Boneshakers Go Off Like a Rocket at George Stephenson

FOLLOW THE BAND

The Boneshakers had built up a head of steam for the George Stephenson gig - and it showed, because from the second they exploded onto the stage - engines at full throttle - they took off like the proverbial ROCKET!
 What an amazing show these guys put on.  The whole of the blues/rock music scene are talking about the Boneshakers - and so they should.  To steal the words of Brian Setzer's song:


THESE GUYS ARE RED HOT

With new numbers introduced to their sets like 'Call me the Breeze' and 'High Heel Sneakers', with added deep shine to their performance that made you squeeze your eyes tight shut - and extra LICKS of spit and polish to boot, these lads are glaringly sensational.

NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT FOLKS, THESE LADS ARE HITTING THE HEIGHTS IN THE
WORLD OF BLUES MUSIC
 




Russ (lead guitar and vocals) SHOOK, RATTLED AND ROLLED throughout, and, sweating like a bull at the end of a fantastic performance, said,
"Wish I'd remembered me fan!"
 So do I, Russ!

RUSS HIRD
Ronnie (blues harp and backing vocals) HOOTED AND HOLLERED the most amazing blues harp anyone would wish to hear.  With a great big grin on a face now devoid of that famous goatee beard, he said:
"I'm lovin' it, loving it, lovin' it!"
RONNIE SEMPLE
So are we, Ronnie!

When I spoke to Dave (Bass Guitar) after the gig, and I told him his performance on the bass tonight was absolutely STEAMING, he said:

"Never mind me bass steamin' - there's steam comin' oot me ears!"
DAVE HILDRETH

Gordon CLICKETY-CLACKED in style on drums tonight, PLATFORMING superb brilliance.

"Aye, great gig, but why did I bring me mother!"
GORDON SMILES 
Well, your mam, loved every single minute of it.
