Pam, if you've not seen BJ grin before, you're in for a surprise! I went with my wife to a BJ gig a couple years ago, and they absolutely rocked. I was amazed. The energy put forth by Jon and band is rarely seen by any entertainer nowadays, and the quality of their sound system will knock your socks off. Everything is crisp and the band is tight.

Electric Strawbs in Glasgow tonight - around the 10th time I have seen the band (both acoustic and electric). Look forward to standing back from Dave Cousins when he goes into overdrive hehe. Down to the reeeever, down to the seeeeeee. Dave Lambert is such an under-rated vocalist and guitarist and never realised just how good he is until I saw them many years ago.

Strawbs gig was excellent and a nice audience who for the most part where well behaved. A couple near me got a little too drunk and had to be told to "shut it" which they duly did grin

Set list was really all you could want from a band with a 40 year track list. I stayed sober (was the driver) so here is what we heard:

Kicked off with Lay Down and then in no certain order:

New World
You and I
Grace Darling (best ever version I have heard with gorgeous synth/sampled choirs)
Autumn
The River/Down by the sea
Hero and Heroine
Here today, gone tomorrow
Out in the Cold/Round and Round
Burning for You
Broken Hearted Bride (from new album out in Sep)
The Call to Action (from new album too and this is classic Strawbs and a real return to form - awesome)
Heartbreaker

Encore: We'll meet again sometime

The band were superb but Dave's vocals got lost in the mix at times particularly in the rockier numbers. Dave Lambert was superb on lead and John Hawkins did a sterlining job on keys. Bass and drums were as good as ever from Cronk and Coombes. We even were treated to a drum solo.

For those who are yet to see the band, enjoy it and hearing the old stuff is wonderful after a long number of years. I would have liked to have heard 'Ghosts' but they did play that on the last tour so Grace Darling made up for it and my night. Simply a gorgeous song.

Nik is very under-rated much like A-Ha were as most thought they were only good for the pop songs and yet on all of their albums they demonstrated a power beyond mere pop. Memorial Beach is just a sublime album and the most adventurous of their back catalogue. Btw, I have all the A-Ha albums so they can't be bad, can they?

Yeah! I'd love to see the one of the best vocalists in rock! I really like his album "Music For The Divine."

When he joined Deep Purple in 1973, along with David Coverdale, he helped them to make some of Deep Purple's best music ever. "Stormbringer" is fantastic! Enjoy the gig!

The band was amazing. It's like being transported back to the 1970s. For the first half of the show, they played almost 1-1/2 hours, took a break, then came back and played another 1+ hours. It was pure heaven cool

More photos from my RETURN TO FOREVER experience! The show started with a tribute to Joe Zawinul and Miles Davis. The crowd was treated to some "Birdland," etc, before RTF hit the stage. It was very nice smiley

Stanley Clarke performed an extended acoustic bass solo that had everyone wondering if he was for real. Absolutely jaw-dropping.

Crowded House on the 10th July at Thetford Forest.

Although Fraser and Gooner were working on me at The Phantoms gig to come down for the Spock's Beard London gig. Also a young prog fan in my local pub was trying to persuade me to go.

If only Neal would come back cry

Spock's Beard without Neal is like The Flower Kings without Roine (in my opinion).

Indeed! It is no less than Mike Portnoy, one of the world's best drummers.

As a matter of fact, Liquid Tension Expriment is Dream Theater minus the singer and bass player.

Tony Levin - Bass/Chapman Stick (Peter Gabriel/King Crimson, etc)
John Petrucci - Guitar (Dream Theater)
Mike Portnoy - Drums (Dream Theater/Transatlantic/Yellow Matter Custard/Neal Morse)
Jordan Rudess - Keyboards (Dream Theater/Rudess-Morgenstein/Dixie Dregs)

Sylvan concert in Oslo cancelled - well in fact the whole prog festival has been cancelled due to the promoters going bankrupt. Totally p*ssed off with this as flights booked etc. Seems they over estimated last year and lost around £40k and scaled down this year to only 2 days instead of 3 and at much smaller venue. However, not sure what has happened but to all intents and purposes the whole thing is now cancelled and I will not see the band play Posthumous Silence live now. embarassed cry

Now onwards and upwards and will hopefully see Gazpacho and Pineapple Thief in Oslo on 23 Jan 09.

Next up for me is Musical Box next month followed by maybe Francis Dunnery later in the month.

I have the gig on DVD so I can enjoy that. Thankfully my friend did not buy the tickets otherwise I would have been further out of pocket. Roll on January and a visit to Oslo then. Btw, did the postie come today with something nice for you? wink

Joey Molland, who joined Badfinger in 1969, is touring with a group of musicians under the name Badfinger. Here's Joey's MySpace site http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=27737341

Joey played guitar as a guest artist on George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" and "The Concert For Bangladesh," as well as John Lennon's "Imagine" album.

Joey's the guy on the far left (I always thought he looked like Paul McCartney's brother)

I see Australian Pink Floyd is coming to within 50 miles of me in November. But why do they have to be playing on a Wednesday night? angry They're going to play the entire "The Wall" gig just as Floyd performed it, plus various Floyd tunes after the set. Wish I could go. I did get to see The Wall performed by Floyd, and it was fantastic!

News Release -
Chas Cole for CMP Entertainment in association with CAA presents, for the first time in over 25 Years, Pink Floyd`s legendary rock opera THE WALL live in concert and in its entirety performed by The Australian Pink Floyd Show.. This is the World Premiere of an amazing new stage production including animation, lasers & inflatables PLUS a very special `greatest hits` encore.
.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd's seminal 1979 classic rock opera, THE WALL , the live phenomenon that is, The Australian Pink Floyd Show, will tour North American venues this fall, with their jaw-dropping World Premiere of Pink Floyd`s legendary, rock opera, The Wall .. This will be a brand-new performance of the complete album in its majestic entirety.. Every amazing musical piece will be played note-for-note!
.
The work has not been performed live on this scale for over 25 years, not since Pink Floyd toured it themselves. But now it is back, in all its glory, performed by the band that the London Daily Mail says, "do Floyd better than Floyd do themselves."
..
The meticulous attention to detail of the musicianship - every facet of Floyd's The Wall will be reproduced note for note, sound for sound by the fastidiously talented musicians - is what ultimately has kept the fans coming back for more.. Floyd's frontman, David Gilmour, has given the show his own glowing endorsement ("They really are very, very good indeed").. Plus, every night the show will conclude with a special Pink Floyd `Greatest Hits` encore.

A short note or two on the Musical Box gig last night.

