We are very pleased to announce that our new permanent Bass Player is Steve Hart. Steve is an exceptionally talented player and very nice guy, who has performed in lots of bands over the years. One of his music idols is John Entwistle and he even met the music legend! Steve loves our music and can’t wait to become Lord John Band’s new John Entwistle! We’d also like to say thank you for Richard Hughes who has been depping for us all this year. He is a great player but can’t commit to the Lord John Band full time. A big THANK YOU from the entire band to Richard for the fantastic support and musicianship he has brought to the band! Richard will be back to dep at some gigs, so watch this space!! Keep the faith!
This is the second time I've seen Lord John and they really are a great live band. Excellent musicians that produce a powerful sound, and two very good vocalists. They did Weller proud with great versions of Sunflower and Wild Wood, and The Jam classic The Butterfly Collector (the B-side of Strange Town for those that still remember 7" vinyl!). Plenty of other well known favourites are covered from The Who, The Small Faces, The Beatles. A great night out and thoroughly recommended. I will Keep The Faith ;) - Mark Butler
Our third time seeing this great Mod covers band who get better each time. They really upped their game for this, their biggest and most prestigious gig yet. Kicking off with a great version of The Who's "I can't explain" they soon had the attention of a well packed room, continuing with covers of both classic tunes like The Small Faces' "Tin Soldier" but mixed with tunes like "Ghosts" by The Jam, so not a set consisting just of the obvious tunes thus making a good mixture.
There was also more diversity with some great R&B and Northern Soul tracks, so something for everyone to dance to, and many did!
They are a tight band, Paul is a well established lead vocalist fronting, the others all more than capable in their various roles, resulting in a sound that is slick and professional which along with their excellent set choice create a wonderful atmosphere you just can't help but want to get on the dance floor!
They finished, as they started, with another Who classic, "My Generation" leaving everyone with a lasting impression of a very entertaining evening and judging by all the reactions afterwards, wanting more! Looking forward to seeing them again soon, well done and thank you guys! Mark Ide, Sat 30th Mar 2013
Hi, we’ve had this fantastic review in from Mark Ide, a true Mod! Cheers Mark, keep the faith!
We had a fantastic night at the Dukes Head Saturday 2nd February, being a couple of the mods that turned up. Our second time seeing only their third gig, but even better than our first time, which was excellent. They played both timeless 60s hits of The Who, Small Faces, The Kinks etc mixed with classic and a few less well known but still superb hits of the Jam as well as some R&B tracks, as good as Dr Feelgood etc if not better! Even if you are not a mod, you can't help but dance to the great music, played with passion and enthusiasm. It's fantastic that there is a fairly local band that plays mod music, plays it well and is on our wavelength! Keep it up chaps, keep the faith, hope to catch you at Jagz! Mark Ide
