Now it is very rare for me to post anything about cover bands, however, The Goodges (Mark & Emma Goodjohn) doing their “Rock Out with The Goodges” thing are;
a) A duo so not strictly a band
b) The founder members and driving force behind the exceptional rock band ‘Soulweaver’
c) Have been making fine music together for 15 years and are celebrating that in style throughout 2016 with loads of rare material releases andnew remixes
d) As Rock Out play a set of classic rock / pop-rock songs like no other cover band you’ve ever heard!
e) Are guaranteed to give you a damn fine night out
f) Often throw in the odd Soulweaver original song here and there!

By request they did of course play a few Soulweaver classics during their sets, not only did they stand up well against the well-known sing along anthems but the transitions were almost unobservable, it just goes to show how good the Soulweaver material is and it’s no surprise why the Goodges / Soulweaver are regularly booked to play a lot of classic rock festivals both here in the UK and in Europe.
As they got going the pub rapidly filled with the pub’s regulars, rock fans, Weavers galore and of course the two birthday party groups, it was a damn fine evening of great music played to an exceptionally high standard, my only regret is that I had to leave slightly before the end in order to catch a train home but then again, so did Roger the birthday boy, albeit in the opposite direction but he had had a damn good time and that my friends is what it is, or should be, all about.
Rocking Out with The Goodges
Forgoing Colouryde and the Astronauts
And the mighty S*M*A*S*H
Or Cheezy & The Helmits
It was Roger’s birthday bash
So it was off and away to Biggleswade
To find the Pub called Rose
To meet up with Alex, Chris and Roger
Sometimes that’s just the way it goes
The Goodges were really rocking
So we all had a damn good time
They even played some Soulweaver songs
So that was mighty fine
The main thing was that it was time well spent
Among the best of friends
With great music being played anyway
And that’s how this poem ends!
