The Collective @ Hoochie Coochie February 13

Tim Bloomer (gtr); Dominic Snaith (keys); Paul Crown (drums); Martyn Dixon (bs. gtr.); Kieron (vcl).
Good to see The Collective back at Hoochie and with a good crowd in attendance, It was rockier and less jazz orientated than previous gigs with only Tim and Dominic from the last Collective on stage. Nevertheless, they're all talented young guys and when Kieron joined them for the second set the sparks flew.
I remember Kieron from one of the Splinter jam sessions where he sang the verse to As Time Goes By completely unaccompanied. This time he was in a bluesier mode - Long John Baldry was a comparison made although the final I'm Comin' Home Baby was Mel Tormé.
The first set was solid Rock with overtones of Cream evident in the guitar blasts from Tim Bloomer and Martyn on bass. Paul had effective solos and kept the adrenalin flowing whilst Dominic Snaith produced much more than mere piano sounds from his keyboard stack.
The Collective are back next month and a new combo, The Pilgrim St. Band - a brainchild of Paul Susans - are here next week.
March 7 it's JASON REBELLO!
How does Warren manage to pull so many names to his Pilgrim St. bar?
If you like what he does now's the time to show your support. Not just by buying the tickets which we hope you'll do anyway (only £10 for JR!) but to cast your vote for Hoochie in this year's Licensed Trade Awards by following the link.  http://www.licensedtradeinternational.com/awards.php

PS: Can anyone name check the band for me?
PPS: Thanks to Tim for corrections.
