|Pete Kent thrilled a healthy Wednesday night audience at The Robin 2|
|Megan Reece delivered a stunning support set|
First up on the night was provided by Megan Reece with a little help from her friends Chris Nicholls [guitar]; Rian Harris [backing vocals] and Jen Lali [also backing vocals]. And, with an impressive roster of her own compositions and some nice covers, Megan more than entertained those assembled with her own articulate versions of "Finally" [Ce Ce Peniston], "Jealous Heart" [Les Paul & Mary Ford] and "I'd Rather Go Blind" [Etta James] as well as her very own "Dreams", "I Don't Think So", "We're Here Again" and the rather classy "Unheard".
And what of Pete Kent? The Wolverhampton based guitarist delivered a varied and, indeed, stunning set of his unique interpretations of songs by such wide ranging artistes as The Beatles, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Who, The Kinks, Blue Oyster Cult and Level 42. Add to that his own material from "Sands Of Time" including the title track and "Postman's Knock", a TV theme medley and an astonishing duet with fifteen  year old Tom Rushton entitled "Tamacun" [Rodrigo y Gabriela] and you can well imagine an amazing night of guitar craft. I counted at least twenty  different songs played by Pete during the evening with my personal faves being his wonderful cover of "The Way It Is" [Bruce Hornsby & The Range], "Don't Fear The Reaper", "Eleanor Rigby" and [naturally] "Something About You" [recently endorsed by none other than Mark King]. All in all, an intimate and highly enjoyable gig!
