We revisited a club we'd not been to in a while at the beginning of February, Just For Kicks in Yaxley, near Peterborough. On stage here were a band that was new to us, Richie and the Rockets, a relatively new five piece.
Good brace of sets from these guys, varying from 'Rock This Town' to 'Ma Ma Marie'. The club itself is a good dance venue with Joe Chapman DJing under his stage name 'Steady as a Rock'.
Well run, well attended club, worth visit.
Just before the end of the month, one of our regular haunts, the Starfighter Club in Wreningham, Norfolk, put on another new band (to us).
The Big Time Bossmen, are four young guys from Belgium who brought their own twists on well known tunes, the like of 'Mustang Sally', '5-10-15 Hours' and 'Sam Hall' with their own music. Hugely enthusiastic bunch, they are, and look out for them playing the Rockabilly Rave in June this year (see below).
If you fancy staying a bit longer at a venue, here are some weekenders to add to your calendar
And by way of a bonus, here's a couple more places to visit, starting with Shake Rattle and Roll which takes place near the end of this month, and on the right, the first look at the line up for the Rhythm Riot. If you thought after the Pee Wee King show, nothing could top it? Well check out the main event here
