Erja Lyytinen Show
Well, my other half and I went to the Boom Boom Club last Friday and
were treated to a wonderful show by Erja and her band. The missus was
on her feet at the end and I haven't seen that for a long time.

We liked the venue too even though we approached with some trepidation through the unpromising surroundings. It was friendly and the staff
all made us feel welcome: thumbs up to them.

So thank you for organising that really enjoyable evening. A bonus was
that it was at a price we could actually afford!

Hi Pete
Just wanted to thank you for getting them back last night, brilliant show and better than the first time.

Spoke to Dale and the drummer afterwards, they are keen to come back, as am I. I’ve waited years for nights like these, keep them coming!

Pete, just to say I have been to many great and wonderful gigs you have put on at the Boom Boom and the Beaverwood, but Tuesday nights Moorland and Arbuckle was probably the best to date, they were phenomenal, I also bought the new album and that too is great.

Keep up the fab work and thank you for bringing us this brilliant band, so much appreciated by myself, and my other half and daughter who also came and had a blast!

The rearranged 20th Anniversary Show for Never The Bride on Saturday 4th June was just FAB!! Reliably great gig from NTB as ever. Of course I would have loved it if the band could have played a well deserved encore but unfortunately Nikki's expansive (as-ever) between song chat, longish interval (not to mention the dreaded 11pm curfew) put paid to that. A shame but it did nothing to diminish the very special bond between the band and their fans. Great welcome and service from all concerned (yes including the bar staff). Well done! I shall return...

I went last night having heard good things about salvation Jayne ,but had never heard their music. I didn't expect what I got!
I was enthralled and excited and couldn't stop smiling throughout their set. When they took their encore I could have gone home happy,they alone were worth the price of admission.
When Rob Tognoni strode on stage brimming with humour and confidence and played the first chords I knew It was going to be special.I was euphoric last night and it wasn't the wine.

Just like to say what a great gig last night by Marcus Malone despite sound problems early doors. Seen some great bands down at the Beaverwood over last few years but that was really great.
Gig had a real good feel factor about it and I think that came across with the audience reaction. Cracking night out! The gig was recorded live but the reason was not mentioned. Was it radio? Future cd?

Hi Pete,

Just a note to say how much I enjoyed Black Country Community tonight. The singer had a great voice and the rest of the band were pretty great too.
The crowd was small, but the response was not. We knew who the losers were even if they did not.
Lets hope the band get a good turn-out at The Boom Boom. They could have made a few extra bob if they’d have had some merch for sale. I would have bought a tee shirt.

Most of the gigs I go to tend to be guitar driven, so last night made a nice change to go and see a vocalist. Dana Fuchs has been on my radar for a few years but somehow I kept missing her when she was over in the UK. Last night I made a point of going to see her at The Beaverwood Club and was not disappointed. A brilliant performer, amazing voice, great songs.

I've seen Focus many times in the last few years (the first album I ever bought was Moving Waves when I was 10 in 1973), but the concert at the Boom Boom Club on Friday, I think ,was the best I have ever seen them play.

Hoping the Pink Fairies will play with two drummers. . . .

Johnny Warman's Magic Bus Band will be playing their Total Who Show on Thursday March 26th 2015 and hope to see as many Who Fans as possible at this fantastic venue.

Driving to Newquay in 1971, I was 20 years old, and it was my turn to drive the last part of the trip, when my mate took out a cassette and said “Have you heard this?” and as he inserted the cassette and the music started, it would change my life forever. It was Who’s Next, and the power and the glory of the music, just reinforced my musical ambitions.

I went on to write, record and perform my own material with some of the greatest names in popular music Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, Dave Gilmour, The E Street Band especially Nils Lofgren, Asia and many more but my love of The Who’s material has never left me.

The passion, the power, and the lyrics, were as if they had their finger on the pulse of my generation, no pun intended, and the majesty of Pete Townsend’s music, and the way they played it, burned into our psyche.

We do not imitate The Who, we wish to be known as one of the greatest exponents of the music of The Who, and it is the music that is the most important part. We have our own unique form of delivery, and it is the music that we pay tribute to. Maximum Entertainment, just as it say’s on their Iconic Poster.

We play the songs from their early years, all the hits, Tommy, Live at Leeds and Quadrophenia, and we hope that you will come along and celebrate with us and just have the greatest night reliving these amazing songs.
Hope to see your faces in our crowd !!! Arrow

Happy New Year.

Just thought I’d let you know how much I enjoyed last nights gig. As you know, I’m not a fan of Tribute Bands and am not that familiar with Neil Young’s music , but I gave it a go none the less and am jolly glad I did.

Geronimo put on a great rocking show which was much appreciated by a good sized audience.

This is what I call a true tribute act, i.e. they pay tribute to the music by letting their love for it shine through and in turn share their personality with their audience rather than impersonating someone else doing so.

