Old Codger paid a welcome
return to the Buffalos Rock Club on 29th August and brought another
big crowd out to watch them. We've know the band for years, and
they know us, so it was a relaxed atmosphere from the off as the
band went through numbers from Thunder, Python Lee Jackson, The
Manics, The Cult, Bon Jovi, Ray Charles, AC/DC & Creedence Clearwater
Revival. With plenty of folk up dancing, and a good amount of audience
reaction the band had every right to go home feeling they'd done
a great job and live music had fed the hungry Herd once again.
Earlier on this year, The Force signed
up ex Slip of the Tongue vocalist Bill Hornsby as front man and
chanter and were an immediate hit with the Herd. The Force had been
playing the area for years and had always had a dedicated following
among punters and other bands alike, taking on Bill was a courageous
step that had many of us wondering how things would play out, but
the new line up brough new life to the band and an extra dimension
to their live performances. You're still going to hear some Rush
and UFO, but there'll be some Whitesnake, Deep Purple and The Who
in there too.
See them in action in at the Office earlier in the year here
playing a bit of Whitesnake.
