Roaming-Son

Rockin’ and Roamin’ @ Honey Bees Blues Club

On September 25th a collection of rock and roll acts headed down to The Honey Bees Blues Club, here’s what Gertrude Perkins made of it all.

Rock ‘n’ Rollaz kicked off the evening with a solid set, despite missing their lead singer. They entertained the crowd with some classic foot tapping rock ‘n’ roll. In their suave black suits they stormed their way through hits such as ‘Sweet home Chicago’ and ‘That’s alright Momma’ as well as slowing it down with a delectably jazzy version of ‘Summertime’.

Next up were Vegas Six, exploding onto stage, with lead singer Craig Vegas commanding attention right from the start. He remained clothed for an impressive four songs before it all became too much and this enigmatic performer shed his shirt. To an appreciative crowd they ripped into classics and original tracks alike, slowing things down with a filthy version of ‘Spell on you’, before turning the tempo up, climbing the speakers and entertaining with their unique, mesmerising performance, double bass acrobatics and dizzying sax solos. If you haven’t seen this band – you must!

Topping off an awesome evening of dirty Rawk ‘n’ Roll, Roaming Son took to the stage. Reminding us why we love the ‘Son’, Tim’s growling enigmatic voice and Mark Lyall’s guitar mastery smashed through old and new tracks alike demonstrating how far these guys have evolved but still remaining true to their core sound. The band thoroughly enjoyed the set, banter flew back and forth making the crowd feel an integral part of the entire evening.

Andy ‘Dicko’ Dickinson swapped bass for lead guitar and went for a wander through the audience, much to their delight and the guys played not one but two encores, ending with a barnstorming ‘Trouble at the Mill’ .

To echo the enthusiasm of Andy ‘Its only rock n roll, but we like it!’
