Mo Scott Band @ The Central Bar Gateshead.

Mo Scott (vcl); Gary Dunn (gtr); Neil Harland (bs); Paul Smith (dms).
Another stonking set by La Petite Mo who rocked her way through a choice, albeit familiar, selection of blues belters.
T-bone Shuffle started things moving and new guitarist Gary Dunn soon showed he could handle the gig with a blistering solo.

B.B.King, Muddy Waters, Ray Charles were all in there along with Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby, Fever, Rockin' Chair and Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.
On bass guitar Daddy Cool, Neil Harland, laid down the perfect foundation. If Neil ever played a bum note it would be headlines in the media! Paul Smith on drums offered a physical contrast to previous drummer Lloyd but he did the business and did it good. There were times when guitar and drums displayed a degree of uncertainty which is to be understood and it didn't detract from the performance. Indeed as someone said to me, "A change of line-up leads to diversity."
As an added attraction a dancer called Marilyn enlivened things with a bump and grind routine in front of the stage - what a mover!
Splendid afternoon.
