White Light [Covers 50s - present, 4 piece]
As an entertainment secretary your constantly recommended acts from other members and White Light came to me highly recommended. Firstly it was refreshing to see a band who were set up and ready to go way before the time given and Peter the lead singer kept me informed of any possible delays so a very professional outfit even before they had struck a note!.
As for the gig well it was a small crowd as there were a lot of out members at another venue for a 60th but the size of the crowd did not deter White Light from putting on one brilliant night for those of us that were there.
A fantastic band fronted by easily the most energetic front man make one amazing band a great selection of songs each played with the same enthusiasm as the last one and all with a nice dollop of humour.
If you want a great night out then go find out where White Light are playing you will not be disappointed .
Thank you for making a quiet night feel like a packed out night gentlemen.Pete, Monday 30 September 2019
Thanks for the kind words - we certainly had some fun together! Wonderful to meet everyone at the Club and to be treated like "family". We have some great footage of your members dancing like crazy that will inevitably end up on Facebook at some point. Expect everyone to turn up in their freshly Googled new gold shoes next week!
This was my 1st of 2 Farnborough gigs that night, I managed to catch most of White Light's 1st set. Pub usually stages solo and duo acoustic acts, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the full quartet tonight. Instantly obvious White Light is a fully experienced group. I was immediately impressed by Peter the powerfully voiced frontman, whose energy & humour seems limitless, and who tonight also played synth fills & a tambourine. Paul on drums is a powerhouse player, excellent timekeeping and I especially liked his fills which incorporated snare, toms and BD patterns. Simon's guitar playing is very melodic (if for some songs a gutsy/aggressive style is needed) & his solos are strictly to the point.....no ego trips allowed here! Dave on bass holds the dependable pattern, some songs have a walking bassline, others more a single note pattern. 3 backing voices. The equipment we saw is all top quality: DW drums, Fender guitar & bass, Yamaha synth, RCF PA speakers, good and especially clear sound from the guitar & bass amps.......the overall sound balance was right. Plus a decent set of stage lights, makes all the difference. Good song ordering as well, different artists' songs had themed connections. Their 1st set was almost entirely up tempo hits, from 1960s to 2000s, & which our audience really liked. Highly recommended group, ideal for functions & parties, & great entertainers. I'm at their return gig at this lovely pub on Saturday 30 December.Monday 13 November 2017
Thanks for coming along and sharing your comments (and doing research to find out the band members names!). Looking forward to seeing all at the pre-NYE gig.
When I discovered this band I thought they were great. So I booked them. Since then I couldn't wait for them to appear at our club. Then they did.....
I was not disappointed. First class entertainment in every way. Fantastic evening and I can't wait to have them back!
Thanks Peter & Co. For such a great night.Sunday 5 March 2017
