With an array of popular covers, all flavours of blues, Americana, pop, rock and roll and country, there was something for everyone’s taste.

James Gansler on guitars and mandolin and Maria Brothers on guitar were superb, while keyboard player Nick Cornell’s interplay with the lead guitar was spot on.

All musicians were of the highest calibre. They were so good they made it look easy.

The rhythm section of ‘Shug’ Millage on bass guitar and Mike Smith on drums were the backbone of this fantastic band.

The band covered hits from Chuck Berry, Bonny Raitt,

Lindisfarne, Ace, The Band, The Faces, and many more.

This was excellent entertainment from a band that creates great vibes from their catalogue of popular classics.
