And what more can I say of BBBV? Only that they improve performance after performance and that it is a real pleasure to again witness the craft of ELO violinist Mik Kaminski in a variety of musical styles and improvisations that one can clearly see him enjoying. Phil Bates' top notch guitar work effortlessly intertwined with Tina McBain's sublime vocals, particularly on tracks like "Motherless Children", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Why Worry" and "Midnight Blue" here in the home territory of the late great Kelly Groucutt. In summary, another great night of ELO and Beatles fused music, this time hosted by our friends at The Robin 2. It was also nice to spend a little time with fellow fans and some of my musical heroes. We really should support in numbers these talented musicians as they ply their trade and bring us the live music of The Beatles and the Blues with a certain blue violin!
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends The Beatles Blues and Blue Violin Project [BBBV] to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes.
