The Boneshakers have surpassed themselves again with a brand new, amazing promo video set in two of their favourite venues, the Tyne Bar, Ouseburn, Newcastle and the Riverside, South Shields.
News travelled fast as Face Book teemed with links and shares when the promo was first posted.
And the manager of Houghton Comrades Club wrote a splendid review of their recent gig there on the Boneshakers' Face Book page. Here it is:
"The Boneshakers with guest guitarist Mickey Crystal played before a disappointing thin crowd at Houghton Comrades on 30th March. It was the first time the band had played for us, although Mickey is an old friend; playing a solid bluesy set the band were excellent, and all the comments from the folk there were along the lines of how much talent was on stage and what folk were missing. Running through blues standards and more modern stuff, we heard tracks from B.B. King through to ZZ Top with little detours calling in to visit Rory Gallagher, Cream, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and Free. We were treated to the best lick swapping I've heard since the Buffalos started up on B.B. King's 'The Thrill is Gone', a truly sublime performance between 2 guitarists with nothing to prove, but who had a genuine feel for the music they played. The whole band came across as a fully integrated unit doing what they loved and giving all they had, a contender for best gig of the year come Christmas."
How's that for an accolade?
If you've not seen the promo video yet, here's the link to fantastic footage that'll show you just how far the fabulous Boneshakers have come since the birth of this superb band just under eighteen months ago. Astounding!
