THANK YOU SONIC ROCKERS

Currently so exhausted and emotional, it's been over 2 weeks of hectic planning to get SRS 2021 up and running after the government announced the extension of restrictions. There are so many people to thank firstly Sharon who took on a lot of the organising, the Amadeus Sonic Rock PA crew, John, Jen and Simon for the lighting, Mark ,James and all at Stoke Prior, Tash and the security, Salutation MCC for manning the gates, all the fantastic bands. Jim Beerman , Michael and Peta Laws (video) , Grizzly ,Dave Hill (drums) , James Reid , Neil Soloman , Susan Tucker , Rob, Ian Tay, Melissa , James caterer for feeding us all , all the superb volunteers who worked the bar serving drinks and finally to all who came to make this such a special Sonic family reunion after over 18 months of lock down., We had to work within the restrictions and I thank you all to adhering to them. I apologize if I’ve left anyone out. I now need to recharge batteries before planning Onboard the Craft .You’re all stars xxx
