Blues at the Woodlands Review 

Cool review from our gig at Blues at the Woodlands. Thank you Andy 

11th May – Big Wolf Band 

London may have their Werewolves but Birmingham have got one hell of a contender with the Big Wolf. 

They braved the nightmare M25 on a Friday night and only got held up by one hour, and turned in a not to be forgotten gig which left everybody breathless. 

A new name to the club, but the band from Birmingham fully deserve the many plaudits that they have been receiving. 

The Big Wolf Band treated a packed house to an evening of original rocking blues and soulful songs from their new CD Rebel's Story, all the lyrics having been written by Jonathan Earp. Jonathan on lead guitar and vocals and with great support from Tim Jones on drums, Mick Jeynes on bass and Paul Brambani on keyboards showed what a fine CD this is and what a versatile and talented band they are. 

Playing tracks from the CD, the tempo was a correct mix starting with ‘Heaven Has The Blues’ through to the title track ‘A Rebels Story’ and outstanding guitar solo on ‘Darkest Of My Days’ 

A superb cover of Freddie King's 'Have you ever loved a Woman' went down very well with superb solo's from Jonathan and Paul together with another Freddie King number 'Going Down' and Hendrix's 'Voodoo Child' set the seal on truly memorable evening. 

Such was the intensity of the playing and the tight knit the whole band produced, you know why they are in so demand for their powerhouse performances. Looking forward to their return in 2019
