Review for ‘DILLINGER’ @ The White Horse, Adlington – Saturday 22nd November

A great local pub ‘The White Horse’ in Adlington, hosting a great local band ‘Dillinger’.

‘Dillinger’ are a well put together four piece blues/rock covers band from Chorley. Fronting the band was Duncan Yates on lead vocals and guitar, with Tim Leyland on guitar, vocals and harmonica, Pete Liddle on drums and deppin’ on bass Nathan Kilburn.

Kicking off the evening, a great take of the Peter Green’s classic, ‘Oh Well’, then moving into a bit of popular Thin Lizzy with ‘Rosalie’. A great mix of covers to follow with Clapton’s – ‘Cocaine’, to Tom Petty’s – ‘I Won’t Back Down’. They finished the first set with the classic Fleetwood Mac number ‘Chain’, excellent!

The second set brought us another interesting mix with Stealers Wheels – ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’, a dash of Deep Purple’s – ‘Black Night’, a couple of Thin Lizzy numbers, with even a touch of the Rod Stewart’s – ‘Stay With Me’. A guest, Phil Baker was invited up to sing on the Doors classic ‘Roadhouse Blues’, – and did a great job!

It wouldn’t be the same without a bit of Hendrix, – so a well put together ‘Voodoo Child’ was played to finish, with a class version of Led Zeppelin’s – ‘Rock N’ Roll for the encore. It’s good to hear covers being played well but also in a bands own style. With good vocals and guitar playing and a well synched bass and drums ‘Dillinger’ did a great job. It was also good to have another pub in the local area in support of ‘Keeping Live Music Alive’, so well done to the White Horse!
