Trio Spongo ONSTAGE 3pm
On a hot summers night in July 2007 Rich Robinson and Jym Plumer received yet more shocking news that yet another band had pulled out of the mini festival that they and a few other friends were organizing. The 'if you book them they will come' attitude may have worked for Wayne and Garth but had certainly backfired for these two. With only 3 bands confirmed and just 4 days to go until the start of LODGESTOCK there was no other option but to form a band! So getting in Lewis Wright to play bass, Rich Robinson on guitar & vocals and Jym Plumer playing drums the beginnings of TRIO SPONGO were in place. Two practices later they had a list of 10 songs to play at LODGESTOCK. They have since recorded their debut album, 26 Acres, and recently played live at Jagz in Ascot to celebrate their first birthday to one of their biggest audiences to date.

Leading roles in productions of Raffles of Singapore, Showboat, Chicago, Hot Mikado and Stepping Out- The Musical brought huge but wonderful challenges of ‘music in character’.

I don’t think I have ever seen this part played better.’ It has been a busy time for Judy performing either as a solo artist or with a band for functions and special events around the country.

The Black Hats ONSTAGE 8pm
"Moddish urchins in the mould of The Jam and The Who, they’re strident enough to fit in at a punk party, but with songs like ‘Just Fall’ and ‘We Write Things Down’, they’re anthemic yob-savants of pop’s highest order." -Nightshift Music Magazine
"In true 'Hats style', both tracks display punk energy in spades, bags of melody, shouty bits (of course) and highly impressive production work." - Tunnels single review.
-Oxfordshire Music Magazine"‘Magnets’ is the sound of a band growing in confidence and ambition. This is grand, energetic and tune-filled rock, made by musicians who are supremely committed and are finding both their voice and their space." -www.oxfordbands.com
"The vocal harmonies in particular are effortlessly magnificent while the lead guitar has that Britpop trick of threatening overblown soloing histrionics but always pulling back at the last minute, letting the song breathe and breathing more life into the song. Top stuff." -www.oxfordbands.com
"The band have clearly honed their sound over the past couple of years, and with ‘Tunnels’ it feels like they’re a band completely comfortable with their own abilities – nothing is overdone, but each part is impressive nonetheless. They swerve from Interpol-based hugeness to Blood Red Shoes style riffery without it sounding contrived – a massive feat." -Sam King, Oxford Music Blog
