Last weekend I had the most amazing time ever. I mean concert-wise. The Hungarian community in the United Kingdom has been growing so fast for a few years now. And so is the need for Hungarian pop bands, musicians and other celebrities. This was the first time when Magna Cum Laude and Feró Nagy were invited to the UK to give a concert. It was mostly for Hungarians but I got to see some other people as well. The Clapham Grand as location proved to be breath-taking, not a common place for concerts.
I got to capture a few moments while enjoying their music…this was my first time photographing a concert and I pretty much enjoyed it.
The guys were discovered in 1999 in a talent show. They have several albums and have held many concerts over the past few years. The band has become one of Hungary’s most succesful pop-rock group.
Mihály Mező – singer, guitar
Tibor Szabó – guitar, composer
Mihály Kara – bass guitar, lyricist
Imre Kilián – drum
József Milek – piano
A few words about Feró Nagy, the guest star of the evening… He’s a rock singer and musician, actor and lyricist. He began singing as a hobby in the 1960s in different rock bands, and became famous as the member of the band ‘Beatrice’, and later ‘Bikini’. He has released many albums and played in several movies, TV shows and theatrical plays as well. He was also one of the members of the jury in different talent shows.
So when he showed up on the stage…
…I got enchanted by his amazing voice! It’s was unbelievable, totally different than on TV or in the radio! I got a kind of shivering going through my spine when he started to sing. Being over 60, his voice has such a strength that is hard to describe!
I’m so happy that I could captured this moment of my friend, Meskó…