Firstly it was great to meet up with Demo Man again and to finally meet Nikki, John and Alibrat. Would have liked a bit more time to chat with them before and after the gig but the band came on around 8pm.

Set list was as follows:

Dance on a Volcano
Squonk
Robbery, Assault and Battery
Entangled
Los Endos
Lamb Lies down on Broadway
Fly on the Windscreen/Broadway Melody of 74
Carpet Crawlers
It/Watcher of the Skies (abridged)
Suppers Ready
Cinema Show
I Know what I like
Firth of Fifth
White Mountain

Instrumentally this band were amazing and just confirmed just how bad things got (IMHO) after Duke and the band's journey towards pop rock. Highlights were Los Endos, Cinema Show, White Mountain and Squonk. Suppers Ready was wonderful instrumentally but the lead vocalist or the guys on the mixing board missed the big intro to one or two parts.

Now onto the vocalist. Personally, I never heard the previous singer who did the PG material. The new guy is a wonderful drummer but on many of the songs I did not hear any resemblance to Phil - while on others he did appear to sound like him. I love Carpet Crawlers but it did not work for me vocally and neither did Robbery, Assault........ Cinema Show was slightly better vocally and the whole song was saved by the superb musicianship.

The talking between the songs saw a bit of nervousness with the guys. The lead singer lost the place a few times but I put that down to nerves and they will get better as they play more venues.

In summary, wonderful musicianship with the keyboard player on fire, bass work was also excellent and the Hackett tones were there although not as good as Steve (how could it). For me, the vocals were the weak point. The guy does have a decent voice but if you are going to be a tribute band then surely you have to sound like the person and particularly when it costs a fair bit for a ticket too. A touch picky perhaps but I know that in general each of us had some criticism to make.

Again, great to meet up with forumees which very nice indeed. Let' s meet earlier next time and have a bit more chat.

Tonight - feel adventurous, will attend the first ever live gig of (Steven Wilson's ) Bass Communion and Fear Falls Burning for soem hours of vintage drones - should be interesting in any case

Quite brilliant after the initial 1/2 hour or so when the sound was not that great but they seemed to sort it out. They played a long set in front of about 150.
The support act (Demians) have some potential so i bought the CD. It is very good, but much better than the live version wink

suprised Anthema would only draw 150! Over her ein the Netherlands they had like 4 gigs and all of them over 500 peeps attendance

Steven Wilson will mix and produce the upcoming album and says the material is the best they ever did - looking forward to that

Demains album is a great one - live reviews are indeed not so positive - esp as they have to recreate the album as a three piece with a new drummer!

Eric, I thought the drummer in Demians looked very nervous and i think they just need more rehearsals.

Anathema are a great band IMO, they played "hindsight" from their new album. Tremendous stuff, i'll be getting the album for sure.

yesterday Sigur Ros at the sold out Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall, For A Minor Reflection Opening (Icelandic too, 4 boys all 19 yrs old who hitherto had only played in pubs for 15-20 people and were now up against 5.500 - they did a good show, very much in the Explosions In The Sky-vein)

They played and excellent set with superb sound! Beautiful light effects too. This tour is the first in some time without the Amiina strings but they are not missed. A wonderful gig, even if the SR audience seemed a bit subdued.

setlist of this memorable evening was a great mix of old favourtites and new material

Hey Mal! I saw Hells Bells at the Roadhouse last Saturday. I've seen them twice before too. They're excellent! The bass player only looks about 15 and the lead guitarist isn't that much older but he can't half play! If you like AC/DC you'll like these guys. They're on stage for quite a while too. They do rock covers first, some of which sound a bit odd as the lead singer sings them all in a Brian Johnson voice! Well worth seeing though!

My understanding is that they are play around 3 large outdoor gigs - the one I have tickets for is the Glasgow Hampden Park gig (national football stadium). I also think they are playing London and one other place - Birmingham perhaps. I am sure Squigley Fox will let me know as I am too lazy to check the net.

Slightly annoyed as if he was coming to visit me then I would have made the effort to go along to accompany my friend even if I was not a big fan of the bands and also take in the Marillion gig too. I am not going to stand in the venue on my own and cannot get time off to go to Oslo on 14th to see Marillion. As Ned Flanders would say darndiddlydarn

Not having much of that bud as first the Sylvan gig was cancelled due to the promoters going bankrupt and now this - ah well, there is more in life to worry about but it would have been nice to see 3 super bands on the same bill. Maybe next year when Airbag release their debut full length album.

Yes, you can call me Squigely if you like. That's fine! smiley Glad you enjoyed the gig so much illegal alien. smiley They had mini stages at the sides of the stage which they moved onto sometimes. But they did a couple of acoustic songs ( 'The Scientist' and 'Death will never conquer' ) on a platform on the left side of the arena, right near the audience. I wasn't up there but got a good view of the band from the right side. We didn't get 'Green Eyes' at Sheffield though. Lovely song that, underrated I think.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band (supporting 3 chord Status Quo last night)

Well the gig the guys put on last night was top drawer.
I have seen the band play loads of times and i have to say that the audio quality was by far the best i have heard in many a year. No surprise because i have seen some great bands play great shows at the Glasgow SECC (Peter Gabriel, Rush, Yes, War Of The Worlds, Neil Diamond) and they have all been excellent. So last night for me was a great opportunity for the band to show off their musicianship to a wider audience (around 8000 maybe?) and they simply nailed the performance, which started off with Stout; OMG what a great opener that turned out to be.

So well done to the band.
Being many metres back from the front row, I for once realised that I couldn't see Manfred at all as he was hiding behind his keyboards. Maybe he should rearrange his keyboards to be more visible?
Noel's voice was utterly fantastic and Mick and Steve's guitars were awesome as usual. Did you hear me shout Mick?!

A word of praise for Jimmy. It was the first time i have seen him and I was extremely impressed. What a powerhouse drummer! And he nailed the whole set. Maybe Manfred could make room for a drum solo in future?

I hope the band make some new fans from these gigs and come back again to Scotland in the near future. I'm sure the audience numbers could make the band some decent money and i'm sure there would be some Quo fans attending! And there are us Scottish fans who i've no doubt would help out with some local promoting........just a thought

All-in-all I would say the band were rewarded well for their efforts last night. I saw lots of clapping, smiling faces and praise especially for Noel's voice and Mick's guitar playing. My friend who was there primarily to see the Quo, remarked that "wow, these guys really know how to play"
Nuff said!

