Just witnessed your best live gig?.. send us a review!

VOODOO SIX Scala, King's Cross, London 20 March  2009

Well a long awaited return to the stage for the Voodoo Six guys and it was worth the wait. They played a blinder of a set that showed their joy at returning to the stage from being cooped up in the studio. I arrived at the venue and bumped into some familiar faces from previous gigs as well as a couple of forum-ites.

Once inside I met up with the band and had a catch up chat with them all...new cd and tour plans as well as the usual 'What the f*ck have you been up to since we last met ' type chats. The bar prices I have to say, were considering there is a recession, a bloody joke.

The venue itself is quite good , especially the live area we were in. I missed most of the first band Fallen Angel but what I heard sounded very good, had a slight Boston/Journey feel to it and very good musicians. Next up was a band called 'Shush' , who were good as well .

The female lead singer/guitarist is quite striking and has a good voice .I particularly enjoyed their cover of Blondie s 'Call Me'. The only downside of their set was the lack of sound coming from the lead guitarist, whether that was his fault or the sound mixers I do not know.

Now the band Cherry Brakewells , an all female group, I would recommend people to go and see, not only great looking but musically very very good. They are London based and play regularly in the area. They fused rock and funk together influences seemingly to me being Hendrix, Kravitz ,Zep and Prince. I bought the CD when I got home from the gig and will be checking them out again. They had a good following at the gig.

The V6 boys hit the stage to a great cheer from their loyal fans. They proceeded to open with 'Crawl' then storming through the set which included 3 songs from the forthcoming CD.

They moved about and interacted with the crowd like they had been playing gigs for 20 years. It was a joy to be there and see them enjoying it as much as the crowd were.

Highlights for me was a brilliant 'Mistaken' 'Walking On Nails' and a storming 'Feed My Soul'. At 5 a ticket it has to be the bargain of the year so far.

SETLIST: Crawl, No Friend Of Mine, Walking On Nails, Faith, Show Me The Way, Feed My Soul, Killer, Mistaken, Shine On, Break My Fall, Slip Inside
