What former Sherborne residents said about the festival.
Based in the South West of England, Electric Temple rose from the ashes of Full Tilt who were well known on the local circuit. Playing a mixture of classic guitar-based rock covers that you may not hear that often they try and steer clear of the usual, overplayed ‘standard’ covers in favour of songs that are mostly equally well known but that don’t figure on many set lists. Material is drawn from the last few decades and a typical set will last around two hours and include material from Status Quo, Thin Lizzy, Manic Street Preachers, Dr Feelgood, Sex Pistols, Jet, Queen to name but a few.
Bad Edukation, play classic rock hits from 60's 70's and 80's, everything from ACDC to ZZ Top. Great somerset band featuring Abbey104 Presenter Syd Guppy on drums.
When Jamie Turner walked into a neighbour’s house in 1956 and heard Don’t Be Cruel on a wind up gramophone, he was smitten. He consequently followed Elvis and all the other great rockers from then on.
After getting hold of an acoustic guitar and learning many of those songs, it was not until arriving in Dorset, after years in the music business, that he put his Rock’n’Roll band together to play all those crazy danceable songs about unrequited love and the lifestyle of the teenager in the USA back in the 50’s.
The Jamie Turner Band has been busy rockin’ it up at parties in the UK and Europe for the last 25 years now and there is no sign of their letting up soon.
