Goodnight Tonight: Band On The Runn

#482: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS was saddened today to hear the news from Craig Whale that ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommended artiste Band On The Runn had decided to call it a day after two years. I had the great pleasure of seeing this talented and unique local band at six gigs between June 2011 and April 2012 at four venues in the West Midlands of England and on each occasion Craig, Adam Willetts, Ian Hammond and Dave Cottle delivered a professional and energised tribute to the whole musical career of Sir Paul McCartney.
The good news is that Craig and Adam will continue to gig as The BeatBack Brothers with Ian and Dave also carrying on with The Lemuns. Yours Truly KJS will truly miss this band. The aforementioned sextet of ELOBF gig reviews are listed below for you to peruse and also to provide a lasting record of a really good tribute band:

Caught Live: Band On The Runn @ The Goodrich Club 17/06/11

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) wishes Craig, Adam, Ian and Dave all the very best in their respective future musical projects.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 16-Jan-2013
