The Voodoo Rooms is packed again for tonight’s gig. If it keeps going like this, the Edinburgh Blues Club is going to need a bigger venue. Due to circumstances beyond my control I’m late arriving, so I’m only just in time to catch the last song from Lights Out By Nine. Sorry to have missed you gents, but I can say that you cooked up a storm on ‘Digging On James Brown’, and I liked the sound of the horns!

Rhythm section Lewis Fraser on drums, and Grigor Leslie on bass, underpin the front men with subtlety and feeling. Leslie in particular brings some roll to the rock, as it were, while Fraser adds some nice harmonies for good measure. They’re a band who write good material too, such as the funky ‘The Dance’ and the good time set closer ‘Slave To The Rhythm’. If they can focus their writing even more on their strengths, there could be a whole lot more potential for Gerry Jablonski and the Electric Band to mine.
