Polar Bear

Polar Bear at XOYO

A couple of photos of Polar Bear at XOYO in London on Wednesday April 2nd. This gig was a real challenge to photpgraph with the atmospheric and moody lighting, so in contrast to the hundreds of good photos from HRH Prog a few days earlier I only managed to get a handful of usable images.

As a jazz act they’re well outside my usual comfort zone, but I still found them a very entertaining if challenging live band. There will be a review in due course.
