Yes, it's Feenstra but I've seen some great shows there - Walter Trout, Aynsley Lister, King King, The Strawbs, Buddy Whittington, Colin Blunstone, Chantel McGregor, It's A Beautiful Day and others I've forgotten.

It's a nice little venue providing great music for the good folks of Chislehurst, Sidcup, Bromley etc.

He puts on most of the same people he promotes at the Boom Boom Club in Sutton but that tends to get the biggest names.

Somebody seems to run a very Feenstra-type operation in Ruislip, if that's convenient to anyone.

Mainly tribute acts but Chantel McGregor is booked in November.

Saw Robert Randolph and the Family Band at the Brooklyn Bowl last night.

This was the third time I've seen them (plus one RR guest spot at the Beacon) after the Borderline in 2008 and Bush Hall (2010).

As usual, it was an instant party when this lot to take to stage - a non-stop two-hour mix of soul, funk, blues and pop (not so much gospel this time) with an audience of Govt Mule proportions. The on-stage chick dance, missing at the Bush Hall, was back and he invited a previously ebullient "geezer" onstage to play what turned out to be more than passable rhythm guitar for the rest of the set. Pre-planned? Planted? Who knows, but it was fun as was the mic being handed over to a surprisingly tuneful front-rower during a singalong.

Catch them on Later with Jools Holland tonight.

As for the Brooklyn Bowl.... Good News: the air con was turned down to Pleasantly Warm and the draught Sam Adams is still an - expensive - treat.

Bad News: not exactly bad but the BB and the O2 generally attract a very young, "dating" type audience. There is not nearly the same number of "old greys" which a similar gig would attract to, say, The Borderline or 100 Club and those who do venture east seem ill at ease.

This IS bad news: at Going Home time, there was about 20,000 Pharrell Williams, 2,000 Chic and a couple of hundred Robert Randolph fans trying to get into the tube station. The crowd control worked well and I caught (just) my last train from Waterloo but can I be bothered with the hassle and risk?

It will certainly make me more selective. I've already passed on the NMAS who I would probably have seen in central London and I'll check what is on at the O2 before booking in future. The complex is a great place with its eateries, music venues and cinemas but public transport after shows can be a pain.

Oh, and I saw Brian May at the Tate Britain in the afternoon. Not, surprisingly, on the roof but in the members' room!

Would like to have gone to that gig. glad you enjoyed it. I like the venue, I also like the fact that there isnt a sea of grey haired or bald folk in the audience.
I feel sorry for young bands when they look at the front row full of people old enough to be their granny or grandad.
But youre right about the public transport.. hopeless.

As I'm sure you will know, Al, the old grey hairs and baldies do a lot to support bands on the way up! Without them, there must be lots who would have packed it in by now.

Yes, long-term sustainable success requires a younger audience but the younger element are also possibly more fickle and likely to move on to other things.

An interesting discussion topic in its own right!

Last time I went to the O2 I took the speed boat from waterloo ... a lot quicker than the tube and you get a gin & tonic en-route ...

Anyone going to any of the Bluesfest Daytime Strollers at the RAH?

Tickets are twice the price of last year (£20 against £10) and the line-up is, with all due respect, not nearly as good.

Great idea! Come up with a format which is hugely popular and presumably broke even at worst, then &*%! it up regally.

The line-up for the main shows is scandalous too for a so-called Bluesfest: Gregory Porter, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Beth Hart/ Robert Cray and Sheryl Crow - Blues my arse, for the most part!

Last year's Daytime Strollers were where the Blues in Bluesfest were and this year, while the Blues content may be just as high, the artists are - to me - relatively unknown.

All that said, I may go to one as someone may surprise me (I'm an old retired bloke with nothing else to do!).

And then even if you are a fan of the non-blues artist (Costello for me) hike up the price to double what you would expect to pay. Top price is £130, I would expect to pay no more that £60-70 for him at RAH, given that I paid £45 for the Colston Hall last year and the Usher Hall in Edinburgh on Saturday is £45 top price. And Gregory Porter was only £25 in Bristol earlier this year (and well worth seeing, but oh, those prices......)

Mike Zito and The Wheel were excellent at the Beaverswood Club in Chislehurst last night.

I enjoyed it more than the couple of RSB shows I've seen. Jimmy Carpenter on sax was a great foil for Mike's guitar. Recommended if they pass your way (see dates above).

Sam Fish was fine in support too.

The last two times he played in England, he played a curtailed set due to illness the first time and the second time was just before he abandoned a European tour on health grounds. He has since cancelled a one-off show in Norway.

I'm not counting the O2 mini-set after the Muscle Shoals film premier, of course.

It's hard to know whether it will happen. I'm inclined to say it will but I certainly won't be there.