Each to their own i suppose grin

I have to admit that the band did play a lot of old songs going right back to the late 60's. But all in the same chord rolleyes

Demo Man - check this out mate

Progrock Festival 2009
16 - 17 February 2009
Katowice, Wyspiañski Theatre
Day I: SBB (PL), Shadowland (UK), Tinyfish (UK) - start: 17:30
Day II: RPWL(DE), Overhead (FI), DeeExpus (UK) - start: 17:30
The bands to appear at the festival are:

SBB: A legend of Polish music scene. The band returns with a new studio album entitled “Iron Curtain” on 26th January 2009. SBB, comprised of the phenomenal composer Józef Skrzek, the excellent guitarist Apostolis Anthimos and the flawless drummer Gabor Nemeth, plans to support the release with a tour with its final show at the Wyspiañski Theatre!

SHADOWLAND: A recently re-united band that brought their fans the albums “Ring of Roses”, “Through the Looking Glass” and “Mad as a Hatter” are going out on tour again for the first time in over twelve years! The current line-up: Clive Nolan (Pendragon, Caamora, Arena, Neo) – Vocals and Piano, Karl Groom (Threshold, Strangers on a Train) – Guitar, Mike Varty (Script for a Jester’s Tour, Credo) – Keyboards and BVs, Mark Westwood (Caamora, Neo) – Bass and Acoustic Guitar, Nick Harradence (NW10) – Drums. To celebrate their return, Shadowland will be releasing a ‘best of’ album (called ‘A Matter of Perspective’) featuring their favourite tracks from the three previously released (but now unavailable) albums, and also boasting some brand new material. This CD will be available from February 2009.

TINYFISH: Tinyfish are a London five piece band with a deep and abiding interest in all forms of progressive music. The group formed in late 2004 as an acoustic outfit playing the open mic spots of the capital. However, as the band's material grew in complexity, this became unworkable and they took the decision to venture on as a full progressive rock band. Tinyfish exists largely because of the friendship that thrives between the members and the personal chemistry which naturally results from knowing someone both socially and musically for over twenty years. The band’s self-titled debut album from 2006 received enthusiastic reviews from worldwide media and brought them many devoted fans…

RPWL: This German progressive rock band was formed in 1997 as a Pink Floyd cover band. After three years they started to write their own music based on their influences from their ‘cover band’ era. Their debut album from 2000 entitled "God Has Failed" received an international praise and excellent reviews in all major progressive rock music magazines. In February 2008 the band released their fifth studio album "The RPWL Experience". It’s an album that ventures into new musical and lyrical dimensions, while sounding very consistent. “We simply made into music what we ourselves enjoy. We didn’t want to hold back or apply the RPWL filter, but let our ideas run riot with musical lightness.”

OVERHEAD: This Finish band plays melodic progressive rock that varies from gentle ambient atmospheres via more traditional rock to heavier moments. Their highly anticipated third studio album "And We're Not Here After All" was released in September 2008 by Musea records. The album is a very personal and introspective trip into the most basic of human instincts: the will to live. Needless to say, it has its share of ecstatic highs and desperate lows, all neatly wrapped up in a single album full of atmospheric rock.

DEEEXPUS: Up until very recently DeeExpus had been the long time solo project of songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist Andy Ditchfield. A chance reunion with singer and old friend Tony Wright in March 2007 expanded the project into two people for the first time and writing and recording of the album “Half Way Home” began. The DeeExpus sound can only be described as being as eclectic as their influences, drawn from years of listening to the likes of Joe Jackson, Iron Maiden, It Bites, Crash Test Dummies, Rush, Nik Kershaw and Marillion, more recently Porcupine Tree and Spock’s Beard. Having recently released “Half Way Home”, Tony and Andy are working hard with the rest of the band to take DeeExpus on the road… The current band line up is: Tony Wright – Lead Vocals, Andy Ditchfield – Guitar, Keyboards & Vocals, Ian Raine – Bass Guitar & Vocals, Steve Wright – Guitar & Vocals, Kev Jager – Drums & Vocals

Well, it wasn´t to expensive seeing them in Madrid, I think we paid around 40 € or so, don´t remember exactly now, for standing tickets. But now we are going to Paris, as they sold out in Barcelona in just a few hours, and each ticket is 84 € ( not standing but seated though ). Same stadium where we saw Genesis btw ! . smiley

You're welcome.
I know what you mean about wanting to see him. I've enjoyed his music since someone played Past, Present and Future to me back in 1975. Since then I've done as we all do - bought all the albums, then bought them again when new versions come out. I've got loads of bootlegs which I listen to regularly BUT I've never seen him live.
He was at the Swan at Wycombe 4 or 5 years ago but I couldn't find anybody who wanted to go so I didn't bother. Well, I couldn't find anybody who wanted to go to The Oxford New Theatre but sod them - it's their loss.

Regards

A great gig by John Lees' Barclay James Harvest at the cosy Lowry Theatre in Manchester last night.

The set list was as follows:

For No One
The Great 1974 Mining Disaster
Poor Wages
Iron Maiden
Child of The Universe
Loving is Easy (X-Rated)
Light at the End of the World
Poor Man's Moody Blues
Galadriel
Harbour
Suicide?
Medicine Man
In Search of England
H'ors d'oeuvres
Mocking Bird
The Poet
After the Day

She Said
Hymn

The band were on top form and i must say that Woolly's interaction with the audience between songs was excellent! Ned described him as eccentric and i couldn't agree more! laugh
The highlights for me were For No One, Medicine Man, Suicide? and After The Day. Both Woolly and John signed CD's after the gig. The guitar work from John was fabulous and he has a sound all of his own. Pity he didn't say much during the concert but i guess that is just the way he is? undecided

Thanks for the great company of friends including the Music man himself Nedflanders, James T and our friend Michael smiley
The drive down gave a great opportunity for some banter and listening to some great music grin (including the awesome Tick Tock wink

Hear hear.

A wonderful night and a superb concert. To add to Demo Man's comments, John was superb on the guitar but he does need to learn to stop dressing like a tailor's dummy and just put on a shirt and jeans. Wooly is not only a really funny man but he is so integral to the band sound. His talent is amazing and his mellotron and other sounds are what BJH is all about. Funnily enough, it was his material which came over as the best stuff although everything was wonderful.

It is no coincidence that the material from the band is from the best period 69-78. My favourite songs on the night, and my own personal favourites were:

She Said
Iron Maiden
Suicide

and best for me

The Poet/After the Day

This brought the hairs on the neck and arms to full attention. My all time fav song of the band.

Wonderful time with the other lads, great to see my old mate Colin again and also to have James T's company.

As for Tick Tock ?(rubbish) and much preferred the sub-standard produced new Icon III CD grin No, my first 2 listens to the album told me that this is a contender for 2009's album of the year.

