Many thanks to everyone who comes along to our gigs, here are some comments taken from a couple gigs this year....2021

"It was a fantastic night with a great crowd of people"

"Brilliant as always"

"Good night, Great Band"

"we had a great night (the) band rocked the joint"

Below is the write up from Pete Clack of Blues in Britain from our ventures with Boogaloo Blues back in June 2017 and below that more recently from November 2019!! 

(Why not buy the magazine and find out more about your favourite Blues Bands, Venues and Events!!)

"That evening as Cry Baby and the Hoochie Coochie Boys took the stage hopes were high after (their) afternoon set, and this five-piece hit it right from the start with rhythm and blues at its very best, they delivered big time with a set of covers and originals.....The band have their own driving sound featuring Rob Wilkinson on vocals and harp, the guitar of Vince Cutcliffe, the keys of Mark Hargeaves, plus bass, Chris Bevington and drums Paddy O'Rourke. They were ready to get everyone dancing the night away, opening with (Don't point your finger at the) 'Guitar Man'....the dancers filled the floor again for such songs as 'Living it Down' and the The Thunderbirds 'Automatic'.....Jon Cleary's 'Take my Love' and a singalong 'Can I get a Witness'. How would anyone follow that?  

BLUES IN BRITAIN FEB 2020 edition; here is another great writeup by Pete Clack about our Boogaloo Blues shows on 30th November 2019! 

Commenting on our acoustic set "a hugely popular band for these weekends........their mix of blues and soul whetted the appetite for the evening"

Commenting on our evening set "the band's music is described as uptempo rhythm and blues and that sums them up perfectly.....They are a band  full of huge talent....and as a band are so tight....they served up enough to pack the dance are right through the set"
