An absolutely immense edition of K’s Choice at Sound Food and Drink on an August Monday evening.
Sincere thanks to all those who played, you were all magnificent and keep K’s Choice at the top of our game!
On open mic we were treated to great sets from the very young Shea Michael Doolin, the very not so young “Herringbone” John Hall (sorry John!), the Nashville lovin’ Izzy Ryder, and Andy Knight with a couple of well chosen covers.
All were excellent and will be invited back to play for us again.
Our featured guests on the night were:
Leanne Griffiths with a strong set of heartfelt and very personal original material – just a hint of Alanis Morisette I’d say….
Katie Mcloughlin with her very distinctive and powerful vocals and a very individual acoustic guitar style. She played an arresting set of enchanting original songs.
Gary Gardner, a K’s Choice favourite whose songs are becoming well known around the Liverpool acoustic circuit.
Apollo, an acoustic four piece band, featuring Pete on guitar, Luke on percussion, Dan on keys and the Tom on lead vocals, with a wonderful set of lively covers that quite literally caused some of the female audience members to pass out!
So many performers that your host Derek King had an easy night of it and didn’t get to play!
Thanks everyone for playing, thanks to the audience for listening, and special thanks to Jules Bennett for running the best darn music cafe-bar on the planet!
Peace & love xx
