Playing their first gig of the year for us, Bon Jovi Forever filled the club on 28th February bringing in bothregulars and their own dedicated followers. Sporting a new guitarist since we last heard them, we wus much impressed by his performance, with big shoes to fill he fitted in perfectly and you'd never know he hadn't been playing with them for years. Bon Jovi tracks from across the years had the Herd up dancing performed by one of the best, and most entertaining bands on the circuit, the epitomy of the Buffalos mantra of "lights, smoke & Rock'n'Roll" BJF were in early and set up, and played until the witching hour approached. One of the very few gigs they play in the immediate area, if you want to see them again locally you'll have to keep an eye out for their 2nd gig later on this year. Top show.

Next Show:

Friday 6th March
Another fresh band for us, Overdrive play tracks from The Kinks, The Who, Deep Purple, T.Rex, Bad Company, Nicleback, Greenday and the Stranglers. There's bound to be something in there you like, so far this year we've had a succession of new bands on the stage and they've all played blinders, so expect great things from these guys - in Rock we trust.
