Field.jpg
As short performance around the field, up close and dangerous to the onlookers, before dancing in the arena.
By now, Andrew has joined the band.

Wide-Field.jpg
Not so upclose onlookers, but at least we have the monopoly of the sound system so the instruments can be heard

The team in action
