Long-lasting rockers still gigging.
Hilarious observational jazz/blues pianist. Brilliant. Still alive.
HUE AND CRY
Talented, soulful, and still going. Particularly good acoustically.
Obviously the 1976 twin guitar line-up was the classic. You had to be there.
Comedic Canadian funsters still on form.
Full throttle rock experience. Worth every penny.
Glam rock – long since gone.
JUSTIN CURRIE/DEL AMITRI
Bittersweet Scottish crooner – still in good voice
Rediscovered in 2010, after first seeing them support Rush in 1977.
Still going. Female rock - a down and dirty experience.
HALL & OATES
A bit soft soap, but with good soulful moments.
Clapham/Brentford pub band I followed insanely in the 80s.
Highly variable. They can rock out one gig and noodle incessantly the next.
Guaranteed good time and masters of big venues.
From Wilko to the current line-up, classic pub rock.
EDDIE AND THE HOT RODS
Still going and good as ever – you can’t not have fun at their gigs. Barry Masters still held together by chewing gum and ale.
It Bites man keeps morphing into something else.
The Squeeze man is humorous and highly talented. It’s like he’s playing in your kitchen.
A bit of a corporate gig these days, but he’s a hell of a talent, especially when jamming with others.
NINE BELOW ZERO
Good time London blues band, now celebrating their 30th anniversary.
Little-known and now defunct rock band we followed in the late seventies.
Reinvigorated American rockers.
