Zoe Gilby Quartet @ Hoochie Coochie Dec. 15

Zoe Gilby (vcl); Mark Williams (gtr); Andy Champion (bs); Richard Brown (dms).
An office party had been celebrating all day - the volume of noise was akin to that at the Leazes End at St. James' Park - or whatever they call it now - after Newcastle had scored the winning goal.
Zoe faced a daunting task!
The start was delayed but the decibels increased until it was a case of "The Show Must Go On"
And go on it did - and how!
Zoe didn't silence them but she won their applause with All or Nothing at All and from then on it was immaculate interpretations from her ever increasing songbook.
I'm Always Drunk in San Francisco (how appropriate re the audience!); You'd Be so Nice to Come Home to; You Turned the Tables on me; One Note Samba; Straighten up and Fly Right and Travellin' Blues made for a scintillating first set and by the third number I hardly noticed the crowd noises. Zoe was in great voice and Mark, Andy and Richard (One Note Samba - phew!) were with her all the way.
Because of the late start I had to leave before the end but I stayed long enough to enjoy I Thought About You; On The Edge; I'm Beginning to see the Light/When Lights Are Low; Beautiful Love; Waters of March and Comes Love.
Quite a night!
Lance.
