5 Things- This Week in Staines

1.

See Rough Justice at O’Neills, Woking

Rough Justice

Rough Justice at O’Neills, Woking, Saturday Apr 5th 2008 9PM

…- Berkshire Live Aid – Asian Tsunami Relief Concert –

“One of the highlights of the marathon 10 hour concert was Rough Justice. Very much the elder statesmen of the event, their

performance of half a dozen classic rock songs captivated the young crowd and showed them how it should be done.”

Kate Michaels – The Slough informer

– Back Street Heroes Magazine –

“I thought the days of pub rock were well and truly over, how wrong I was! I can safely say that you can teach an old dog new tricks! I saw Rough Justice back in 1998 when they headlined at one of the Celtic Warriors Bikers Rallies where they
performed to a crowd of over 2000, back then they were great. You know what? They still are! They definitely moved with the times, expect numbers from Franz Ferdinand, U2 & the Kings of Leon as well as classics from Queen, The Who & AC/DC. Hog (lead singer) & Caesar (guitar) the original members, have brought in an excellent guitarist (Mike Stoner) & top drummer (known as the Mighty Mammal).They’re bigger & better than ever! “

Barry Browning – Back Street Heroes Magazine

The Super Sound of Classic Soul

West London’s Soul Disciples came together late in 2005 with the express wish of bringing the Classic Soul sounds of the 60’s & 70’s to the dancefloors of Britain. The soulful voice of Miss Clare “Bubbles” Moloney, combined with the authentic soul sound of the SD band has to be witnessed to be believed.

The Soul Disciples constantly strive to instill their performances with the spirit and
skill which made soul music of the 60’s & 70’s so exciting.
The SD’s have found themselves in the enviable position of having an
8-piece line-up which combines experience, virtuosity, personality & good looks (?!)All wrapped up with a shared love of Classic Motown, Atlantic, Stax &
Northern Soul.
