A tiny venue somewhere in deepest darkest Surrey became home for some 300 people and Jamie Moses’ World Famous Red Sox. As we found last time, the band attracts a rich collection of people ranging from teens right up to the more mature “Dad Rock” fans (some of whom needed to sit during the gig). Yet again, the band impressed the audience with a mix of music from across the years. The jokes, the facial expressions and the little rituals that each band member have contribute to a great night out.
The atmosphere is one of friendly humour, charged with great guitar, drumming, and of course Spike’s keyboard playing. What comes across from the band is that they really enjoy playing together. Both the BF and I commented on it being almost a party – not just for the audience, but for the band. At one point I looked to the stage to see the tops of heads bobbing around in front of me…you can’t help tapping your toes and moving to the music!
I can’t wait to see them again – next time in October when Jamie and Spike will be with Queen at the O2. If you get the chance to see them, do. I can’t recommend them enough.
P.S. Thanks to Jane for organising our tickets.
