Ash's Comrades! 30/8/17
A well overdue one off our WRC bucket list was our very first visit to the Tuesday Night Music Club at the Comrades Club in Coulsdon last night to see Lincolnshire's very own Bluesman Ash Wilson (Vid Of The Day). We had seen the very impressive Ash supporting both Dan Patlansky and Sari Schorr earlier this year - so this was a no-brainer given that the the ex-Sean Webster Band guitarist on the night pulled together a band of musicians to die for. Step forward both Roger Inness (ex-Chaka Khan and Laurence Jones to name but a few) plus the keys of King King's Bob Fridzema who added that extra dimension to proceedings given that on the previous two occasions Ash's band were a three-piece. Indeed both Innes and Fridzema had appeared on Wilson's latest album 'Broken Machine' - of which understandably most of this set was drawn from - but just to add to the deliciousness of the evening - the quartet was completed by none other than King King's drummer and producer Wayne Proctor. Wow - what a gig!
