Robert Cray Band: live in Adelaide, Australia May21

Robert Cray Band: live in Adelaide, Australia

Robert Cray Band: live in Adelaide, Australia When you peruse through someone’s vinyl collection there’s always an old favourite in there. When you come across Robert Cray’s 1986 album Strong Persuader, you know that this is a person worth knowing. This album was my introduction to the American guitarist and it’s an album that I play often. Sure, it wasn’t his first and there have been plenty after it, but the tone of both the vocal and the sublime guitar, was something that hooked me. Not only was the playing magical but we had a guitarist that took the blues and allowed jazz, soul and R&B flow through it. The vocal sung out crystal...

  The Idol Dead Happy Now Tour, Duffy’s Bar Leicester 12/05/18 Plus James Cull, Midnight Dogs & The Senton Bombs This was going to an interesting night: four acts in a small back room in a bar. The room was quite empty when first act local boy and solo guitarist singer James Cull came on, but as soon as he began to sing the people started to appear and it wasn’t long before there was a decent audience for him. Not surprising, as this lad has a beautiful rich voice not unlike Eddie Veder with the power to match, his mix of soulful ballads and original songs created a wonderful ambience and was a great start to the night. I would...

Robert J Hunter Band & Sari Schorr Live at the Raven Rooms Corby Having recently seen and reviewed Sari at HRH Blues I was excited to see her again in a more relaxed venue. The Raven Rooms was originally a ballroom and is perfect suroundings for a blues gig.   Supporting tonight was the Robert J Hunter Band, a London 3 piece but originally from the Channel Islands. They play what I like to call dirty blues, that laid back sound; but can also rock it up as well. Robert himself has the gravelly voice perfect for this style and along with his impressive guitar work entertained the crowd with songs from his recently released self titled...

Ugly Kid Joe @ The Garage, Glasgow May03

Ugly Kid Joe @ The Garage, Glasgow

Ugly Kid Joe @ The Garage, Glasgow The boys are back in Glasgow to promote latest album “Stairway to Hell”. They always bring the party and this time one of the best live bands from the UK. I have seen Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons many times now and every time they have played a blinder but tonight they took it to a different level. I do not know if it was the bigger venue or if they now have amassed enough gigs to be completely in tune with each other but it bodes well for their headline tour that has just been announced. The last time I saw them was supporting Airbourne and the sound was awful that night. No such issues tonight as...

Tax The Heat @ Stereo, Glasgow May03

Tax The Heat @ Stereo, Glasgow

  Tax The Heat @ Stereo, Glasgow Tax The Heat stroll into Glasgow at the end of their “Change Your Position” tour and they showed just how good a band they are and why lovers of all genres should be paying attention. York based duo Naked Six are support tonight and knowing very little about them I had no expectations. The clockwork orange theme had me intrigued but I was a bit unsure of how they would sound with only two members. Well was I shocked and stunned. With just drums and guitar those boys filled the room with sound. Tom Witts on drums was like a man possessed, he didn’t as much play drums as beat the living shit out of them....

Halo Tora album launch @ Stereo, Glasgow May02

Halo Tora album launch @ Stereo, Glasgow

Halo Tora album launch @ Stereo, Glasgow The boys play a hometown show to promote the release of their most recent and stunning new album “ Man of Stone: First Chapter”. I am a fairly recent convert to this band since seeing them for the first time last year. Since that date their debut album “Omni/One” has never been far away from my ears. Add to that having had the chance to hear the latest album for a couple of weeks before release and I have been blown away. I will be honest, prog was never a big thing for me and as I got older the further away it has become. The twiddly diddly parts kind of bored me but Halo Tora grabbed me from the...

Skindred @ 02 Academy, Glasgow May02

Skindred @ 02 Academy, Glasgow

Skindred @ 02 Academy, Glasgow Skindred hit Glasgow and some big tings are in store. We have two support bands tonight and first up are the brilliant Danko Jones. The Canadian three piece were on fire tonight, they brought their brand of catchy ass kicking rock and their A game. I have missed the band live to date but love everything recorded but live they definitely crank it up to a whole new level. They opened with “I Gotta Rock” and went straight for the jugular with old and new fans. “Sugar Chocolate” is up next and it is full throttle as Danko slithers and delivers the song title for all. His cheeky smile tells a story all on its own....

The Quireboys @ The Classic Grand, Glasgow

  The Quireboys @ The Classic Grand, Glasgow With the brilliant new release “White Trash Blues” and off the back of an amazing performance at Winter Storm festival the boys are back in Scotland…I would say storm in but it is more like hobble as Spike strolled up to the venue with a walking stick and a cast on his leg. Now if the Quireboys picked the support band based on drinking ability they went straight to the top of the pyramid with The Black Aces. The drinking prowess is legendary but do you know what? They can rock your ass off as well. I first caught the band on the Aussie Wrecking Crew tour a while back and if what I can...

HRH Blues IV O2 academy Sheffield Day Two 15/04/18

HRH Blues IV O2 academy Sheffield Day Two 15/04/18 Once again the lucky ones were seeing some unplugged acts in stage 2 before the full sets, today’s acts were Catfish, Black Thunder Review, and Big Canyon. I had heard about Catfish and was looking forward to seeing them perform: I wasn’t disappointed. Young Matt can play an acoustic like an electric, and his skills were on show for this short set. I wasn’t going to miss their main stage performance. Black Thunder Review are lLocal Sheffield lads originally called Socrates Johnson but after a number of line up changes they settled on the Black Thunder name. Their influences range from...

The White Buffalo, 02 Academy, Glasgow

  The White Buffalo, 02 Academy, Glasgow The White Buffalo is one of those performers you question if they are as good as you remember…until you go back to see them and you get blown away all over again. I never miss a show when the band come to Glasgow and thankfully he never misses us out and with a strange quirk of luck we are early on the tour, something that many people were wishing they were but more on that later. This is always a played down show, no big light show, no theatrics and no stage wear. The music is left to do the talking as it should be but there is always a relaxed atmosphere which lets you focus on the...

  HRH Blues 4, O2 Academy Sheffield 14th &15th April 2018 . Welcome back to the steel city for the 4th HRH Blues: a weekend to see some of the legends of blues and many young and new and upcoming acts. Once again Royalty and VIP punters were going to get a short unplugged session on stage 2, but this time over two days. The bands on this Saturday afternoon were: 12.00 The Della Grants, 12.30 Brian Rawson Band, 1.00 Jim Kirkpatrick Heavy Weather and 1.30 The Rain breakers. I enjoyed the Della Grants set and at 1pm they were playing a full set on main stage so off I went. Day One main stage The Della Grants. Having seen them kick off...

For whatever reason I have always missed Beth Hart in Glasgow so I made the decision to travel to Nottingham and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Support tonight is in the form of The Kris Barras band. I had found the band a few months ago and fell for them instantly so when they were announced as support I was delighted. I was looking forward to it even more when I read he was doing an acoustic...

This was being billed locally as the big gig of the week and there was a reason for this, Rock royalty were coming to to grace the stage of the famous rock city Notts,but before that the crowd were in for extra treats first with the all female three piece from Scotland The Amorettes At times unfairly I feel being called just another AC/DC sounding band Gill, Heather, and Hannah,are a hell of a lot more than that having seen them a few times before on a much smaller stage they...