Orchestra Confirmed for Shrewsbury Festival
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -

It is now confirmed that John Lees' Barclay James
Harvest will be performing the second half of
their set at Shrewsbury with the National
Symphony Orchestra. This is a must-see concert,
as it may be the only chance to see the band
perform some rarely-heard material with an
orchestra, and the line-up for the festival is immense!

The JLBJH performance will not be filmed, so the
only way to see this unique performance is to be there.

Confirmed to play on the same bill as JLBJH on
the Sunday are Melanie, the electric Strawbs and
Jethro Tull. JLBJH will be on last, and will be
the only band performing with the orchestra.

The Friday line-up includes The Carl Palmer Band,
Wetton-Downes iCon, Jefferson Starship, Steve Howe and Alvin Lee.

Saturday's bill boasts Mostly Autumn, Focus,
Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash, It's A Beautiful
Day, Jack Bruce, Robin Trower and Gary Husband
and the original line-up of Asia headlining.

The whole event will be held in an enormous 'Big
Top', and tickets cost £85.00 for a full three
day pass, or £32.00 for a one day ticket, plus
£3.95 p&p per transaction. Camping is also
available at the site for £5.00 per day, with
toilets and washrooms open 24/7, and even early breakfasts!

Bookings can be made through
http://www.new- dawn-events. co.uk/ or tickets can
be paid for by cheque - for more information contact:

Asia - last night in Buxton!

What a gig! Anyone in any doubt if these guys are worth seeing - go now while you still have the chance! They were totally fabulous , 4 guys right at the top of their game (not as pretty as they used to be maybe!) but they blew everyone away in this lovely old opera house , Carl Palmer proved any doubters wrong about who is the best Drummer in the world , yes , he is better than Peart! There you are , i've said it - believe it and go and see them , Open Your Eyes , Sole Survivor , Heat goes on , etc etc , plus some "Surprises" !

11 out of 10! smiley

Met them afterwards , all very friendly , ( photo with carl , of course!) Steve doesn't do photos by the way!

Pendragon gig last night was awesome. Support band were Abel Ganz who despite not having a keyboard player and drummer did a 40 minute acoustic set and they were fabulous with a huge Genesis feel when 2 6 string and a 12 string all played together.

Pendragon came on to a full house and played almost 3 hours. We got the entire new album plus:

Master of Illusion
Back in the Spotlight
The Wishing Well
The Last man on earth
The Voyager
2am
Walls of Babylon
Nostradamus (Stargazing)
Breaking the Spell

Nick and the band were on fire and Scott Higham must be one of the most talented drummer I have ever seen. He was amazing and hardly broke sweat but he was enjoying himself so much.

Where are you seeing Ray Wilson - London? I have checked his site and most of the gigs are in Germany and other European countries? Wonder why he is not playing more UK dates? Perhaps the main reason would be that people in other European countries appreciate him more than the UK do. Wonderful talent.

Re: Your next gig/gigs

The best part about a Fleetwood Mac gig is the chemistry between Lindsay and Stevie. Lindsay's guitar picking technique is also very captivating....no, amazing!

Mick is also fun to watch. His facial expressions are entertaining, to say the least. John McVie has a horrible onstage presence, the guy doesn't move at all.

Yep, Lindsay, Stevie and Mick make a FM gig worthwhile, even if you have to pay a week's wages to get a seat rolleyes

Whoever's going, have fun! smiley I've never been let down by the band in concert.

I did go to a Stevie Nicks solo gig once......no, twice.....

The first one was at the US Festival in 1983 when her career was on fire. Waddy Wachtel was on guitar, another great onstage presence. And Lee Sklar on bass. Great gig.

The second time I saw Stevie was about 20 years later, and she and the band were pretty bad. It was a small venue, Stevie had broken her leg and was in a thigh-high cast. She could barely move........but, the SHOW MUST GO ON, right? I would have rather had my ticket refunded for that gig.

Yes is an acoustic set, I just learnt it will take place next November 13th in a theater in Madrid.

The problem is getting home after the concert is complicated ( to where I currently live I mean ), I don´t want to drive back home and taking a taxi may cost a small forturne.... I think it is easier and cheaper if I go and see them to.....Krakow for example !. cheesy cheesy

Here's a sampling of my Rewiring Genesis/Spock's Beard pics from the gig Saturday night! What a great show Nick and friends put on for everyone! smiley cool

They were filming a DVD of the show so we couldn't get out of our seats to take pictures, and they didn't want us to raise our cameras to take pictures either, so most of these shots were taken by me at gut level and are all taken without a flash. Only a couple of us were allowed into the 450-seat venue with our cameras. Papa Jim will be posting these and other photos on the CalProg site www.calprog.com pretty soon.

Hi Dave,

Yes, quite a few of us forumites will be there. I saw them play at Lydney last year, with @ 40 other people sad They do superb renditions of early Genesis songs but I also really enjoyed their own material, which was interspersed between the G songs. I've been preaching, begging all the people I know to give them a try wink They deserve a much wider audience.

Thanks too for posting the fantastic Rewiring Genesis gig photos. I bought the CD and would love to have seen this gig. Sounds like a great evening.

You're in for a treat! I've seen the Mac a few times over their career. I wonder who's going to sing Christine McVie's songs? I heard that Sheryl Crow was slated to replace Christine, but Stevie Nicks denied it. The band just can't get away from Rumours can they? grin This tour is supposed to be a GREATEST HITS tour, so it should be fantastic.

I saw her at The Cambridge Theatre many years ago. The Divine Comedy were supporting.

She's quite a performer and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

To me, she's the American Kate Bush (if you know what I mean).


My current list looks like this:

The Blues Band

Cara Dillon

Show of Hands

Paul Carrack

ReGenesis

Seth Lakeman

Plus my own gigs with The Phantoms and 10 o'Clock Curfew

Plus we're off to the Greenbelt Festival this weekend where there are loads of people playing such as Athlete and Royksopp.

I am naturally quite disappointed because in my opinion he was the best singer the band ever had (and i include my all time favourite musician, the fabulous Mick Rogers and of course Chris Thompson). He was loved by all of the fans, for that there is no doubt. See the following links, the second one started by Mick Rogers.

However 18 years with one band is a long time in anyones book and he wants to explore new possibilities, presumably in the soul arena and i know he sings in a jazz band. Also keep an eye out on the upcoming X Factor shows where he is a competitor (long story!).

I always think it is a pity that MMEB don't produce enough albums and vary the setlist enough (they have a huge back catalogue). 18 years for Noel reads 1 studio album (part contribution) and 1 live album (part contribution) !!

