Sidewinder [Blues Rock, 4 piece]
This was my first visit to the Wheatsheaf in Dunstable for some time. I was curious about Sidewinder after reading on Lemonrock they play vintage blues and rock. I arrived in plenty of time, well before the stated time the band were due to play and was impressed to see everything set up ready to go. The band were due to start at 9, and bang on 9 they started. The band kicked off with a ZZ Top number and played some great classics from some great bands. The second set was excellent this time the band starting off with a old classic from FleetwoodMac, Rattlesnake Shake. Their whole performance was littered with classic gems La Woman, Pride and Joy , Lets Work Together ect. It was quite refreshing to hear a band playing vintage tracks like these . The musicianship of the band is excellent, raw,energetic, driving with great interplay between the drums and guitar, the lead guitarist was excellent playing with great feel and sensitivity and who's talent shone through. I am glad I visited the Wheatsheaf last night, I shall look forward to visiting again and watching more live music.Sunday 23 September 2018

The Band are a Tight combo driven by a great drummer and lead Guitarist,great Vocalist and Bass man,that keeps the tempo up and Rocking!
Redz Bar is a compact intimate setting and really lends to the atmosphere!
