Redfern, with new drummer Alex Bridge and bassist Stuart McDonald hit the stage and tore straight in to 2 straight-ahead Blues rockers, the hot and heavy It Stacks and The Other Side. Early chances for Troy to dazzle with his trademark scintillating slide work. As the set built Redfern eased the band into the slow grinding Blues of Salvation and Karma Blues, both cuts shot through with stretched distorted solos and serious string bending. The set climaxed on super covers that saw the band go down and dirty on the filthy riffs and licks of John the Revelator and Mad Man Blues before Troy hit the heights on a white hot and taut rendition of Voodoo Chile, the pedals pressed to the floor extorting distortion and reverb, a crescendo of sounds, topped off with coursing solo, hands tracing the frets with fury. Troy Redfern’s second visit to the Boom Boom and another success, these guys are welcome anytime!
