Roadhouse Live at the Duck & Drake, Leeds – 24/8/2013
So to night two of our little Northern jaunt. Apparently crowds have been a little up and down at this really nice pub venue full of rock memrobilia. But we had a great night with lots of enthusiastic music lovers and a good number of Roadhouse fans, some of which had driven across from Preston for the show.
Set wise it was similar to the Harrogate show, ‘Blues Motel’ really kicked, Sarah sung ‘The Big Easy’ and ‘The Lying Game’ one after the other and got a great reception. We again revisited our version of ‘All Along The Watchtower’ which allowed Danny and I to branch out a bit while the ladies had a ‘rest’. Another great thing about playing this venue was that it allowed Mandie to perform to her family. It was lovely to see all of them looking so well, great folk!
There was a big shout for an encore and the positive vibe vibe/energy took us as far as Watford gap services. I reached home at 5.45am and Roger finally at 6.15.
Well done Roger for driving the Band bus.
Thanks also to Simon & Sharon for having us for the two shows and all of you for your great support
