Tonight The Last Pedestrians received the award for Best Live Band at The Lion Oscars at The Lion on Mosley Street in Basford, Nottingham. There were some great bands nominated but The Last Pedestrians brought home the bacon beating off competition from the likes of Shades of Blue, Scotch Chocolate, Blue Yonder, Seven Little Sisters and many more.
Harry Stephenson (pictured above) received the award on behalf of the band remarking in his acceptance speech how grateful he was to all three people who had voted for the band and that he was glad that his time spent filling in multiple voting forms in different pens with different hand writing hadn't been wasted. He promised to throw the award at someone in the audience tomorrow night if people wanted to come to see The Last Pedestrians at The Lion to find out just why the band had won.
The award is well deserved as Harry and The Last Pedestrians have been playing drawing big crowds at the Lion for many years now. They had a Sunday night residency up until the end of 2011 when austerity measures were implemented and live music on a Sunday was replaced by a quiz about music. Cheaper but not as good!
The Last Pedestrians can be seen at The Lion, Mosley Street, Basford, Nottingham from 9.30 pm tomorrow Friday 24th February.
