Maine Street Maintain the Magic @ Malones

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
Another rousing, rip-roaring, barnstorming performance by the Maine Street Gang.
Jim repeated his success of last week - Gonna Get a Girl - Herbie took us on a Slow Bus To Byker with lot's of other local references whilst Ray played some lovely Ruby Braffish phrases (they must come with the embouchure!).
Olive did, among others, You Can Depend on Me and a politically correct Eenie Meenie Minie Mo.
As ever the rhythm section was rock solid with Malcolm laying down the chords right on the nose and Alan walkin' the bass ten times round the block.
Mike was - simply - Mike.
Catch them next week or at the 100 other venues they play each week!
Lance.
