Making their debut here at long last The Welsh T Band crossed the border from Yorkshire and performed some hot classic rock/blues along with some original material from their CD entitled “Where The Road Leads”.

John Terry, aka Welsh T, the founder of the band on lead vocal and guitar was superb, his contrasting vocals were fabulous and was the catalyst for the bands overall performance – it’s what front men do and he can.

On lead guitar was Kevin “Geetar”Ackroyd a musician of the highest order his skillful solos and riffs were brilliant, a cornerstone of the band. The rhythm section was well stocked with David Hoyle on bass guitar and on drums Greg Gallagher – all was faultless in the engine room.

The core of the band over the last 15 years have been up and down the country gigging on the pub circuit and have performed at many music festivals including the R&B festival at Colne.

This band has a lot more to offer I’m sure of that, with superb musicianship and a passion for performing to packed venues. The crowd enjoyed the music and danced the night away, as another great night for live music came to a close.

The original songs of the album performed by the band were “Lucky Man”, ” Sweet Shop”, “April Fool Blues”, “I Don’t Know”, “How Much”, “It’s Cold Outside”, “Place in my Heart”, and the title song “Where The Road Leads”.

The ‘bread and butter classics’ performed were “Got My Mojo Working”,  “Before You Accuse Me”, “If My Baby Quit Me”, “Albatross”, “Need Your Love So Bad”, “The Sky is Crying”, and many more.
