The Rock Club convenes in Houghton Comrades Club,
the full address is: Houghton Comrades, Pear Tree Place Houghton
le Spring DH4 4AT. The clubs phone number is 0191 584 1123, the
Rock Club can be contacted via the usual email address here.
It was business as usual
down at the Comrades on 17th October as Bon Jovi Forever brought
their superb tribute show to the Rock Club. Always a great show,
another good crowd were not disappointed as the band ran through
an obviously well rehearsed set slipping seamlessly from one song
to the next with only the shortest of breaks to have a bit banter
with the assembled fans. Lots of dancers up, quite a few new faces
in the club, up to 3 lasses on the bar, I'd like to think everyone
went home happy. One of the best performances we get here, and one
you're not going to see at any other venue in the local area - if
you want to see the best Bon Jovi Tribute in the UK in the Houghton
area, you're going to have to watch the up and coming gig list at
the Buffalos. No-one else comes close.
Insanity always put on an excellent
show, but play here too rarely, doing tracks from the heavier side
with stuff from Ozzy, Sabbath, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Whitesnake
but with the odd curve ball thrown in from Bowie, Ocean Colour Scene,
Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, Duran Duran and Wild Cherry. here's
gotta be something in there you like! Their only gig here in 2014,
your only chance to see them locally in 2014 - don't miss it.
