Radio Bean Birthday Party Part 3 With Sundown, Colin Clary, Brattleboy Choir, And Bill Mullins On November 7, 2015
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got back from round three at the Radio Bean birthday party. It’s almost time to go there for real.
I walked in and Mickey Western was on. He was playing with a cool drummer, Eric Preacher on electric guitar and Malcolm Sanders on violin. I walked in on the last note, so missed the whole set.
Eric and the drummer stayed on stage and were joined by a keyboard player and a bass player and called themselves Sundown. The first song had a rocking jazz fusion sound with a stinging guitar. The second had a slow moody start and built into a nice almost cacophonous jam before easing off into the end. It was quite nice.
Up next Colin Nicholas Clary sand and played electric guitar and was joined by David on bass. They opened with The Night Syd Barret Died and I just loved the many Burlington music references. They played four more fun poppy rocky songs with enjoyable visual lyrics.
Brattleboy Choir followed and were just outstanding. The first song began with just vocals and keys then the guitar and drum came in and rocked it hard. The chorus was Step To The Left Step To The Right and I really liked the song. After that the keyboard played picked up the bass and they jammed out a nice rocking groove. I’ve got to check out their music soon.
Bill Mullins followed and was joined by Kirk Flanagan on bass and the debut of Lowell Thompson on drums. They played a trio of rock songs with a country edge and a super cool vibe, They sounded great and sang songs that said things like “on the run into the heart of the sun”, and “rewind, maybe I should”. Those guys are such pros!
OK, time to go settle in for a while. Lots of great music is about to happen!!
