Dan Reed Network Wins Best Rock 5/1/20


"So a bit of a different kind of reunion caps off a great night with ‘Tiger in Dress’, ‘Under My Skin’, ‘Forgot to Make Her Mine’ - to mention just a few. Melvin Brannon never ceases to amaze with the sounds he manages to produce from his bass as he funks it up! Brion James with his distinctive braids crunches out the riffs, with Dan Pred on drums keeping the beat going. Rob Daiker on keyboards insists afterwards that he really is a guitarist, but we think he does a pretty good job tickling the ivories too. Reed as ever, bounces around the stage with boundless energy and ends the night and keeps it non-binary with his girl/boy quip on ‘Come Back Baby’!" That was part of our take on Dan Reed Network's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire gig last month (Video Of The Day), and Dan and his boys have consequently carried off our 'Best Rock Performance' award in our 2019 WRC Awards.
