  • Great night, but well done to Run DAC who had the best vocalist, IMO

  • Once again, Lovells rocked hardest and (as the lead singer predicted before they even started!) once again, Lovells were robbed! ;-)

  • Lovells were efficient but BLP had already won it by then. Agree about the Run DAC singer on Nutbush

  • Re Lovells rocking the hardest - covers from "Glee" should never be mentioned in the same breath as Rock! Angus Young would be ashamed.

  • @Anonymous 3:59: Doh! It's not a cover from Glee, it's a song by Journey. Are you sure you should have been at a rock gig? Try some musical theatre instead.

  • An excellent and very enjoyable evening which was perfectly organised. The ac/dc solo was fantastic. Look forward to more of the same next year.

  • The sets were all amazing, and there were some VERY inventive medleys. The drummers all shone for me last night - geniuses one and all, and such energy and enthusiasm. A top night that will take some beating!

  • They may not have won, but Lovells had the best song of the night with a blistering version of Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well". BLP could probably make a good living as a wedding band - if they didn't have to split the cash 8 ways!

  • We were asked to enter and were about to until we heard the strict criteria:

    Compulsory purchase of £800 worth of tickets
    Entry fee of £200
    And all for 20 mins on stage (which goes faster than a blink)

    I appreciate it's for charity however, bands should be given more choice to spend.

    Congrats to the winners...

  • The New Teen Titans were indeed robbed as they showed true range by playing an awesome variety of true rock classics in contrast with BLP's populist choices! Don't stop believing Titans...............!

  • Pinsent Masons should have won it. As the judges said, they truly embodied the "spirit of the 100 Club".

    All the other bands were just like wedding bands. No real rock'n'roll. Just Sax-a-plenty, competently played middle of the road, Pinsent Masons' Rebels were the only band that had real attitude and that got the crowd moshing.

    Their version of the Britney Spears songs complete with Guns'n'Roses, The Police and Pink FLoyd was truly original.

    Would love to see them live again.

    Spirit of the 100 Club

  • Re: Anonymous | 2-May-2010 9:06 am - sour grapes perhaps??

    Or were you struggling to find 40 mates / clients to have support you? The bands that played didn't..........

  • "Rebels were the only band that had real attitude" - which gig were you at?

    It was a rock contest - 20 minutes (clearly some had no idea what that meant, perhaps it should have been 3 units) and rock music - not soul, R&B or big band.

    Add in qualities like non stop set, singing and playing in tune and a rock chick vocalist that could and did dance and there was only one band in it - the well and truly robbed Eclectic Zoo from Blake Lapthorn.
