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
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
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
