    "Rock and Roll doesn't get any better than that, these days", I say to my Good Buddy (Boro Bri) as we meander our way out, to the accompanyment of Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World".  "They're a 'Ronseal' band...they do exactly what it sez on the tin", is my sartorial compadre's response.  The tin must have "Contents are brilliant - joy guaranteed" written on it.

    This was the last night of the UK leg of our Maestro's current tour, and consequently He & The Band were in an especially spirited frame of mind, sipping the occasional glass of bubbly between duties. Mind, the evening had already got off to a decent start.  Katie Spencer opened up - singer songwriter already sporting great guitar technique and tone, despite her relative inexperience.  Short set, but enough to have me & Bri queuing up at the concession stall for her debut cd, then hunting her down like two ageing stalkers for a signature.

    Local lad Steve Daggett up next, with his own brand of musical reminisences & observations. Both acts found favour with the audience, which is always nice to see. Often, it seems, audiences just aren't interested in support acts these days.  Give them a chance - you might pick up on something! So, come the time, the combination of a tee'd up audience, buoyed with anticipation, and a band in a somewhat celebratory mood was borderline explosive...or as near as we get these days in the Stella Artois Home for the Permanently Bewildered. Takes yer back, though ...

    Ian & the Band know how to entertain.  Wonderfully paced set, great tunes played with oodles of taste by musicians with real character.  They've been around the block.  Many times.  They know what works. It's a testament to the Maestro that he's still writing songs that have a real impact, consequently the newer stuff's still welcome alongside...well, some of the soundtrack of our youth.  

    With such a canon to draw from there'll always be tunes you'd wish were played but weren't.  That said, the smiles on the faces suggested everyone went home more than happy.  Such a great show...hard to single out highlights.  I suppose "The Moon Upstairs" was something I hadn't expected to hear played again, and a tune I'm very fond of.
