Review: The Full Fat Boogie Band – BJ’s at the Hop Pocket, Chorley – 20 Oct 2011

Posted on: Friday, Oct 28, 2011

BJ’S BLUES CLUB at The  HOP POCKET,
20th October, 2011
THE  FULL FAT BOOGIE BAND

This five piece band from the Blackpool area delighted the packed crowd at this number one venue in Chorley.

The history of the band covers more than twenty years, but reformed,  and newly named they have risen to the top like quality
cream, and richly deserved, no semi-skimmed performance here.

Andy Houghton on bass guitar and  lead vocals, delved into past decades and produced  popular numbers, we all like to hear.
“Hootchi Cootchi Man”, “Money,”  “Shake,”   ” I saw Her Standing There”,  “Dr Feelgood”, and many many more.

Dean Kelly and Steve Gregg, they shared the lead guitar role,  plenty to feed the taste buds here.  Simon Knowles on harmonica and supporting vocal , what a find,  his enthusiasm could be felt at the back of the room.
On the drums,  the one and only Peter Crouch,  no, not the tall footballer, but a professional player all the same, a Gold Top rating here.

This band likes to put on a show and they did just that on returning to  BJ’s Chorley.
