Average White Band at Ronnie Scott's

Thursday 31-Jul-2014

AWB are part of the soundtrack to Mary's life. Not so for me - or so I thought until I heard them play - so many incredibly familiar songs.

To quote Frith Street Post:
"When a band opens with the classic “Pick Up The Pieces” and closes with “Let’s Go Round Again” then you know you’re in the presence of greatness. [...] I had arrived at the gig hoping to see a legendary band deliver a workmanlike performance – after a poor Ginger Baker outing last year, I have been a little wary – but was mesmerised by the energy, tight professionalism and deep, deep catalogue."
Full review...

So many people consider themselves lucky to go to Ronnie Scott's even once (see Trip Advisor reviews) but we get to go regularly (Gullible's Travels - Ronnie Scott's). And this was a brilliant evening with friends Grant and Helen, and some of the best music going - epic!