The Boom Boom Club 1000th Gig and an Evening for Walter Trout
My official second residence is the Boom Boom Club, the scene of so very many memorable gigs over so many years and tonight’s experience falls straight in to that exalted category.
There really was only one place I could be tonight and it was for two very special reasons; first and foremost incredibly tonight was the 1000th gig that Pete Feenstra has promoted at the Boom Boom Club and secondly a further evening organised by Pete to show our love and continued support for Walter Trout as he continues his long journey back to the Bluest of health.

Venue : Beaverwood Club/Stevie Nimmo

Just wanted to say thanks for a good show at Chislehurst on Thursday. I saw the Nimmo Brothers there at the Beaverwood a couple of years ago, and I saw King King down at Southend, Cliffs Pavillion, earlier this month. So seeing Stevie Nimmo completed the set Smile The Wynds Of Life album is not bad but I have to say that seeing the band live was much better, much more raw.

But before the main event was Troy Redfern, and what a great surprise that was. I had not heard of his band before, but was impressed enough to pick up the album at the interval. And I'm glad I did. I am just listening to Warcry as I write this and what a damn good track it is. It doesn't look like he gets down this way very often, but I will try to catch him at the Boom Boom club in January.

Thanks for another great night of live music.
All the best,

Hello, Pete. Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Hats Off To Led Zep on Saturday. We missed them the first time around, and we like the other Led Zep tributes we have seen at Sutton before, but this lot really impressed us. Professional, talented, entertaining and – in the case of the lead singer in particular – very easy on the eye!! We liked the way they just got on with the job, no chit-chat between songs and not too much ego on show, though there was plenty of chest on display – but I can cope with that, lol! Hope we see them back there again very soon! Thanks for a great, fun evening. Clare X

Venue : Boom Boom Club - Ryan McGarvey Review

And so the list of memorable nights goes on at The Boom Boom Club. For once I am speechless, the gig tonight was truly sensational, two power trios that are the very definition of the term.
The Mark Pontin Group set a high bar with a scorching opening set that was energetic and skilfully delivered, and big praise to young David Davies on drums in only his second gig with the band. Take a bow David. Mark Pontin Group just grow and grow in stature and tonight Mark displayed his usual prowess on the guitar with some brilliant shredding and Jack hammer riffing. Chasing Blood an absolute stand-out, grooves and grinding licks a plenty.
Then the headliner, the phenomenal and jaw dropping Ryan McGarvey, this fella is now major league amongst his peers and tonight he showed just why displaying every weapon in a guitarists arsenal to stun and strafe a hugely appreciative audience.
Ryan needs to be seen and heard to be believed, the power, precision, tone and feel he wrenches from his guitars are quite extraordinary.
Rock driven blues or blues driven rock, take your choice but however it is defined it is unique in style and delivery from the massive riffs of Joyride through the gigantic grooves of Prove Myself and the full on rock of Never Seem to Learn. And throw in slow burning blues on Cryin' Over You and the dirty low down blues of newie Memphis and you have just some of the ingredients that made up this killer show.
I cannot do the young man justice with my mere words and they really do fail me when I seek to describe the truly earth shattering aural soundscape that is Mystic Dream. So dense, intense and multi- faceted it is almost orchestral. McGarvey riffed, hooked and soloed his way through nigh on 20 minutes, features, hands and body contorted to extort a torrent of notes from his beautiful Les Paul. Just when you thought you had heard it all Ryan hit the overdrive and effects pedals and produced simply unbelievable sounds, wrenching his hands through the frets, completely detuning the top string that resulted in a wall of sound that was reminiscent of a strafing fighter jet
Ryan McGarvey has a God given talent, skill and feel like this are born not taught but such is the guy's humility it is in safe and priceless hands.
An awesome and outstanding gig from two outstanding bands who just happen to be lovely guys as well.
I am exhilarated and sleep is impossible , I know not how these guys come down from a natural high like this
Final word to Pete Feenstra for the miracles he continues to weave.

Hi Pete

Thanks again for another great Billy Walton Band gig on Thursday just gone.

The addition of the brass section really takes them to a new level imo...... good solid support from Albany Down as well.

And thanks again for keep on promoting these bands, without which many people would just not get to see talent at this level.... Keep real music live!

HI Pete
Still can't get over how good The Move were last Friday. I have been looking on Youtube etc for any videos of the gig, I was close to the font and I think people were filming and I just wondered if you knew or could ask if anybody would be prepared to download the films.