I am very impressed with the fortitude of the band for continuing and it seems they have already found a new singer who will no doubt sing the songs with new style and interpretation, so i am confident for the future. Manfred Mann always has the knack of finding tremendous musicians and at nearly 70 he amazes me with his staying power, still doing around 50 odd gigs a year!

Gavin Condor stood in for Noel at the two Norwegian gigs in July which I was lucky enough to see. Good singer but his voice just wasn't strong enough to carry the likes of Martha's Madman and The Mighty Quinn. Noel will be missed for sure but we move on with enthusiasm and I will see the new singer unveiled at The Brook in Southampton on October 19th.

Re: Your next gig/gigs
Post by CountingOutTime on Sep 11th, 2009, 7:49pm

I just received an e-mail from Jim Harrel at CalProg. I guess times are tough and they aren't selling out this year. There are still some $80 seats left.

I can't believe bands with such prestigious members as Jonas Reingold and Roine Stolt can't sell out a 400 seat venue. In Europe they could sell out 2 nights in a row!

I know it's a long shot, but if anyone visiting this site is interested in going, there are still some great seats left. Not a bad seat in the house.

The gig is all day and evening, 4 bands, Saturday, October 10th, 2009.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the Touchstone set Alan! I'm very much looking forward to hearing all the bands, but least of all It Bites. I hope I'm wrong and that I'm pleasantly surprised by their set.

What's not to like with It Bites? Certainly kick Touchstone into touch..if you'll excuse my metaphor!
John Mitchell on guitar and vocals. The last album was quite simply stunning.
I believe they are playing the whole of Once Around the World.

I saw many of the prog bands at the CRS over the last three years and It Bites were probably the classiest.

I'd better give OATW a few more spins. I recently purchased all of It Bite's albums, and The Tall Ships was the only one that floored me. The concert's this weekend so I'd better get on it.

Sometimes when you're not familiar with an artist's material and then you go see them in concert, you're blown away by their greatness. I'm hoping this is so with It Bites.

Is that your first time seeing Martin Turner? I absolutely love his completely unauthorised version of Wishbone Ash. Powel may have carried the flag but Turner helps me to see what 70s Wishbone were really like. Enjoy and do tell me what you think.

Looking forward to seeing Roine and his bandmates. Hoping to get some photos. The nice thing about CalProg is that the band members mingle in between sets with their fans.

Just back from PT at Leeds.

The place was packed! and the atmosphere the best I've heard. Very loud appreciation after every song. (I'd estimate the attendace at 1200 )

Fantastic set list. I would name some of the tracks but don't want to spoil it for the Hammy people. All in all I don't think the set list could have been bettered for me.

The Incident was basically totally awesome.

You will love it if you get to see this show.

BTW Did Nikki make it to this gig. I'm sure I saw her hair double at the front.

Well I've been to Leed and London now and the bands both nights were awesome , they are a truly talented bunch of guys .
I have to say I prefer the Leeds gig so far as I'm not a fan of seated venues and had a good spot right in the centre downstairs.
Highlight apart from the Incident was hearing Russia On Ice for the first time live , an awesome piece of music.
Was great to see Nikki and Oz again as well as my partner in crime Fraser grin grin

Just got back from CalProg cool

Saw Roine, Jonas, Nad and Lalle in the lobby of our hotel Friday afternoon! grin

Kitty and I had breakfast with Nad, Lalle and Roine at our hotel this morning! shocked Jonas must have been tired from his awesome performance last night.

Lalle was very gracious and said it felt wonderful to be in America. I thanked each of them for their contributions to progressive rock and wished them luck with all their future projects.

Last night, Roine mentioned to me that Transatlantic is considering touring next year for "Whirlwind." I suppose you could call it their whirlwind tour cheesy

Got lots of pictures to go through. I'll post them here as soon as I can.

Touchstone were awesome. I spoke with their bass player, Moo, this morning after breakfast. Great bunch of people. Kim Seviour, their vocalist, performed brilliantly.

It Bites were as I thought they would be...........great instrumentally, but not my cup of tea. There were a bunch of fan boys in the audience that made me want to puke. Every song they were up jumping around, singing every word, clapping loudly during the songs. I hated their set. Bad way to end the evening. John Mitchell and John Beck were amazing instrumentally, but I just couldn't get into their songs. They started to play "Supper's Ready" as their tribute piece and then stopped early on, John Mitchell saying "Oh screw it, we'll play one of our own." Everyone in the audience was offended big time.

Agents Of Mercy and Karmakanic were so good that I could have died after their performance and I would have died a happy man. Everyone, including Nick D'Virgilio on drums, were spot on. Amazing talent all on one stage. My wife, Kitty, even caught one of Nick's drumsticks when he threw them into the audience after the AOM set.

Goran Edman and Nad Sylvan traded off vocals and complemented each other wonderfully. Lalle Larsson on keyboards was about the best I've ever seen in concert, and I've seen plenty over my 30+ years of seeing live gigs. Jonas and Roine..........what can I say, other than they were everything I had imagined them to be. They played a lot of AOM stuff and a lot of the new Karmakanic album "Who's The Boss In The Factory." The best of the Karmakanic set would have to be "Two Blocks From The Edge" and "Where The Earth Meets The Sky." Their tribute tune (a CalProg tradition) was Genesis' "Afterglow." It gave everyone goosebumps.

All in all, a wonderful day! smiley (missed you Nov) wink

Post by NedFlanders on Oct 12th, 2009, 08:08am

Pallas gig was pretty good but Alan Reid's vocals were drowned out at times by the guitar (which was excellent). He does not have a strong voice and he struggled at times midway through the set when his voice cracked a little. Overall he did OK but he needed his mike turned up at times - the fault of the guys on the soundboard. They kicked off with Cross and the Crucible and then For the Greater Glory. We got Blood and Roses, one song from Dreams of Men (Ghost Dancer) and a few older numbers which I don't care too much about. They also played 3 songs from the new album for the very first time but they are all at demo stage but sounded really good although the last number was pretty heavy for Pallas - thankfully it was not too long. Add in some technical issues with the keyboard (needed a completed software reboot) and it was a fun night. They even brought on their old singer, Euan Lawson, for two numbers - Arrive Alive and one other but he was drunk and to be honest they should get rid of this guy as he cannot sing and was stumbling around the stage. The band played for around 2 hours and I enjoyed the gig. Keys and guitar work were superb and Graeme on Bass was outstanding - what a sound from his Rickenbacker with all the add ons. If they had tweaked Alan's voice a bit more then the whole sound would have been even better. Alan did a lot of jumping around and is a good front man, Graeme's jokes and all round chatting was good and Nial's guitar work reminded me of The Enid one moment and Hackett the next.

