Thank you to those that came to last week's Earl Green
and the Right Time performance. Here's what MC John Cordingley
had to say about the evening:
"What a great evening with Earl Green and his backing
band the Right Time, I am very pleased that I did not miss what some considered
being the best club night that they had attended. Earl’s voice was exceptional
and his energy was unbelievable even at the end of the gig he was putting his
all into the last number encouraging the audience to sing along with him, he is
a true blues man and a gentleman to boot. The band really supported him in every
way with the two lead guitars playing in harmony, some nice slide by Les and the
sax playing was superb, and the five string bass and drums not in your face but
holding it altogether as they should. A brilliant band, and a wonderful evening,
only being slightly spoilt by a poor attendance, it is such a shame that many of
our regulars missed a such great evening. John"
I can only concur with John that this band are utter class,
probably the best of their type around at the moment and the standing ovation
said it all. It is a great shame that events such as local football
conspired to deprive this band of their rightful audience at our club. I
can only ask everyone to pull out the stops in these hard times, come and
support to keep alive this great heritage of quality live music at an affordable
This month sees the return, by popular request, of
the Guy Tortora Band. Guy is one of the more creative artists
in his genre of roots, blues and americana. Great songs, beautifully arranged
and presented, indeed Guy's performance was one of the highlights of last year.
I look forward to seeing you then at the Roffen
Suite, Rochester on Tuesday March 30th for the Guy Tortora
Band. Tickets £10, bookings to me at the return email address.
Doors open 7.30pm
All the best for now.
