FAVERSHAM TOWN – HOME / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 S...

  It started with dramatic late goals and it was fitting that the season – at home, anyway – should finish with yet another one. Substitute Keanu Williams got the 90th minute winner to cap a superb Sittingbourne fightback which overcame local rivals Faversham. It gave Sittingbourne their highest points total for eight seasons – with one more game still to go – and in front of their second biggest home crowd of the season. Not only did the match finish in style for Sittingbourne, but what followed immediately afterwards was just as memorable in its own way. Both manager Nick Davis and captain Jono Richardson brought their young children...

Joe Bonamassa, Live At The Usher Hall Edinburgh 18/04/17  It’s been 4 years since Blues/Rock superstar Joe Bonamassa last played in Scotland’s capital, but he’s been far from idle in that time. Without a doubt one of the hardest working men in music, he tours relentlessly, yet somehow finds time to participate in a myriad of other projects: From backing soul singers such as Beth Hart and Mahalia Barnes to his funk/rock supergroup Rock Candy Funk Party, he’s even had a recent studio reunion with Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherninian and Jason Bonham to record Black Country Communion 4 – which is certainly one of the most anticipated rock releases...

Welcome to HRH Blues. Apr20

Welcome to HRH Blues.

  Welcome to HRH Blues. Once again the HRH team have managed to get together some of the biggest names on the blues circuit worldwide and this year was extra special, there was going to be a second stage and even more bands to see for the loyal royalty fans and media people. Day 1 We kicked off with Dani Wilde with her collection of blues country and gospel tunes which got the early crowd clapping along and straight away everyone knew this was going to be one special festival. Next up were The Billy Walton band, a five piece from New Jersey complete with a jumping jiving saxophonist and a trumpet player and right from the start you...

Bigfoot @ Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow Apr18

Bigfoot @ Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow

  Bigfoot @ Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow Shock City Productions do it again, 3 cracking bands for a tenner meant that in a busy night for gigs in Glasgow this was definitely the best value for your money by a long shot. The night kicked off with local boys Anchor Lane who are probably the busiest band in Glasgow at the moment. They have been racking up the home town gigs and unlike the first time I saw them live they are now well known to the regular gig goers present tonight. Each gig sees this already tight unit impress me more and their confidence is growing in leaps and bounds. They burst into “ Twenty Sixteen” which is one of the...

  Titan Breed – Edge Of The World This may be Titan Breed’s debut EP but with members rising like phoenixes out of previous bands you know they are going to produce something good, this good I was not expecting though. I have managed to catch them live and from that very first show I was...

The Qurieboys play The Diamond Rock Club Apr13

The Qurieboys play The Diamond Rock Club

LIVE REVIEW: Too Much Of A Good Thing? Not when The Qurieboys play The Diamond Rock Club AUDIENCE drunk, band half-cut, PA booming out – all boxes ticked for The Quireboys playing the Diamond Rock Club – ‘This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll’ and this was rock ‘n’ rill in its finest, glorious excess. There is always a sense of occasion when Spike and co play, and the camaraderie between the band and the audience is no forced shenanigan, but is rather an intimacy that comes not from excessive adoration, but from a forged friendship rather than over familiarity. Getting the party started were the Last Great...

LIVE REVIEW: Thunder push through the time barrier...

LIVE REVIEW: Thunder push through the time barrier to deliver smooth rock excellence FOR some time Thunder have been the go to band for AOR music, with a back catalogue that stirs many a heart of those that recall their halcyon days of the band ass chart masters. And, they are still churning out albums chock full of songs with their trademark sound. Before Thunder took the stage on Friday (March 31st) there was the small matter of local heroes Trucker Diablo. However, whoever in their wisdom thought it was a good idea to open the doors as late as 8pm and then have the Big Truck start at 8:15 seems to have missed a trick. That meant that...

Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate @ Audio, Glasgow Apr05

Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate @ Audio, Glasgow

  Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate @ Audio, Glasgow It has been a while since Jizzy Pearl has played Glasgow due to all manner of reasons with tonight’s bass player stealing them away to Edinburgh every tour(no hard feelings, honest…grrrrr). For that reason alone this one was pencilled in my diary as soon as it was confirmed. It has been far too long since I have seen the Stoopdist band(man) in the world, yes, I have been looking forward to this one. It seems that the venue tonight is a time machine, Love/Hate go way back in my history but the support is a little slice of KOK(sorry, I just could not resist that one). Knock Out Kaine were...

    Sari Schorr & The Engine Room @ Cottiers Theatre, Glasgow Cottiers Theatre had the privilege of being the first venue in Scotland to host the blues queen Sari Schorr and like a hurricane this force of nature blew us away. Before we got around to this amazing singer and her seriously talented band we had local lads Catfish Blues set the blues mood in style. They are a no frills, down to earth and serious blues band. Their set is full of all original songs and they go from lazy swaggering on the likes of “ Bright Lights, Big City”, a song that oozes soul to the likes of “Broken Down and Beat” which sounds like early Led Zep...
