The Imposters @ The Magnesia Bank. Monday August 30th.

F'reez (vocals & percussion), Edd Carr (guitar & vocals), Graham Sinclair (electric bass) & Adam Sinclair (drums & vocals)
Clubland's beers at the Crescent Club encouraged your reviewer to seek refuge in the Maggie Bank. A four o'clock kick-off featured The Imposters - jazz they aren't but, but, but what a band! Two of the region's young jazz turks (guitarist Edd Carr and drummer Adam Sinclair) in tandem with bassist Graham Sinclair and sweet soul singer F'reez are The Imposters.
A pint of Handrian and Border.s Gladiator in hand, it was two sets of top class funk and soul with a bit of reggae to spice things up. Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder (Superstition), the Zuton's Valerie, Sting's Message in a Bottle (with Adam showing Stewart Copeland how a reggae rhythm should be played) and some Bob Marley together with Further On Up the Road (think Freddie King think Edd Carr) added up to a great afternoon of great tunes performed with consummate ease. Adam and Edd provided the backing vocals for Cool Dude F'reez. Graham kept things funkin', the crowd bayed for more. Great band. Check 'em out.
Russell.
