"Song after song followed, none outstaying their welcome; each an exercise in concise, skilful song writing and arranging. Stand out songs for me were the Bo Diddley beat of ‘Rain Dance’, the swampy Blues of ‘Hey Baby’, the classic 70’s Rock swagger of aptly titled ‘Rock & Roll’ and the funky groove of ‘Go For It’ with its infectious chorus of “If you want it all, you’ve got to go for it”. I definitely wanted it all, and more. The last encore was another minor classic from this superb band’s back catalogue, ‘John Wayne’ which started slowly before going crazy on the huge middle section, and again to close the song. Great dynamics from a band that you should make sure you catch next time they come over, which hopefully will be very soon."
