On what always promised
to be a night to remember, Bon Jovi Forever played their 2nd gig
this year here at the Comrades in front of a full house. With Danny
added on drums and Steve on bass since their last visit, the band
have grown in confidence and the show was a masterclass of what
a performance ought to be. Usually I'm sat here on a Saturday trying
to remember what was played the night before, but with BJF it's
easy - Bon Jovi all night! The classics: Livin' on a Prayer, Keep
the Faith, Bed of Roses, You Give Love a Bad Name, In These Arms,
Bad Medicine, Runaway & Wanted given the full on treatment with
Magic Marty on lights giving the whole event a dynamism that shows
what can be done. A special mention to Alistair who turned up just
to watch the show, paid his money on the door, and ended up mixing
the sound for the band; no peace for the wicked. An outstanding
performance from BJF enhancing their growing reputation as the best
BJ tribute in the UK.
I'm really looking forward to the
Gatecrashers, everyone I know who's seen them raves about them;
singer Nick has played for us before with Against the Grain
a couple of times so we have some idea what to expect. Loads of
stuff up on YouTube, here's
just a sample from the Office but expect to hear anything from Sabbath
to Michael Jackson and Led Zeppelin to Ray Charles. Billing themselves
as the ultimate party band, put your dancing shoes on and come out
for a good time as these lads will provide it in Spades.
