Gig Review: From The Jam at The Cambridge Corn Exchange

Gig Review:  From The Jam at The Cambridge Corn Exchange

From The Jam Outside the venue on a cold November night, in the center of Cambridge, I was milling among predominantly men of ‘a certain age’.   All were clearly eager to get stuck into long-ago forged appreciation for the night’s gig.  From The Jam, a reduced version of musicians who collectively made up the original band, The Jam, are on tour, dealing out the cherished hits as they travel.  Led by original bassist Bruce Foxton…

Martin Kemp – The Cambridge Junction – Gig Review

Martin Kemp – The Cambridge Junction – Gig Review

You just can’t beat an 80’s music night hosted by a member of one of the bands that anchored the era, Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet.  The decade produced tunes that are still played at many a wedding reception because they are simply so danceable.  The bass player for the New Romantic trendsetting band seemed the perfect ambassador for a journey though the decade on the dancefloor!  It was a time of excess and experimentation…

I was introduced to great rock n roll music such as The Eagles, ACDC,…

Leeds Festival And All The Best Bits! – Gig Review

Perfect Summer sun on a bank holiday weekend, what could be better, right?  Well, the line up at the Leeds Festival this weekend actually!  It was not only a stunner with the weather but the rocking sets on stage after stage.  The Leeds Festival (and its sister festival, Reading) were all lit up and killing it all weekend long.  Headliners such as The Foo Fighters, 1975 Post Malone and 21 Pilots were cherries on some…

Jarrod Dickenson – Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Jarrod Dickenson – Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Labeled as a ‘Texas Troubadour’, the title is fitting for artist Jarrod Dickenson, whom I met up with at the recent Cambridge Folk Festival.   I had the immense pleasure of seeing his stunning set while there as well.  With his smooth, velvety voice coupled in the languorous and easy style he occupies, Jarrod comes across in the most unassuming yet talented way. He is liquid and thoughtful in his delivery and attentive in the details. …

Jack Broadbent -Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Jack Broadbent -Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

At the historic Cambridge Folk Festival, the musically brilliant Jack Broadbent took some time to discuss his origins in music, playing with Ronnie Wood and what lies ahead for rest of the year and into 2020. Categorically, this is an artist like you have never seen before.  Jack can alternate between blues and folk without any hesitation and it all feels organic and true as he does so.  With every song, he just kills it. …

Review: Our View From The Latitude Festival

Review:  Our View From The Latitude Festival

Another year, another Latitude Festival over and done with too quickly. The festival tone always seems to balance beautifully somewhere between travelling circus and amusement mecca.  It’s a wicked wonderland of the magical mixed with solid performances across the entire entertainment spectrum.  This festival is a must-see for me yearly and it never disappoints.  It is a carnival ride of wacky and gorgeously out-of-bounds on occasion but that is what makes it unique.  There was…
