Gig: Rev Doc – Liverpool – this thursday

Posted on: Sunday, Sep 30, 2007

It’s all blues this week as The Harbourside feature Scottish talant Rev Doc and the Congregation for their second gig of the season.

The season started off in fine style with Hans Theessink last week. There were about 100 blues lovers, Hans sold 50 CDs and they raised £110 in the raffle for The Children’s Heart Association. Now if that isn’t success then nothing is.

John says that he know that it’s a short gap from the last gig to this one but he books the bands that he wants when they are touring.

Rev Doc is one of the genuine characters of the current British Blues scene. He is a charismatic frontman, who delivers raw vocals and harp, wrapped in a web of enigmatic humour. He is backed by a superb band that features the superlative guitar playing of Al Brown and the rock solid rhythm section of Davie B on drums and Alan Thompson on bass guitar.

The Glasgow-based outfit is hugely popular throughout the UK with a cult following of enthusiastic fans. Their Chicago-style blues programme is a delight, combining well-loved standards with cleverly-penned originals. Once seen, Rev Doc and The Congregation are an addictive force and never fail to satisfy the high expectation that they provoke. So, if you think you’re hard enough, come and get some – but prepare to be hooked.

Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.
Tickets for the concert (£10 each) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855 or by email to
