T Review

...Over on the King Tut’s stage meanwhile, Kyle, Steve, Pete and Kieren were playing the “gig of their lives” in front of 15,000 people.

Belting out all the songs from the debut number one album Hats Off To The Buskers, including their three hit singles, the audience reception was unbelievable.

Right to the back of the packed tent, hands were in the air and people were dancing their socks off, singing along to every word.

The Dryburgh lads, who just over a year ago were still relatively unknown outside of Dundee, rocked the tent with their Dundee street pop-rock which has charmed kids throughout the UK, Europe and Japan.

“I think that was the best gig I’ve ever played,” lead guitarist Pete Reilly said afterwards.

“It was superb, a fantastic experience and I couldn’t believe the size of the crowd in that tent. The noise was unbelievable.

“We’ve played some amazing gigs over the past year but nothing compares with that.

“We all really enjoyed it and it was brilliant for our mates in the crowd, they’ve been fantastic over the past couple of years and to see all those familiar faces every time we play is fantastic. They deserve a lot of the credit for what’s happened to us.”

Sheer emotion in the aftermath of their superb gig struck The Law, with Stuart Purvey, Steve Anderson and brothers Simon and Martin Donald visibly moved by the reaction of the crowd in the T-break stage.

“That was brilliant, better than anything we’ve ever done before,” lead guitarist Steve said. “The best bit was walking on stage. The buzz was unbelievable, fantastic. We had to live up to the hype that’s been building up and we did it. The fans were brilliant.”
