If you love great songs and a super-tight, hard grooving Americana band, then you were either at your ideal show on Friday with the Peter Bruntnell Band – or you missed your ideal show!
We were prepared for Peter’s soulful voice and wonderfully incisive songs but, never having seen them, we didn’t realise what an incredible band he has around him. Mick Clews on drums and Peter Noone (er, no relation!) on bass make one of the finest rhythm sections you’re ever likely to hear, and stand-in on guitar for the show, Richard ‘Dicky’ Hayes played some stunning slide to compliment Peter’s own crunching, spiky guitar lines. Great bunch of guys too!
We were also thrilled to have yet another big crowd to make it a very special evening, so thanks to everyone who came along. Photos courtesy of Graham Smout.
