Little Mo Band @ Central Bar, Gateshead.

Mo Scott (vcl), Rod Sinclair (vcl), Neil Harland (bs), Lloyd Howell (dms).
After last weeks belter by the Ray Stubbs R'n'B All Stars the punters wanted something special to follow and something special they got!
The new tables and stools have arrived giving the Blue Room a nice clean anaesthetised look about it. This is wrong - to fit the music the tables should have cigarette burns, beer stains and a few other unidentifiable (to a nun) stains to give it that earthy blues bar ambiance - no doubt they will with time come (well maybe not the nicotine).
However, such peripheral thoughts were banished once Little Mo did Big Mama Thornton's Hound Dog. We were off down the highway taking no prisoners. Mo can do unrequited and do it good.
Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby? Cutting edge Dinah - Fever, Peggy on Vodka with a Valium chaser. BB King and the suspects all contributed to a tremendous set by Tyneside's Empress of The Blues.
Rod Sinclair switched back and forward from Tele to Strat and sounded good on both with some bottleneck for good measure. Likewise Neil kept the Fender flag flying with both 4 and 5 string bass.
Lloyd, a metronomic powerhouse, ensured the Greyhound bus arived in Chicago on time.
It was one helluva trip.
Lance.
