Backstage: here’s the big cheque they were presented with, alongside the drum I played – and some lovely legs! (not mine)
Impressively, it was presented to them by the only current recipient of the Victoria Cross, Johnson Beharry. Quite an honour.
And here’s Lilly & Sam in front of the splendid artists entrance at the back of Fairfield Halls.
Well done Definitives, you rocked!