Many thanks & kind regards

Venue : Boom Boom Club May 16th

A huge thank you to Pete and Bruce for the amazing gig on Friday May 16th at the Boom Boom. The air conditioning was not quite ready but the crowd were and boy you sang in all the right places and the atmosphere was electric until the last roars died away. Marcus played his heart out and totally commanded his stage area and his sound and tone was out of this World especially on Purple Haze and we had so much fun. You guys responded so well to all the commands and the power of your voices knocked me back especially on Lola !!! The Funk and Glam moments showed the versatility of the band and we were all having such a great time. Toward the end somebody called out Boris !!! and I did not need any cues as Steve Tilling started to perform his Tour de
Force Boris the Spider but the lighting did not allow him to see the words clearly so I ripped them off the floor and held them so that he could finish his amazing show and we laughed at the end as it was all so spontaneous. Our keyboard genius Andy Neve showed just how great a player and vocalist he is and to reiterate Steve Tilling and Richard Willoughby kept the heartbeat of the band. There was definitely something very special about this performance and the very special crowd who made so much noise and sang so well in all the right places. Wont get fooled again brought the Show to its conclusion and it took me hours to come down. Thank you all so much to those that came and for supporting the Magic Bus Band and we are always looking for new travellers to hop on and enjoy the ride of your lives. Johnny x See you all at the next gig !!

Thanks for a fantastic gig on Friday. We really enjoyed it. Devlinblue were an excellent support band and King King was just amazing. The lead singer obviously enjoyed every minute of it too (apart from the quality of the sound at the beginning).

We will be looking out for other gigs from both these bands. Thank you again for providing us with great live music.

And what an evening it was.. a terrific way to spend a Sunday night.

Just wanted to add my comments to those of many others and that's a massive 'thanks' to you and all those who take part both on and off the stage.

I hadn't realised how many young, British blues guitarists Walter has influenced let alone mentored. Apart from showing my support for Walter I now have about half a dozen new names and CD's to go and check out.

Let's hope that Walter is successful in getting a liver transplant so that I can come back to The Boom Boom club and see him tear the place down once again

A fantastic night and an equally fantastic job for getting it all together on Sunday.

If the response on FB is anything to go by it was an event that will live long in the memory for so many reasons and your part in helping Walter Trout will not be forgotten by so many, a place at Saint Peters table is booked with a large cognac to smooth the journey!! LOL!!

Once again Pete, well done and thanks for allowing me my small part in a legendary night.

All the Best

There are numerous people to thank for the great evening including Pete Feenstra Don McKay Golly Gallagher Phil the Soundman Kirby Bryant and ALL the Musicians. My continued prayers for Walter Trout Marie Trout Jon Trout and the family.

Venue : Walter Trout Evening review

An Evening for Walter Trout – Shepherd’s Bush Empire

This very poignant, very special event I would like to Christen as ‘Live Aid for the Blues,’ that is no hyperbole, mere fact because tonight the legendary Shepherd’s Bush played host to a great many of the finest Blues artists in the world.

The reason for the gathering of this electrifying clan and equally fervent fans; a benefit gig for living Blues legend Walter Trout, currently gravely ill with Liver failure. I feel sure Walter will have heard and felt the love for him as the whole place was carried on a wave of homage and devotion to the Godfather of modern Blues.

Phrases like; ‘never to be repeated, a total one off, unique, unparalleled, memorable are thrown around with abandon but truly rarely apply but tonight, all of these phrases and adjectives apply in full. This was one completely and utterly memorable night and one that I will carry in my mind, memory, heart and soul for the rest of my life. There is not a musical movement that can deliver the quality, power, passion and emotion like the Blues Community and tonight it was out in force and created an unstoppable torrent of unforgettable music and moments.

Amazing gig last night from Springsteen: A tribute to the boss. Fantastic vocals and as close to the real thing you'll see. The crowd was brilliant and to produce a show like that with apparently just a weeks notice was unbelievable. I'll be spearing the word for next time! Well done guys!

Gutted to have missed Babajack last night (I saw them at Broadstairs Blues Bash in Feb and they blew me away) but already had tickets for City Funk Orchestra in Cranleigh, Surrey, who were fabulous, so you should have a fantastic night with them on the 29th. Hope to make it to BBC soon.

A huge thank you to Pete Feenstra and all The Who fans that came to watch Johnny Warman's Magic Bus perform their Total Who Show on Friday night at The Best Music Venue in South London The Boom Boom Club !!! and the amazing crowd never let us down and the reaction was incredible. Boris the Spider was inspired and Steve Tilling showed a World Class Bass Player on the very Top of his game. The atmosphere at the Boom Boom is so captivating and we did not want to leave the Stage. Thank you all for your generosity regarding my Marathon Run and we raised a lot of money. Please put May 16th in your diary for the 50th Anniversary of The Mods & Rockers and this is the Show that we are performing in UK Theatres and when we performed it last year for our first ever gig at The Boom Boom we had a great crowd in and beautiful young ladies dancing on the Chairs and tables !!! Repeat Please !!!
Thank you all so much for a truly brilliant night Johnny x