Support band Abel Ganz were good and they are very much like Pallas in sound. They did not have the same sound balance that Pallas had and that made some of their music sound a little out of synch at times but overall they performend well and I also have all their albums so know what the songs should sound like. Again amazing guitar work but keyboards were lost in the mix at times. I do like the new album Shooting Albatross. They played 3 songs only but in true prog fashion they were long - the first was over 25 minutes.

Next up is BJH on 24th of this month. Good to see James T and Demo Man again.

Sorry Ned, I won't be going to BJH at either Glasgow or Perth as it clashes with my two MMEB gigs in Norway.
James T will be at Glasgow though.

Touchstone were awesome. I spoke with their bass player, Moo, this morning after breakfast. Great bunch of people. Kim Seviour, their vocalist, performed brilliantly.



Glad you enjoyed them Dave, did they go down well with the audience?
I chatted with Moo as well after the gig here, really nice guy, as were the rest of the band, apart from Kim of course, who was delighful smiley
I really hope Touchstone get the success they deserve

I echo your sentiments regarding Touchstone's future success, Alan. They were given a hero's welcome Saturday. It's funny, because I don't think they were expecting such a rousing reception. I saw Kim having breakfast at our hotel with her video man (he was shooting during their performance up in the media box at the front of the stage), but I didn't interrupt her meal to say hello. I think most attendees at the gig were enthralled not only with her performance, but also with her presence; quite stunning in her red hair and emerald dress. Moo is a fantastic bassist, reminded me of Flea with Red Hot Chili Peppers. He was all over the stage, full of energy, and man he could play up a storm as well. Great band. I wish them all the best.

Dave,

I've sent you a pm about this but just to repeat here - I think you should start a new thread with your Calprog review (and pictures) or add it all to the TFK thread.

Things can easily get missed in threads such as this one because there is such a quick turn-over of info and your hard work could be missed by a lot of people who would enjoy it.

wink

Cheers

STEVE ROACH, DJAM KARET AND LOREN NERELL

These three artists are going to be playing a 7+-hour FREE concert not too far from my home this Saturday (about 20 minutes away)

I'm familiar with some of Djam Karet's music and have heard the entire "Recollection Harvest" album. They play fantastic instrumental rock with an ambient flare.

Has anyone heard of Steve Roach or Loren Nerell? You can listen to complete tracks at this site http://www.immersionfestival.com/

One of the sponsors is my favorite haunt for progressive rock purchases, Rhino Records. It should prove to be a very interesting evening. The soundscapes that these artists create are very innovative and original.

BJH gig was superb. Colin Bass and Jan Schelhass were the support band and they played a nice set including Drafted from the Camel 'Nude' album and also 'As far as I can see' from Colin's superb debut solo album. It was nice to see Jan again after 31 years (I last saw him on the Breathless tour in Germany 1978)

We got the very best of BJH but they did not do 'Suicide' which was strange when they played 1 or 2 less popular and not so good songs 'Cheap the bullet' which I dislike and cannot understand why they chose a sub-standard BJH song but at least it was really the only track I could live without. They also and one song I cannot recall ever hearing (must check out the really older albums) which was about 3 minutes too long. They main set list played:

Galadrial
She Said
The Poet/After the Day
Poor Man's Moody Blues
For No-one
Poor Wages
Harbour
The Iron Maiden
Cheap the Bullet
Nova Lepidotera
Mockingbird
Hymn
Child of the Universe

They only did one short encore (Hymn) but I think they were told to finish before 10pm which was a shame and they had to cut the whole thing short. So, we got 1 hour 30 minutes which is OK.

Woolly was his usual wonderful insane self, amazing on the keys and his mellotrons rang out superbly. John was a bit more animated than usual and even smiled a few times but what a guitarist he is. Vocally he was better than the Manchester gig earlier this year but in all honestly the whole sound was more vibrant than in April. Bass by Guy Fletcher was spot on and he did lead vocals on Cheap the Bullet (I wonder why that was as he also sang lead on Loving in Easy on a previous tour? Maybe John is finding it tough these days).

Highlights for me were the Woolly songs with The Poet/After the Day, Mockingbird and She Said making the hairs on my neck rise. I do like the classic John songs but perhaps he should do a couple of his other songs like Memory of the Martyrs, John Lennon's guitar or Love is like a violin.
Good to see James T and some old friends at the gig

Audience were very appreciative but I found I was really annoyed at the lack of respect from a section of the booze filled crowd who were talking and laughing during Galadriel and a lot of the other songs. Something that James T and my friends agreed was becoming a major problem at gigs today with so much booze being consumed. I was being pushed every 10 seconds by people going to the bar or toilet and then coming back. Spoiled the evening a bit. Strange thing is that at the Manchester gig it was all seated and you could hear a pin drop plus there was no alcohol consumed in the venue. No doubt where the problem lies. Why people pay a lot of money for a ticket and then treat the venue like a pub is beyond me. I give my full respect to musicians and wonder why others simply cannot refrain from making an arse of themselves by their troglodyte behaviour through excessive alcohol and complete ignorance for the musicians and those who paid money to watch a performance. I feel like giving up now and may begin to select gigs based on seated venues.

More artists should do that. I am not a fan of the Gallagher brothers but I recall reading that they told fans to "shut the f*ck up and stop being so f*cking ignorant or they would walk off stage"

Well done and perhaps we should have ushers to herd those sloathes out of the venue much like they would do if you were laughing and talking and getting pissed during the third act of the opera or ballet.

I think getting a little old makes me less tolerant than I once was but I feel that the trend of treating a concert hall like a pub is becoming more widespread and guess I am getting to that point where I simply cannot be bothered anymore. The cinema experience is becoming just as bad also. I would be curious for anyone to say they can enjoy a gig with so much distractions around you.

I just heard that Ian Anderson is performing at a venue that's about 50 miles from my home tomorrow night! Why the heck does it have to be a Thursday night? He's an amazing flautist and quite the minstrel. I'll bet he puts on quite a show.

I find that sometimes the lead artist behind a well-known group is quite often the person responsible for the original band's sound. This was brought to my attention when I went to see Justin Hayward, vocalist/guitarist/songwriter for The Moody Blues. After seeing his 3-hour solo show about 10 years ago, I was quite disappointed with seeing the Moodies at a gig a year or so later. With a solo show it's more intimate, and you usually hear a few more stories that give you insight into the songs themselves.

I have a few bootlegs of the US tour and he sounds identical to Jon Anderson imho. The show sounds amazing. A large number will hate the gigs because he isn't Jon but they should stay at home.

Under the circumstances it is Yes music played with a great amount of respect.

