#1,178: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good friend and occasional gig buddy Colin Martin recommended an interesting new tribute band to ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) just before the fantastic Judie Tzuke gig at The Robin 2 the other week.
10ccLO are based in the North East and will soon be spreading their wings further afield throughout the UK with what promises to be an entertaining set featuring the songs of ELO and 10cc. Yours Truly KJS thinx that it's a wonderful idea to combine the music of Jeff Lynne and Graham Gouldman et al into one show being as many ELO fans also follow the fortunes of 10cc (and vice versa). You may also be aware that Jeff Lynne's ELO Musical Director Mike Stevens has also been touring with the current 10cc touring band since 2002.
10ccLO are: Chris Walton (Lead vox) ~ Kevin Jager (Drums/vox) ~ John Lewis (Keyboards/vox) ~ Roy Clinton (Bass/vox) and Paul Boydell (Guitars/vox). You can find out more about 10ccLO via their official web sites thus:
