Gig Review – The Hope Tavern, Blues/Rock Club – Holton Le Moor – March 2011

Our 7th appearance at Graham’s excellent Blues Rock Club, set on a level crossing in the middle¬† of¬† ‘Nowhere’.

I’m pleased to say that our recent big stage appearance at the massive Skegness Blues & Rock festival pulled in a lot of new faces. This was the biggest gig attendance at The Hope for several months.

With Mandie singing in tandem with Sam Richards, both sets really rocked. The great thing about the warmth and intimacy of the Hope, is that you can hear the fans singing along with you (they also tell you when you get your own words wrong!). It also means that when a member of the audience goes to the gents, they have to sqeeze past the corner of the stage (So you can sing “We know what your doing”)

Two great encores, a great drum solo from Roger and Danny on good form. CD and DVD sales were strong too.

We’ve never failed to play a really good gig at the Hope, long may the tradition continue

Gary
