With having splashed out on Who tickets for 30 March and 12 April, the timing is a bit crap for me, but I don't need much of an excuse to pass on TTB, but I do miss watching Derek make that guitar sing.... Much rather go see John Prine who is over here (London, Glasgow, Manchester) in April as well. With 2 overnights already booked for the Who, that ain't gonna happen!

More to do with abandoning Mrs R too often over a short period, Gordon - but thanks all the same.

Robin Trowers UK Tour continues throughout the month of October. If you wanna catch him live I suggest you snap up a ticket. We went along to Chester Live Rooms last night to see him and his band. Not been to the Live Rooms before and I was pleasantly surprised, and its only a half hour drive away. Its only a small place, holding about 300 with a small stage in one corner of the room with a decent bar at the back. Sound was really good although the vocals were slightly lost in the mix from the overhead P.A system. Support came from the Stevie Nimmo Trio who went down very well playing bog standard Blues Rock originals, with the encore stealing a snippet from the Allmans Jessica.

If TTB don't schedule a UK date soon, I might go to Amsterdam.

The show is on Friday 31 March at the Heineken Music Hall, which is in the same complex as the Amsterdam ArenA, where Ajax play Feyenoord on the Sunday.

Sandwich in a day downtown bar-crawling and culture-seeking at the van Gogh museum or Rijksmuseum and it would make for good weekend.

Heck, I might go to Amsterdam even if they do schedule a London date!

My spouse and i will be at the HMH show in Amsterdam. 7th row left of the center (were i guess Derek will be positioned ). Be aware that this is a seated show with reserved seating, so no general admission / no standing for the floor. While buying tickets there's an option to pick available seats which you prefer.

Also some additional advice if you consider buying tickets: the Heineken Music Hall (which has fantastic accoustics BTW!) will have a new name starting from 01-01-2017. New sponsorship deal. New name will be AFAS Live. Stupid name if you ask me and a big mistake that Heineken didn't extend that deal. So you might see tickets advertised with the new venue name but it's the same place!

I am being dragged along to the Live Rooms in Chester tonight by my wife to watch The South, formerly The Beautiful South. Recently seen Ian Hunter play a barnstorming set at theTivoli in Buckley, which is in North Wales. This coming Saturday at the Citadel in St. Helens we are going to see Mostly Autumn, a really good prog band with a great female vocalist.

I decided to splash out tickets for three shows in the recent London Jazz Festival. I used to listen to a lot more jazz and this seemed to like a good opportunity to hear some of the best players live.

I've also been very disappointed by some Blues-Rock shows I've been to recently. I left the Sonny Landreth, Devon Allman and Walter Trout sets ridiculously early, bored by what I was hearing. For me, the pleasure in live music is having to concentrate on how the players are interacting and the shifting tempos and moods and what I was hearing was formulaic and bland. And much too loud in Landreth's case.

On the other hand, I loved the freshness of the Marcus King Band at BluesFest.

First up was the Jan Garbarek Quartet, including the percussion virtuoso, Trilok Gurtu, at the Festival Hall. I saw the quartet's last London show in 2012 and had enjoyed it. A lot of people think that his playing is too precise and lacking in emotion but I loved the show. The only slight downside was the number (four, I counted) of percussion solos.

Next I took in a free, matinee concert by The Brandon Allen Quartet in the Cadogan Hall foyer. Very well attended (we retirees like a bargain!) and entertaining, it featured music by the 40s/50s saxophonist Gene Ammons, who I admit to not knowing, and the playing was superb to my ears.

Off then to see Ian Seigal at Under The Bridge that evening. No Dusty Ciggaar on guitar, which was my main reason for going.

Back to the Cadogan Hall at the weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, David Murray (saxes), Geri Allen (piano) and Terry Lyne Carrington (drums). I've heard Murray and Allen before in different settings and liked them well enough but this was my least favourite of the three shows. Great playing but Murray is the opposite of Garbarek in being much more "free-form" and improvised and, for me, hard going.

Support was by a young, mostly female London band called Nejira, who were very promising.

On Sunday, Carla Bley and the Liberation Music Orchestra. I love big band jazz and have a few LMO CDs. I last saw them at the Barbican in 2011, the year before founder and bassist Charlie Haden died.

