Review: Early Mac Band – BJs Rock In The Blues at The Minstrel, Chorley: Thursday, 22nd May

Posted on: Wednesday, May 28, 2014


This four piece band based in the Leeds area gave an impressive show featuring the works of Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac – the early years.

The band formed over ten years ago by front man Luke Smithson on lead vocal and guitar, who delighted the packed crowd here in Chorley with some timeless vintage classics. Joel Dowson on lead guitar was tremendous, and the rhythm section of Ol Jessop on bass guitar and Peter Tallent on the drums completed the line-up of this talented band.

Early Mac, played a selection of British and American blues from the likes of Elmore James, Gary Moore, BB King and Jimi  Hendrix – just brilliant music to groove and dance to. If you’re in to the blues scene, then you will not be disappointed seeing this band live, they were fantastic.
