Boogaloo Blues Weekend 17.6.17
A regular feature in the band's diary is a gig at Boogaloo Blues in Torquay. Boogalo run festival style events based in luxury accomodation.... and we love to play these fabulous gigs. The organiser, Monica Madgwick, puts on a great show, so check out her website here if you want to know more;
Lucky for us we got a write-up by Pete Clack in Blues in Britain, another great mover for Blues music in the UK, here is a little of what he said...why not buy the magazine to find out more!!
"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?
