Roadhouse at Danny's Bar, Esquires, Bedford, 02 10 16

Yes, it's that time of year again and as I'm otherwise engaged next Sunday when Roadhouse play the "Blues at The Red" session at the Red Lion in Stevenage there was no way I was going to miss this one, not my dead PC, not Railtracks planned engineering work and not cows on the line that effectively killed off the already savagely reduced rail service going North from Stevenage was going f to stop me!

Sunday 2nd October 2016 Roadhouse at Danny’s Bar, Esquires, Bedford

Sunday was the day my that my trusty old PC
Committed the electronic version of hara-kiri 
Rail Track had ‘planned engineering’ work on the line
Northbound trains were not stopping at Hitchin or Arlesey, OK fine
And anyway even the reduced services were in chaos
Due to a cow on the line, but did any of that stop us?
The Fellowship of the Stick, stick together
That’s how we survive
The lovely Peter had elected to drive
So he picked me up just before three
Then Chris and then Kevin
And we were off to see, Roadhouse 
At Danny’s Bar in Esquires in Bedford
A free gig too, something we can easily afford!

Corona Bunnies, it must be those guys from FoTs
It was good to catch up with Roadhouse and the crew
And all those good people from CRF and Skeggy as you do
Once again Roadhouse were simply superb
A band that has to been seen playing live and heard
Playing songs from the new ‘City of Decay’ album
And a load of old classic songs too just had to be done
They were on tip top form and we all had fun
The band, the punters, the bar staff, yes everyone

Roadhouse i full swing
And we stayed behind after the gig
To give the band a hand to pack up the rig
And to have a drink together and some catch up time
Well, that’s a Roadhouse gig for you
All in all it was pretty damn fine.

I actually managed to 'capture' the whole band!

The lovely ladies, Sarah and Mandie

Danny & Gary giving it some, and how!
So, if you just happen to be in the area, Sunday 9th October, The Red Lion, Stevenage, 8pm, you could do no worse than to truck along and see one of the finest and hardest working Americana Blues Rock bands ever, the wonderful ROADHOUSE.
