The Oddfellows Arms, Hemel Hempstead [Pub]
Yes, Scandal back at the odds once again, (we can never get enough). I've been privileged to see the band on many occasions and at many venues and I can honestly say that each time they just get better and better. Anna has brought a new sound and songs to the band, giving a much wider breadth of music to the gig. Jim, as always, brings his own party atmosphere with him, where it comes from I don't know, but it's infectious. The old favourites where there, Nut bush, jump and Play that funky music but the band have been busy and there were new songs as well. Madness were there as always. So if the credit crunch has you feeling bit down then all you need to do is join the ever growing Scandal army. So what are you waiting for! Every gig is New Years eve, you won't be disappointed.

What a great band!
Great choice of songs and all well played.
Stand out songs were Dreadlock Holiday / Tears Of Clown / River Deep Mountain High.
Anna & Jimi really engage the crowd and make the gig fun.
Anna complained of a sore throat... Well all I can say is she sounded great out front especially on river deep.
Big shout out to the bass player who gives this band their great drive... What a player!
My first time at the oddfellows and have to say this looks to be shaping up to be a great live music venue... My only comment would be to move the tables away from the dance floor as we needed more room to dance to Scandal!
Looking forward to the next gig I can get to...

Thanks for your review Scandal always go down well here at the Odds , great band, great musicians. Thanks
Make no bones about it this band have just about every thing you could wish for in a band. And they are such a nice group of people. The music age span is only overtaken by the diversity of there musical taste, you can see that every one in the band has there own taste but as a truly professional band should do they somehow manage to amalgamate all of that musical energy to make one fantastic sound. Yes Danni is great Gordon is great Dave is great and so on and so on but put them all together :- well I love them , "i play in quite a successful band on the local circuit and when I'm not playing I try and get to so gravity so why don't you do the same...

I can't think of a better way to start my weekend off - this band is fantastic! I love every song they play from "Billy Jean" to "Valerie" - truly a great night had by all.
We have been fans of this band for a long time, and I can honestly say they always entertain you whilst enjoying it themselves, and this shows in their music.
They are all very talented people who enjoy what they do, and always have a good time.We have booked them to play at our wedding this summer.

Absolutely fantastic, great band, brilliant music which brought back loads of fond memories with various songs ranging from 60's to the present day!
Loved the versions of Love Shack to Mr Blue Sky.... Scissor Sisters' "Take your mama out" and of course not forgetting dear Michael's... "Billy Jean"!
A fantastic night - I met a lot of real nice people very friendly and welcoming crowd... the atmosphere was electric... so much so that I now follow this band as often as possible.
So if you feel like a real good night out take a leaf out of my book and enjoy! Keep up to date with the dates on Lemonrock and come along and let your hair down!
