A great night at the Boom Boom Club, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support - Heres Nigel Fosters review...
Steve Eggs and band took to the stage and proceeded to put on a show of passion, pace and great fun. Very catchy sound to the band, tight rhythm section of Mark Taylor behind the drums, Peter Wass on bass, fantastic rhythm guitar from Steve and some serious lacerating fret work from lead guitarist John Kershaw. Blues, Country, AOR, Rock and a splash of New Wave peppered the set, generating a great atmosphere that the band used as energy givers. Steve is a great singer songwriter and his lyrical prowess was to the fore with cuts that included Here Comes The Rain and Falling Into You. Kershaw fizzed and put his Strat and pedal board through their paces, generating a myriad of sounds. Just like the opening act these four guys displayed great chemistry and a range of contemporary sounds that put me in mind of Dire Straits, high quality and real music. The pace was non stop and the set flew by and was brought to a rousing close with a searing version of The Clash's I Fought The Law. To complete the evening and add extra interest, eminent music journalist and rock biographer Chris Welch was on hand to talk about his life on the inside of the British rock scene during its most fertile period. One look at the Coffee table books on display showed the man is connected, from Bowie to The Who and from Cream and Clapton to Led Zeppelin. A great night and a chance to show our respect for the great work done by all connected to the McMillan Foundation.
