Zuby Duby Doo!
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

July 30, 2011: A breath of fresh air blew through Hatherleigh Festival's first night in the Square marquee last night with a rousing hiphop performance from Bournemouth-based Zuby. Zuby held the crowd with a 45 minute act that merged the risks of rap with a personality that was determined to entertain young and old alike. We sometimes did not get the full meaning of the lyrics (he said that's because we were not listening fast enough!) but the fun and message elements came over well. Not an easy gig, but it worked. Later, I'm in Love took over (original they certainly were, and the double drums bit hit the mark, but we would have preferred to hear some easy music hooks as well), followed by Killamonjambo (who we missed, sorry!) Meanwhile, down in the Centre, the Take That Experience wowed the crowds with their tribute to the real thing. From the programme, it seems that today could bring some more originality - see you in the Square for the Hog Ranch, Dan the Hat plus the Rob, Dave and Izzy orchestra? And don't forget all the other events going on around town. Full programme here.
