The Lee Aaron Band [Indie Pop / Rock, 4 piece]
Well, after seeing this band in Bracknell, we just had to see them again for more. Luckily we did not have to wait too long as they were playing the next night in Mr Bumbles in Camberley. OMG! - this band was certainly well loved here and they went down a storm. (Guys, you really rocked the place, literally!)
The atmosphere was electric and the fans were dancing on the tables all around us. They could not get enough of this band, all of whom are brilliant musicians, with every cover performed utter perfection.
As I write this review (over a month later) I still have the sound of the lead guitar in my head. Boy, he made that guitar talk! I'm not sure which lead guitarist he was, as you mention two that could be playing, and I am sorry but did not catch his name at the end of your gig because he certainly deserves a special mention.
One great song led to another, with the likes of 'Dakota' by Stereophonics; 'Sex on Fire' by Kings of Leon; 'Sweet Home Alabama' by Lynard Skynard and 'Ruby' by Kaiser Chiefs. All these to name but a few.
Lee, you have amazing talent for someone so young and you deserve to go far. Good Luck for the O2 later this year! Can't wait to see you again.

Thanks, it was a great night.
I came down to Ye Olde Swan to meet a few mates for a quiet beer before heading off to Slough for the night. We arrived just as the band were starting their second set and had only intended staying for a 'quick one' before leaving, but a soulful, then full-out rocky version of 'Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone', was so good we thought give it another couple of numbers before leaving. As it turns out, we didn't leave until kicking out time!
The Lee Aaron Band were 'full on', powering from one great song into another. The singer had the audience's attention the whole time and really involved them. The band played a brilliant covers of Kaiser Chief's, 'I Predict A Riot' and the whole pub was up and singing 'Sex on Fire' and chanting along to a rousing rendition of 'Chasing Cars'.
The set list also included numbers by Greenday, The Stereophonics and The Killer's, 'Mr Brightside', finishing off with the most amazing version of 'Won't Get Fooled Again' in which the drummer (Lee Aaron) played the most amazing drum solo I have ever seen anywhere let alone in a local pub!
The crowd wanted more and received two brilliant encores, of 'Funky Music' and 'I Feel Good', both performed with a funky feel.
If you like live music I recommend you come and see The Lee Aaron Band. They certainly know how to entertain and unlike a lot of cover bands they are fantastic at the Rock stuff & as equally at home playing Funk or Soul.
Burnham was certainly 'on fire' this Saturday. I will definitely be down to see this band when they are in the area again.

Thanks for that, we always love to play Ye Olde Swan it's a great venue with great staff and great customers who always are up for a good time. Hope to see you at our next gig, come and say hello and we will buy you a beer.
All our gigs are listed on Lemonrock.
What an amazing night... The band was on top form and played up to the crowd's every whim... We wanted more and we got it with bells on!
From the start we were dancing, we crooned along with the ever popular "Chasing Cars" and were impressed with the inclusion of a Green Day song ("When September Ends") we weren't expecting. By the time they did "Hey Jude" and "I've got a Soul but I'm not a Soldier" at the end there wasn't a person sitting down expect for Lee himself! I still have that song in my head 2 days later and can't wait to see them again...
Am pleased to see Mr Bumble already has them booked up for throughout next year! We loved the young guitarist and think he is another amazing talent. To top it all they are great people too, and took the time to talk to me after... We had an amazing time, thank you!

I have been going down to Mr Bumbles since they started having live music, I have seen some great bands but tonight they had a new band playing, The Lee Aaron Band. I arrived at 9pm to find the pub pretty full, the band started up 9.30 and from the first opening chords I knew we were in for a treat, the band steamed from one song to another, the crowd were going mad, there were people up on the tables dancing (I have never seen this kind of thing down at Bumbles before) this band really ROCKED with a capital R.
They put in a few sing-along numbers like Brown Eyed Girl, Sweet Home Alabama. This band are in a whole different league to any other band I have seen at Bumbles or anywhere else for that matter.
After a well earned 20 minute break the band came back on for the second set, and once again the place was rammed and even the hardcore smokers abandoned their ashtrays to watch the band. The second set was built up nicely with a couple of slow numbers to lull the crowd into a false sense of security then WHAMO they laid on the rock with Smoke on the Water, on to great versions of Ziggy Stardust, Summer of 69, The Snow Patrol sing-along one (can't remember the name). Basket Case had the whole pub jumping up and down, as did I Predict a Riot. They just kept the rock coming.
They finished with the Who's Won't Get Fooled Again, this gave the young drummer a chance to do his stuff, he played a great drum solo like I have never heard in a pub before - it was so fast his arms were like a blur.
The Encore was Don't Look Back in Anger (the whole place was on their feet singing & swaying).
The whole band was absolutely fantastic.
I would advise anyone who likes live music to check these guys out.
