Top of the morning 'Erryone' here's a review and photos from the show we did at The Half Moon in Putney, London with our soul partners Northsyde.

Last night had another unexpected treat for me and that was my introduction to the music of The Paddy Maguire Band.
WOW.....what a great band. Like the mighty Northsyde, these guys are a no nonsense, bullshit free band that come out and slap you around the face with honest energy. Not only can they play, but they can entertain big style, with fun to the fore and smiley faces a plenty. Mash ups and hard driving sing along fun is this bands trademark and the infectious northern demeanor makes you feel part of the party from the opening number. But they ain't no one trick pony and the stunning delivery of the Etta James classic, 'I would rather go blind' caused many a neck hair to stand to attention, Good work Jenna.

Last night I had the pleasure of watching two bands that not only are brimming with talent but also, and this is the important bit, know how to entertain. They so obviously enjoyed what they were doing that their enthusiasm spilled from the stage and swept the audience along for the ride. And to top it all off both bands were fronted by ridiculously talented female vocalists. So my thanks to Lorna Fothergill and Jenna Hooson Maguire and all of Northsyde and The Paddy Maguire Band. A magic night and can't wait to see you again!
