Caught Live (6): The Trevor Burton Band @ Stafford 29/06/14

#728: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Whilst the masses were busy watching Glastonbury or the 2014 World Cup on TV rooted to their armchairs, yours truly had the great pleasure of travelling the eighteen odd miles to Stafford to witness the latest gig by The Trevor Burton Band at the impressive de facto leading music venue in the town: The Grapes. A healthy collection of onlookers gathered on the night of Sunday 29th June to hear another astonishing performance of top class Rhythm and Blues by the co-founder of The Move and his two equally talented cohorts Pez Connor [Bass/backing vocals] and Bill Jefferson [Drums].
It is is difficult to convey in mere words in this, my sixth review of the band, how this guitar maestro impresses at each and every gig and how good this tight trio really are. The travesty is that, for many local, national and international lovers of his genre of music, Trevor Burton has somehow managed to remain firmly under the radar being often unmentioned and, sadly, unrecognised by the media who should really know better. ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] is pleased and proud to give Trevor Burton [and his Band] the attention and coverage they richly deserve.

Their set on this occasion included their own interpretations of blues standards including "Sunshine Of Your Love""Down The Road"; a superbly reconstructed "Heartbreak Hotel"; an amazing "Hey Joe"; and Trevor's very own "Down Down Down".

Trevor Burton Band gigs coming up include: Friday 11th July @ The Swan, Brewood, Friday 15th August @ The Queen's Head, Wolverley and Saturday 16th August @ Katie Fitzgerald's, Stourbridge. Further details can be found in the latest ELOBF Gig Guide. Find out more about The Trevor Burton Band via their official web site thus:
