First time for us, Jump the Gun made the trip North from Smoggy land to entertain the Herd on 15th August. Bringing a good reputation with them, the band demonstrated how they'd achieved this reputation by playing a cracking show covering tracks from Ozzy, MSG, UFO, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Golden Earring, Thunder and AC/DC among many others. Good hard Rock, plenty of banter, broken strings, we got the lot; great to see a bunch of musicians who obviously enjoy what they do and having a decent turn out of punters who want to hear live music. I can see these guys being on the gig list again when we start booking next year's bands, well worth turning out for if they're ever near you.

Next Show:

Friday 22nd August
The Road Runners
Another new band for us, The Road Runners are a 4 piece band playing classic rock and power blues, from bands like ZZ Top, Stones, Queen, Bad Company, Free, Deep Purple, Dire Straits, Thin Lizzy & Quo to Bowie, Clash, Sex Pistols, Trex, Who & Tom Robinson not forgetting Motorhead, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, et al according to their web site - sounds just up our street! See them in action at the Cluny playing classic ZZ Top here.
