weekend was a very busy one for musical events and on Saturday
evening at Broome Farm there were not one but two brilliant
bands performing at the Blues Night. The
first to take to the stage were The Deadbeats and vocalist,
Haydn Dix, bassist, Dr. Paul Downey, drummer, Phil Thomas,
Keyboard player, Ray Whittaker and Jonathan Duffett soon
had everybody up on their feet dancing to some great music.
Although the band's set was not entirely of blues music,
those attending enjoyed their performance to the full. You
can see The Deadbeats' performance of 'These Boots are Made
for Walking' by clicking the video link on the left. With
the beat being far from dead, this energetic and entertaining
band are well worth going to see.
Broome Cupboard Blues Band were up next and what a fabulous
performance came from this popular local blues outfit. With
some raw vocals and excellent blues harp from Toby Lovell,
excellently supported by Tom Lee-Hynes and 'Polish Pete',
complementing each other on lead guitar, St. John providing
some solid bass and Martin on drums, the Broome Cupboards
gave their audience blues at its very best. If you would
