Singers Simon Davies (pictured below) and Carl Komuro (left) are veterans of the 'open mic' sessions Carly runs regularly at the Hobgoblin pub in Maidenhead through her own talent company Wurlybird. They sang up a storm at the Bandstand Marathon, mixing their own songs in with effective cover versions of others people's.
Her sister Lisa Kenny also sang, getting the whole audience joining in with kazoos.
Carly works with the Royal Borough running events under the heading Maidenhead Live with town manager Steph James. Her event on Sunday - also run with Steph - was definitely live and full of talented performers.
Local bands Mercia and Undercovers provided music later in the day. The Salvation Army Brass Band rounded it all off.
Music for younger listeners was provided by Teddies Music Club and the Hartbeeps.
There were 18 stalls as well as rides, a craft market and lots more. Carly's Wurlybird colleague Laura Spires also helped behind the scenes.
Carly's event was timed to coincide with others happening across the country, commemorating the end of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Perfect weather made it an afternoon to remember.
