Caught Live (3): Band On The Runn @ The Tackeroo 20/01/12
#296: Hello ... Hello... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS ventured out last night (Friday 20th January) to go see one of those local bands in the ELO and Beatles universe whom I truly enjoy promoting and hearing Band On The Runn, a band (ironically!) who have previously featured on ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) several times thus:
Band On The Runn are Craig Whale, Ian Hammond, Adam Willetts and Dave Cottle and last night they performed a tremendous set list at the likeable Tackeroo venue at Hednesford near Cannock in tribute to the whole musical career of Sir Paul McCartney with a specific focus on his time with Wings. I was joined in the audience yesterday with Pete Dicks (see above) - founder and proprietor of the long running worldwide broadcasting phenomenon known as Beatles & Beyond Radio. We were joined by Peter March (a fellow regular listener) and all three of us were mightily impressed by this relatively new band and the degree of professionalism and accuracy that they produced recreating the 50 year career of Sir Paul McCartney live on stage. Highlights (for this writer) were "The Long And Winding Road", "My Love" and "C Moon", amongst many others.
