Sunday morning held a hidden gem as originally billed band Josh Flowers and the Wild failed to turn up but gave up a spectacular treat in the form of up-and-coming band Joywride.
Front-man Ollie Wride warmed up a thousand Sundown hangovers with his vocal gymnastics during an all original set.
Speaking to Ollie backstage, he said: 'We've really enjoyed playing live this summer. We haven't had the privilege of having the exposure which a reality TV show brings; we've built our reputation from working hard and producing good music from scratch.'
His energetic performance with guitarist Josh Dally was reminiscent of a younger version of Queen front-man Freddie Mercury.
Ollie said: 'We don't really like to be compared to anyone as all our material is completely original. Our music is a mixture of glamorous rock and were influenced by bands like Daft Punk and the Killers. We have never been to Norwich before but playing to the crowd this morning was amazing. We got such a great response and hope to return in the near future.'
Joywride seemed to go down a storm with the crowd, raising the energy level of a decidedly typical laid-back Sunday morning audience. Definitely one to watch for 2014.
