I went to the Rayners last week to see The Price & enjoyed the gig and the venue - cool in an old school sort of way which London had been missing. Much friendlier than the attitudes of staff employed at the likes of Barfly & Mean Fiddler empire. Bar prices more sensible too - went to the Underworld on Sat - ??3.40 a pint for gawds sake........

My second visit to the Boom Boom in recent weeks was another real treat with a cracking performance by the Climax Blues Band. As one of the bands I had never managed to catch before, I decided to take on the Friday night traffic and was pleased I had. Even the M25 experience paled into insignificance after two hours of high energy Rock???n???Blues from what must be one the most accomplished touring bands I have seen for some time. After so many years on the road it is so refreshing to see a band appreciate the audience as much as the audience appreciated the band.

The Boom Boom has been a real find for me and I will be back for Otis Grand, but not before I do Rayners on Friday night.

Keep it up Pete, it is appreciated.



Any more plans for Farnborough Town FC?

Re:Limehouse Lizzy at the Rayners

In reply to the complaint below, they did make a few slightly sarcastic comments about there only being '15' in there when they kicked off, but almost everyone danced all the way through the gig and they played as good a set as I have ever seen them play. They were a little late coming on (some bloke next to me was moaning) and had no break, so maybe coming on 15 mins earlier and having a break MIGHT have been better, but I was fine with it all, so was my mate Steve who comes down with me most nights, and another mate Graham, who had not been before.

Re:Limehouse Lizzy at the Rayners Saturday 26th March.

For information.

The Band did not come on stage untill 10p.m. which was very late and definitely not appreciated by the assembled crowd. Front man kept making references to the small size of the audience and gave the impression that he wanted to get the performance over and done with and go home. When they are on form this is a very entertaining tribute but in my opinion they did not give of their best last Saturday. We felt lucky to get about an hour and a half out of them. Not one of this band's best performances.
See you again soon.

I was at the boom boom on Sunday and was blown away by Jan Akkerman. My only experience of his work to date was the more popular Focus material, which I have to say still stands up really well, although the more jazz funk material was also spot on. It is a great experience to get so close to a great performer in such an intimate setting.

It was my first time at the venue and I have allready booked for the Climax Blues Band, which I am sure will be the second of many visits to come?

Thanks Pete, if it wern't not for your (and those like you) efforts, live music would be sadly missed.

Hi Pete (and Mike),

I was also at the Audience gig in Sutton; I never got to see the band in their heyday and only had the odd track on various Charisma compilations - but I'm definitely going to see them again! What a fab live band.
I can't make the Camden appearence, but how about getting them into the Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon? And to keep the seventies theme, how about Claire Hamill as support? She's also looking for more gigs.
Sounds like a top double bill to me!

Hi I was at the BoomBoom Club for the AUDIENCE gig and was in heaven. I last saw the band at one of the Lyceum All-Nighters about 1971. They were great then and still are.

Tonight was as if Audience had never been away.

I have loved the band and championed their music since that All-Nighter and feel privileged to have heard them again after all these years. The years have certainly not 'weathered' their music. They are as fresh as they were to me all those years ago.
A great night! May there be many more.

Good work by the sound guys and Gwyn's fantastic '56 Fender Twin amp- creamy smooth and also clear and ringing when needed.

Thanks to Ian Parker for the terrific gig at the Green Man Barnet on Sunday night. It was a really powerful, inspired and moving experience which the small venue really enhanced. This is the third time we've seen the band and it gets better each time. It's really impressive the way the songs have evolved without losing their power.

You have a growing following down here in NW London and we're hoping Mr Feenstra is going to find a way to get you down here more often! Looking forward to the next time you're somewhere near us.

Hi Pete

I visited the Boom Boom club for the first time on Monday night and saw Rollin' Stoned. We thought the band was brilliant and had a good time.

My only criticism of the venue is that the stage is too low. Unless you're right at the front it's difficult to see the band. Which is important with a band like Rollin' Stoned who put on quite a visual show. Raising the stage plinth by just one or two feet would vastly improve the experience for gig-goers.

Everything else was just fine.

Thanks for keeping music live!

I've just been at The Boom Boom Club 'Gig of the Year' - Walter Trout & The Radicals.- in a vintage year of live music in Sutton.
With performers the calibre of Jan Akkerman / SAS Band / Stan Webb / Albert Lee / Boccigalupe / The Mods - Kinks - Yardbirds - Zombies - Animals + Tributes to the Greatest Bands of the '60's, 70's & 80's you have promoted The Boom Boom Club at Sutton United into the premier league of live music
But this gig, our second helping of TROUT in 2004, was so truly awesome that I cannot find superlatives to express just how good it was !!
I orge everybody to catch Trout whenever they can, and especially at Sutton - a great venue !