The playing was superb and they didn't disappoint. It was great to hear a collective of fine US musicians adding their own solos to some familiar LMO scores.

What impressed me most was, firstly, the shows started at the advertised time, usually 7.30, and finished at a sensible time. As I get older, I look forward less and less to the vagaries of late night tubes which stop unscheduled at Northfields with no information about when the next Heathrow train will be!

Secondly, the music was heard in silence apart from appreciation for solos - no background chatting. Needless to say, everyone remained seated too!

Thirdly, photography was forbidden although I saw a few people taking a sly shot or two. But definitely no intrusive phones constantly filming the performances. I feel a bit conflicted about this because I enjoy watching videos of shows I wouldn't otherwise see. Maybe the answer is to have all filmers at the back of the venue so we don't have look at their phone screens!

I'm going to see Federal Charm, Aaron Keylock and Simo this week, hoping to have my Blues-Rock mojo revitalised. Fingers crossed!

Sounds like you had a great time Gordon. Enjoy SIMO. I picked up their disc on release and it has not been off the disc player, it is that good.

Be careful .... Simo came out first when I went to that show - I was lucky I wasn't a moment later ! Simo band were fab, i'd go again, although they only played about 45 mins. Then, Aaron Keylock .... I made it through about a song and a half - he's an 18 year old who prances around like Johnny Winter ...... I wasn't the only one who left after the first song. I couldn't bear it long enough to wait for the other band to see what they are like. I wouldn't cross the road to see Aaron Keylock again let alone pay money!

Saw William The Conqueror on Fri night - they were good
Hiss Golden Messenger last night - they were good too
Wilco a week or so ago - good
Bahamas - ace
Dale Watson - fab - I went to two shows

Don't be so modest, Dave - your band The Equatorial Group was playing too!

I would like to have gone but trekking to Brighton in mid-winter was too much of a challenge!

I used to watch Aaron Keylock when he was 12 at the weekly Blues jams in Tin Pan Alley. He certainly didn't prance around then but I can believe it from the stills I've seen recently.

He couldn't sing then and it doesn't sound like he can now.

That is one of my bugbears about the current Blues-Rock scene - vocals are usually taken by one of the instrumentalists who is barely adequate as a singer. What happened to all the specialist vocalists?

We were indeed - a nice spot to get for us
I'm sure we'll end up playing nearer you soon - these support gigs are usually pretty short with minimal gear - probably not worth traveling too far for - I'll let you know if there are any full 2 setters coming up .


Also, Charlie Parr was good
As was- Malcolm Holcolme
As was - JP Harris
As was Sturgill Simpson
Motorpsycho were amazing
Richmond Fontaine were good
Actually enjoyed Lake Street Dive
Red Fang were good
Damien Jurado was a bit dull but okay
Treetop Flyers were really good
Ryley Walker was pretty good
Wave Pictures are fun

I know I'll think of more !


Hasn't been a bad year for gigs so far

Thank God for Simo! I though they were great and I loved the psychedelic rock flavour to their music.

Federal Charm were so-so, amiable enough and with a couple of good songs but a bit too frantic and riff-tastic for my taste. They went down well though in what was a pretty full Academy Islington.

Aaron Keylock - dear me! I had to go back and look at some You Tube videos of him aged 15 at the Alley Cat to remember how promising a musician he was.

Right now, he's a hair-tossing showman and I don't know who has told him that is the route to take. His songs were insipid and his singing painful. The audience was lukewarm and that seemed to include a fair few friends and family.

The positives are that his slide tone is very decent and he is still only 18 so time is on his side. He seems to have record company support, a luxury which many young musicians don't have.

A lot of the Keylock fan club had left by the time Simo came on which was a shame as they missed an object lesson on how showmanship can be combined with musicianship to deliver a great show.

I'm not a great fan of power trios but these guys are excellent musicians and mix up dynamics and tones enough to keep things fresh and interesting.

I'd thoroughly recommend seeking out Simo when they next return to these shores.

Bill Kirchen (amazing guitarist from Commander Cody) is in the UK (only English dates, though) from March 18 until April 2 for 14 shows. Couple of London dates, well spread out locations, all look small gigs. Bristol 26th March :-).

"We've Got A Live One Here" was a 21st Birthday present for me and the DJ played it as my guests arrived.