Enjoy it.

Absolutely stunning show Ned, and fantastic set list,which I won't give away here, just to say that expect tracks from his first album up to his new album, interspersed with some wonderful Genesis gems cool
Nick Begg's dress sense is a bit suspect cheesy, but man,can he play shocked His work on the Chapman stick is nothing short of incredible!!
Amanda Lehmann I was a bit nonplussed about to be honest, nice to look at certainly, but not sure of her overall contribution to the band, still, make your own mind up.
Overall a wonderful evening, worth the hours drive to Exeter in disgusting conditions, and would love to be able to see Steve again.

Kind of gave up on the band since they ripped me off 5 years ago. Bottom line is that I paid £35 for a double DVD which was a) faulty and b) was only available to buy on the official site/ The faulty DVD was never sorted as the band refused to answer any of my e-mails and then I found the double DVD available at several outlets including Play.com for £17.99. I have seen this band around 8 times in the past but will not see them again for the shabby way I was treated. Please enjoy the gig.

Sorry to hear that Ned, I agree that's not a very nice way to treat a customer, let alone a music fan. The Band must be musically good though or you wouldn't have seen them 8 times before, or tried to buy their DVD. I'll go to enjoy their music but will give 'em a good glare on your behalf. angry

Cheers Steve grin Btw, they are very good live but I am not a fan of Heather Findlay as her voice is just not strong enough and in the early days she was drowned out by the band. That has as much to do with the guys on the soundboard clearly not having a clue what they were doing to get the sound balance right. Bryan's voice is better for my ears but he kind of took a backseat from Last Bright Light onward and Heather took more lead. Something just grates with me on some songs when she sings.

I love the first 3 MA albums and from that point they never quite captured the wonderful style and songs thereafter. Still, I am sure you will enjoy the show.

Cheers Ned cool

Ok, I am off to the Porkies gig in Glasgow. Looking forward to hearing the new album live. Shame that Eric and Demo Man could not make it but I have my son with me who is a huge fan (and a huge boy at almost 6 foot 6 inches. As long as he does not stand in front of me then I will buy him an ice cream on the way home and read him a bedtime story. grin

Post by NedFlanders on Dec 12th, 2009, 08:04am

Got to the gig last night having spent over an hour trying to find a parking slot near the venue and eventually had to park 2 miles away from the venue. No problem I thought as it was only 8.15pm and the band were not due on until around 8.45. How wrong could I be. What happened to the feckin support band? The Engineers were supposed to play but for some reason there was no support and we entered hearing 'Your unpleasant Family' booming out realising that we had missed the first 6 tracks on the Incident. Pissed off would be an understatement. The doors did not open until 7pm so if the support had played then the Porkies would not have been able to come on until around 8.30 at the earliest so it was a solo evening and they came on early. Steve W did mention before the encore that they had to be off stage by 10pm as the place becomes a disco. I am sure he did not know this when a support was planned and perhaps in light of this had to cancel the Engineers.

Having calmed down slightly and found a better vantage point (away from the f**king bar where the usual drunk idiots were chatting freely) my son and I managed to enjoy the remaining tracks from the new album and then the band took a 10 minute break. Part 2 of the show included:

Start of Something Beautiful
Russia on Ice (part 1) and Anesthetize (second part)
Mother and Child Divided
Normal
Futile
Stars Die
Trains
Sound of Musik

Notwithstanding the huge disappointment of missing the start of a gig (something I have never done in my life), trying to find a parking space and wishing you had a photon topedo device on your car to remove all other cars from the road, I heard enough quality music to enjoy the evening. The highlight was hearing Stars Die (my all time fav song of the band) live for the very first time. I saw the guys in 1995 but they did not sing this song as SW said last night the main reason is probably that he thought it too difficult to sing it at the time.

bummer to hear you missed the start David.

these times were advertised yesterday noon

show times for tonight: Doors: 6.30pm North Atlantic Oscillation 7.00pm PT 7.50pm

There was a replacement for Engineers who had to cnacel but they atsrted 5 mins after door openned. There was a 10 pm curfew at the venue that the band wasnt previously aware off to make sure some club night at 11 pm was starting in time - which caused hasty start when many people still made it into venue!

Reports suggests that atmosphere was great, The Incident sudned great but sounds deteriarated somehwat during second set

Wish i could have been there! Half the band joined the travelling posse from the PT forum in a pub down the street later

Yes, bummer indeed but how is one supposed to know of changes to start times etc as we generally go with ticket information. Last night was my final standing gig and I at least went out with a good gig. I do not have the patience or tolerance now having to compete with complete idiots who would rather chat and be total assh*les during the gigs along with trying to become a giraffe to see over a sea of people who are all 1 foot taller than you. Add in the spilled beer on you and people shoving you while they go to and from the bar kind of makes the whole experience not worth it anymore. Add in increased ticket prices and its becoming an unpleasant experience in most cases. Maybe I am just getting too old for this now.

As for the sound. It was not on par with some of the previous gigs and Richard's keys were too low at times while Colin's bass was sometimes too powerful. Hard to judge from where I was standing - on the right hand side of the hall so you never get a true balance unless you are somewhere in the middle. Still, it was still much better than some other more weighty artists have produced at some concerts I have attended in the past.

Hope to talk soon.

If I didn't know any better I would think you were trying to entice me over to the Netherlands young man. Normally, that would be no problem but saving pennies for my wedding in August and a few things have to take second place.

Ahh yes, the old late-to-the-gig routine. Back in the 1980s (man I feel old), a group of us were going to see Floyd perform DSOM in its entirety at Dodger Stadium in L.A.

Once we arrived within a mile of the stadium, traffic completely came to a halt on the freeway. We didn't move for what seemed like forever (probably almost an hour). The gig had already started. It was being broadcast live over the radio. We saw people leaving their cars on the freeway and heading to the stadium. We followed suit. The band had already started playing.

By the time we arrived at the stadium, it was almost intermission, and before we could get to our seats, we were subjected to a standstill massive line of people who were yet to be frisked by security. This too was my only time ever being late to a gig.

We had missed the entire DSOM set. The band came back and played for another 90 minutes or so, but what a pisser night it turned out to be. I can surely feel for you, Ned. Glad you and your son enjoyed the rest of the PT set.

I was late for a Rush concert at Wembley Arena once undecided

We stayed for an extra pint in the pub up the road but the concert started earlier for some reason and we missed three excellent tracks sad

Regarding people talking at the bar during gigs made me realise that despite the fact that there were two bars open at the ReGenesis gig at Shepherds Bush the other week, and a big crowd, everyone was really quiet and attentive during all the quiet bits. Nice.

