Review: Robin Hoare Band – True Blues, Earlestown – 13 Feb 2010
Posted on: Saturday, Feb 27, 2010
Here’s a report from club owner Graham Woodhouse….
Robin Hoare Band plus Crossfire
True Blues, Earlestown, Newton le Willows
13 Feb 2010
Despite minor technical problems (one amp & two speakers going bang during sound check) our Sound & Light maestro Paul got the show on the road at 8.15pm. The man is a genius!
Crossfire, who never cease to amaze Steve & me, opened the evening’s entertainment with another new set of “Blues”; which included Ken showing his talents on the harmonica for the first time at the True Blues Club!
The band members are…. Steve (lead vocals/bass), Dave (guitar), Brian (guitar/vocals), Ken (keyboards/harmonica/?) and Jon (Drums)….. five extremely talented guys who fit together like a jigsaw!
Up stepped the Robin Hoare Band with two fantastic sets of spell binding material!
With his own self penned tracks regarding contemporary topics, taken from their latest CD, and the bands ability to put their stamp on covers of various Albert King, B B King etc etc numbers, it is no wonder that King Rollo has christened Robin as “Sheffield’s favourite Bluesman”!
