Get Ready To Rock  2006

The Great British R&B Festival 2006

Friday, 25 August 2006 - Colne 2006 - The classy John O'Leary Band opened the festival on the International Stage on Friday with a superb harp / guitar led funky blues set. A founder member of Savoy Brown all those years ago, John has the musical stature to harness the superb Duane Allman style guitar playing of Jules Fothergill, alongside Roger Inniss funky bass lines and keyboard player Jools Grudgings' telling embellishments. Particularly impressive was the hard hitting funk of Black Cat Bone, and the reflective Who's Been Talking..............With over three thousand people in for the show, this hospitable Lancashire town should have made enough for a repeat four days of musical oblivion next year.