I guess everyone was really enthralled.

Actually, I was offered front row aisle seats, but I prefer being in the center of the venue, especially when it only seats 450 people.

Roine and Neal are usually on the left and Pete and Mike are usually on the right side of the stage, so I'd rather be in the center and just bask in all their glory grin

For the first time ever I had to request ear plugs from the venue (the very good "Arches" in Glasgow) for the Dr. Feelgood gig last night.

Not a bad gig supported by two half decent local bands but, my God, the noise was beyond safe levels (despite being of a good quality) and very uncomfortable. angry

I have some seated gigs planned. Not keen on standing gigs for more or less the same reasons as you Ned. Although some people at seated gigs choose to stand! Still, it is good to have a seat there if I need to sit down. Getting old aren't I? Young at heart though! cheesy

I'm contemplating going to see the Groundhogs at the Robin tonight as a couple of friends have asked me to go. Not sure if I will yet as I'm totally knackered after seeing the Watch last night and staying up chatting to Fi and Pete 'til the early hours. My telly broke on Friday so I'll probably be bored if I stay in but then again, if I have to buy a new one I need to be a bit more selective when it comes to gigs. I'll decide later!

Great gig last year and a superb audience. Just a pity that most of the others were spoiled by inconsiderate a-holes who are happy to spend a lot of money to get drunk and talk throughout the gig.

I just found out that my wife and I have won 2 passes to go to the meet-and-greet after the Transatlantic gig in April. My name was put in a raffle.

Of the 600 people going to the gig, 197 wanted to go the meet-and-greet. Only 50 individuals will be allowed in, and we're 2 of them. Yahoo!

We'll get to meet Neal, Mike, Pete, Daniel and Roine!

I'll probably get tongue-tied, but hey, how many chances do you get to meet this caliber of musician? We'll be having free pizza and soda too.

We got to meet Neal at his solo show a couple years ago. Great guy, very nice. The boy is Neal's son, Will.

Missed them when they played the Classic Rock Society a few years a go.
Really like what i've heard. Book of Kells is great but i am drawn back to Beyond these Shores which has many many fine songs and bass playing from Nick Beggs.

They were very good musically but the lead singer was such a misfit! Would've made a good Shakin' Stevens tribute! His look and demeanour was totally wrong for Supertramp! Really spoilt it for me...and Steve Hammond, for that matter! We couldn't watch him!

Re: Your next gig/gigs
Post by NedFlanders on May 31st, 2010, 04:06am

Pendragon gig was excellent despite Nick suffering from the flu and only his voice at times gave the game away plus lashings of sweat.

Great set list:

Comatose
Indigo
Freakshow
Eraserhead
It's only me
2am
Paintbox
Not of this World
If I was the Wind
Master of Illusions
Nostradamus (Stargazing)
Breaking the Spell

Crowd were well behaved mostly during their set although one a**hole kept shouting how he loved Clive and told Nick to get off stage (drunk skunk). Nick was blown away with the reception after beginning the show with Indigo and the crowd were on top form - around 350-400 there.

Abel Ganz played support for around 45 minutes and liked the familiar stuff but not too keen on when they allowed guest artists to do some folk tunes which was a little boring. Crowd were a disgrace laughing and talking througout the set and kind of summed up my reasons for virtually stopping gig going. No respect for the artist and unfortunately as long as people continue getting as much booze down them as possible this will continue. I was standing near a table of dizzy females who did not even know who the bands were but simply wanted to consume as much booze as possible while shrieking with laughter all night - I would have sold my soul to the devil for a handful of tazers just to shut them up.

All in all Pendragon were on form and the band were simply fabulous with Nick showcasing just how good he is as a guitarist - certainly in my top 5 of all time. The man is just awesome.

Didn't see you there. What did you think?

I thought they played quite well and played a nice range of songs from all the albums. I was surprised they didn't feature a few more from Together though. Neko was in fine form as usual, but I was impressed by Kathryn Calder. She seemed to have gained a lot of confidence since the last time I saw the band live. Kurt Dahle on drums was also great - almost a bit Keith Moon-esque with his drum stick twirling.

I feel silly saying this, but I think I did see you...but I wasn't sure if it was you. Were you standing near the front, left side of the stage?

I thought the show was great. Sound was good, vocals nicely balanced. I was very disappointed that they didn't play "My Rights", but made up for it with "Go Places". Yes, I thought Kathryn sounded quite good. She should be featured more often. But what the hell is up with that Dan Bejar guy? huh

Of course, Neko was amazing. I get the impression that I will be the recipient of a court restraining order in the near future...

Yes I was at the front left (Neko) side. No worries if you weren't sure.

Dan Bejar is not exactly a scintillating stage presence. I originally didn't like his songs much on the earlier albums and felt he was an unnecessary addition to the mix. But his songs for Together are pretty good, so I am tolerating his presence more.

I'd think it would be great to hear Kathryn do lead vocals on a song at some point. It's tough to be a female vocalist in a band that already has Neko.

This is something I look forward to every year. We've been going to this Classic Jazz Festival for around 10 years now.
This is not contemporary jazz. The music is early 20th century/late 19th century jazz; ie, stride piano, Dixieland, big-band and more.
You Brits may have heard of Neville Dickie. He's a stride pianist from England who's been playing for decades.
Really looking forward to this! cool

MiRthkon
District 97
RPWL
Ambrosia

This gig is going to be lots of fun! Anyone over 50 has heard Ambrosia's hits on the radio. They started out as a prog band in the early 70s, then went over to pop music. For this gig, they'll be reaching into their prog roots, plus I'm sure we'll hear some of their pop hits as well; ie, Biggest Part Of Me, How Much I Feel, Holding On To Yesterday, Nice, Nice, Very Nice, etc. cool

Rogers Waters doing THE WALL on September 18th, was very lucky to get kick ass seats! (I hope I didn't miss something).

Hopefully something before that will have to wing it.

Paul McCartney is playing round the corner in a couple of weeks, may crash that if I can find a good price ticket last minute.

Thankfully not as I am now far too old for all that nonsense like being tied to a lampost, drinking excessively etc etc. I know traditionally the Stag night should be the night before the big day but it now seems that is a thing of the past and people have it at all times and in all places. Whatever Saturday brings, it will be a good night and enjoyed by all. Thanks for best wishes Squigs.

Not really a club actually. It was at the Dakota Tavern, a basement country bar on Ossington.

It was an excellent show. Just her with a couple of backup singers and a slide guitar player for the odd song. She played new songs from an upcoming album, old stuff, and a couple of covers. I'm a big fan, and seeing her in such a small place was amazing.
