Review: Nick Dow – True Blues Club – 06 Mar 2010

Posted on: Tuesday, Mar 16, 2010

Here’s a brief report from club owner Graham Woodhouse…

Nick Dow Band plus Crossfire

True Blues Club, Earlestown

Saturday March 6th



Once again, our resident band Crossfire opened the evening’s entertainment with another completely new set of “Blues” material. The set included many new tracks, which they are about to record on a new album, and included Neil (my apologies for calling him Ken) showing his talents on the harmonica once again at the True Blues Club!

“Steve & I wish to congratulate the lads on being asked to play at the forthcoming Burnley Blues Festival”.

Up stepped the Nick Dow Band!

Nick Dow!

Nick Dow

Nick is as laid back on stage as he is on his radio show and opened by saying that due to a family crisis Jim, his regular bass player, was unavailable but, as he put it, he had stolen young Nick from his cot as a stand in! (Jim beware, this lad is good).

So, with barely two hours rehearsal Nick, with Craig on drums and young Nick on bass, proceeded to mesmerise the audience with two wonderful, make it up as you go along, sets!

Nick oozes “Blues”, his guitar and harmonica just seems to be a part of him. The love and emotion shown in numbers like “Sugar Coated Love” and “Sugar Free Mama” were a joy to behold but Nick literally held the audience spellbound with “Devils Music”.
