Don't miss country rockers
OVER the past few years a lot of very good things have been written about Los Angeles country rockers Rose's Pawn Shop but we have had to wait a long time to see what the fuss has been about.
On this, their first ever gig in Britain, they showed us exactly what we have been missing.
From their opening song, Lone Rider, the five-piece band rocked the venue with slickly harmonised songs that had bluegrass as their base but thanks to a lot of musical skill wandered effortless around the musical genres taking in everything from West Coast rock to traditional folk.
Inevitably there were lots of songs like Ball Of Flames with its rockabilly-style slap bass introduction, but they were tempered by slower catchy numbers like the road song Pine Box and My Old Valentine.

And there are few bands that could get away with doing Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight and get the audience to sing along.
But as far as this packed audience was concerned Rose's Pawn Shop could do no wrong, there were people dancing to everything and the well-deserved chorus of "we want more" at the end was deafening.
"We plan to make this trip to the UK a regular thing," announced singer, songwriter and band founder Paul Givant. Make a note, you won't want to miss them when they come back to Bristol.
