Aynsley's Tuesday Blues 30/1/18


"The encore was predictably 'Purple Rain' - a unique Lister cover I never tire of hearing. Even the chatting stopped for this one! There is no question that Lister has the voice, the Blues/Rock guitar prowess and indeed the boat race. And on this evidence, given the accomplished deputation by Amadeo, he also has the support of a formidable band, who gel, enjoy the experience and don't just go through the motions. But five years after he was the only British artist to be featured in Classic Rock's 2007 'Top 10 Contemporary Blues Artists' - the question could be asked why is he still doing the clubs, pubs and supporting bigger bands up and down the country? From an entirely selfish point of view - who cares?" Can it really be nearly six years ago since we reviewed Aynsley Lister's gig at The Half Moon in Putney (pictured)? Well the man himself is back in London tonight headlining Tuesday Blues at the iconic 100 Club.
