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.

Next Show:

Friday 5th September
The Force
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.
