Review: The Armadillos – BJ’s Rock-In-The-Blues at The Hop Pocket, Chorley

The packed crowd were treated to a rock & roll show with blues and a hint of swing/country from this trio of musicians who have been together for a few years now and entertained the crowd who had their dancing shoes on, and danced their stuff to some hot rock & roll.

Front man Greg Walker on lead guitar/slide guitar and lead vocal ripped through an extensive repertoire from the rock & roll years; on bass guitar was Andy Levey, a solid performance from him; and the other half of the rhythm section was Ian Gibbon on drums and vocals.

Greg’s slide guitar work on “Dust My Broom”, and “Madison Blues” and his medley of “Folsom Prison”, “Shake Rattle and Roll”, and “Train” really hit the spot. They finished with The Beatles classic number” When I Saw Her Standing There” – a night to remember with some good time classics to enjoy.
