UPTOWN TRAFFIC Saturday 8th September 2018

OUR REVIEW:

Uptown Traffic made their debut appearance at the club where they did not disappoint !

They provided 2 sets of great music which kept the dancefloor busy.
The brass section certainly added extra depth to the music.

 

The whole show gave us all a trip down memory lane with lots of music to dance and singalong to!

A-KAY  Saturday 18th August 2018

Barry White Tribute A-Kay travelled down from Liverpool to perform for us.  

 

OUR REVIEW: 

The larger than life character performed a set of Barry White classics to a packed house.  After a short break A-Kay followed with a second set of Soul and Motown.   The dancefloor was busy for the majority of the evening.

 

 

To paraphrase the Big Man himself :

Let the music play
I just want to dance the night away,
Here, right here, in 'Beenham Club' is where I'm gonna stay
All night long... keep the music strong
Ah, let it play on and on, let it play on and on.......................

 

And it did play on and on   

 

A-Kay certainly kept us entertained :-)

Our very own Tambourine man (Jason) joined in and also confidently shook the maracas for one tune :-)

There were even a couple of Rigsby fans that had travelled from Germany  - it was great to meet Tammi and Jurgen and hope they enjoyed their visit to the club:-)

They have many years of experience, playing old school classic dance hits from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan and many more.

 

OUR REVIEW :

 The SOULTONES definitely impressed everybody in the Club with their first appearance.

 The energy was great, the vocals were smooth and the music was classy - what more could we ask for :-)

   

 Everybody was having such a great time that we didn't realse that the night had passed so quickly (too quickly for   us!)

 

 Just a pity that it couldn't carry on and on and on......We could have all listened and danced to the Soultones until we   dropped!!

 

Fantastic band *****

 

RELAPSE 80s Saturday 28th April 2018

Click HERE for Relapse 80s Facebook page

 

Relapse 80s are 6 highly experienced musicians who will take us on a fantastic musical journey back to the days of leg warmers, eye liner and the best pop music ever made!

Definitely not to be missed !!

OUR REVIEW :

Their first appearance at the Club has definitely assured them of a second booking .....when we can fit them in !

 

So 80s MUSIC - you either love it or hate it,  if you think the latter then Relapse can probably convert you with their performance, they had us singing along to some Duran Duran, Deacon Blue, Rick Astley, Spandau Ballet and many others that we had forgotten we knew the words to.

 

The musical talents, vocal abilities and friendliness of this band are fantastic.  So impressive they had the place jumping with their faultless renditions of some real classic 80s tunes.  Becoming a bit of a "tradition" our very own tambourine man assisted (?) in a couple of numbers.  The inclusion of the megaphone/voice changer for Video Killed the Radio Star was described as "a touch of genius" by one of our music loving members. 

Can't think of anything else to say about this group - not without seeming like they are paying us for compliments!!- The bottom line is anybody that books RELAPSE won't be disappointed they are a great bunch of people..... who just so happen to be are very talented musically.

 

 They can come and play in our living room anytime :-)

OUR REVIEW:

We always know that we are in for an evening of first class Country Music when we book Chris and the gang. 

This warm Saturday night was no exception, the place was packed and they delivered 3 sets of fantastic music.

 

Chris, Roly, Nick, Lee and Gerry were pure class again - always true genetlemen who act proffesionally (even when having the lyrics for Chrystal Chandeliers thrust into their hands!)

 

We are looking forward to welcoming them back in October - if you haven't seen them yet then we would really recommend you come along and see first hand why these guys have a real following.

Reading based well-rehearsed 5-piece band playing rock covers from a wide range of artists.  Come and welcome them at their first appearance at Beenham Club - Highly recommended for a rocking night :-)

 

OUR REVIEW:

 

WOW !!

As first appearances go this band literally blew our socks off !!  Sooooo much energy that at times it felt as though we were struggling to keep up with them!  Our very own Tambourine man Jason was definitely put to the test trying to keep up.  The sound was excellent, the song choices were ideal for all of us there, we were definitely treated to some proper entertainment.

 

An excellent night and a really great group of guys - if you ever get the chance to see DIRTBAG go for it, you will not regret it !!
