Roadhouse Live at the Wrotham Arms Broadstairs – 29/10/11

Our first time back at this nice venue since we played here in February as part of the annual Broadstairs Blues bash. This was a welcome invitation to return, especially as we have been asked to play in the festival again in 2012 and will be appearing back here on the 17th February 2012.

A massive thanks to Geoff for all his hard work in arranging our return. He also ensured that the band were well fed and watered at this friendly venue.

This was another early gig for our new singer Ria Hallwood who once more proved what a big voice she has. She received a big vote of approval from the local Roadhouse fans. There may not have been as many people there as during the festival where people were struggling to get to either the bar or toilets due to the press of bodies, but there was still a good turn out.

All had a good time and  especially good versions of ‘Voodoo Queen’ and ‘Dark Angel’ were possibly the highlights of the night.

New releases of note included ‘Dark Angel’ (Cross Border Records) by Roadhouse. This occupies the ground between Americana, Southern Rock and the Blues, and is an unusually dark and spooky album that shows just why the Band has a strong following among UK Blues-Rock lovers. (