I thought the Mods at The rayners were brilliant??? each time I go to the Rayners the quality of the bands never ceases to amaze me.

I thought they did some of the Who numbers better than Who???s Who !! I really enjoyed Who???s Who but their ???sound??? was nowhere near as good as the ???Mods??? ??? it was almost too loud and painful on the ears.

The Mods singer was excellent ??? a real showman and I guess, a frustrated guitarist !!!

The drum solo was incredible and the sound quality was fantastic ??? they were obviously well miked up.

Keep up the good work Pete.

Hi Pete

What a wonderful gig with Walter Trout on Monday evening, thank you very much for putting the tickets to one side. Jagz is certainly a venue I will be returning to and I will be seeing Walter again (5th) when he plays the Mean Fiddler in November. I would like to be added to your mailing list please. As far as Musical prefernces are concerned I lean towards Blues & Rock with some some R&B, tribute bands are often very good and worth seeing.

Thank you so much for promoting the recent Pat Travers Band gig at The Rayners last Saturday. Always meant to hear his music so it was a great chance to do so. I even managed to persuade my wife to attend! Really looking forward to seeing Mick Taylor at The Rayners as I am a huge fan (missed his 100 Club and Boom Boom Club gigs so this is a must)! I am trying to round up as many rock/blues music lover friends as possible.

Best regards,

Excellent set from Kevin Ayers last Friday at Sutton. His songs pass far more than the test of time. Please try and bring him and his excellent band back for an encore!

Why is every gig by Roadhouse a 'New album launch?' do they record a new album for every gig they do?

Superb Gig - Rayners

"Dios Salve a la Reina" at the Rayners on Friday were very good indeed. We were very impressed by their accurate representation of "Queen" and their music.

Their show was very impressive and I feel the poor attendance was only due to the fact that they are at this stage new on the circuit.

I believe they are only playing a few gigs in the UK and I told their manager that they should seriously consider more active marketing of themselves in the UK. I am convinced there is a demand for this type of quality tribute band.

We unreservedly recommend this band to those who love the music of "Queen".
Full marks to you for getting hold of them. Looking forward to seeing them again.

With best wishes

Hi Pete,

Many thanks for a wonderful evening at Ascot on Tuesday for the Chappo gig.

I seriously wish you well with this venture. It???s the best club in the London area since the Worcester Park Club

Must thank you all for the hard graft that has gone into promoting "Chappo" over the past few years. Everyone sends their regards and thanks for keeping the faith, time and time again, in ensuring we get to see a few UK dates each year. People will always travel huge distances to see a truly great performer.

However, the venue "maketh the gig", and I was well pleased with the whole event on Tuesday. Once again thanks for having us and good luck with the future.

Finally a huge pat on the back for publishing a tremendous document. "Roger Chapman: A Silver celebration" is without doubt the best tour programme ever published on Chappo

All the best

Hi Pete,

We just wanted to thank you and let you know what a fabulous time we had at the SAS 'warm up gig' in Sutton on Friday night.

The artists were amazing and so was the atmosphere !!!

Please could you put me on your e-mail mailing list and let us know if there are any future similar gigs coming up - especially with the SAS Band or 'Tony Vincent' (who was fantastic).

It was a great night...

Many thanks

That was a superb gig on Friday, I really enjoyed it. Good sound, good audience, good music. I hope you can get them back.

Can you tell me more about Johnny Warmans charity bike ride and also why are The Mods being filmed by BBC2 in May?

Best wishes

Superb Gig - BoomBoom

Dear Pete,

This is just a quick note to say that the SAS Band's Warm Up Gig on Friday night was absolutely outstanding. The crowd response was unbelievable. I have only ever been to big concerts where you feel like one in many.
However, the atmosphere at the Boom Boom club was unlike anything that I have experienced before. It was a more intimate gig, where you could actaully see the band and singers, rather than them just being a dot in the distance!

I will definitely look out for more SAS Band gigs at your venue and recommend your venue to others.

Thanks again for making Friday night special.

Kind regards,

Helen Gill

RE: Boom Boom Club @ Sutton Utd FC

Pete - What can I say?!?! I think Friday night has spoilt me for anything else!!!! We all agreed that we would have paid double for the band, and I for one can't WAIT to see them again! I bought both their CDs afterwards, too! Those voices! Those songs! The sheer professionalism! They were simply superb and I feel sorry for anyone who didn't see them!

A big THANK YOU to everyone involved in organising one of the best nights I've ever had!! (Perhaps I need to get out more...)

Best wishes from a stunned and gobsmacked Clare! XX

Superb Gig - BoomBoom - SAS Band Friday - MAGIC.

Can't remember ever seeing so many great singers on stage LIVE before.

Took my daughter (quite young)and my wife (quite old) and they both enjoyed it as much as I did.

Thank You
