King King
« on: October 28, 2015, 10:40:17 PM »
I went to see King King in Coventry on Sunday. Excellent blues from a really tight knit band. The main man Alan Nimmo is a great guitarist and has got a wonderful voice. There were only about 150 of us old rockers there, but the band were full of humour and looked to have enjoyed themselves. Check them out. You will be impressed.

only 150?? I can think of a Welsh band, who would have loved to see 150 at some of their gigs even with DL & MJ within the ranks.

Saw them in Exeter and they were excellent. Some tricksy stuff on the old guitar meant it was a bit of a show as well.
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense

They're in with a shout in my eagerly anticipated ('nt) Top 5 gigs of the year!!
Will post soon along with my Top 5 albums.
All very subjective of course...but it's traditional...and it's interesting to see what has floated the boats of other borders.

A flying Dutchman on keys, and I mean flying. His Hammond organ added so much to the sound. The whole band were flying. Great drummer and bassist too. Best gig I've been to in a long time.
