The Experience played last night at the club. A loyal crew of freaky-dancing friends and fans turned out to join in the fun and this excellent band have rarely sounded and looked better. The sound they created was a monumental wall of swirling, soaring blues improvisation by guitarist Lee Allison and bassist Aaron Brown around Mike Neagle’s funky drumming. It was a tremendous pleasure to work with such a professional and enthusiastic group of musicians. I learned they will be doing some recordings at a local studio soon and I hope to bring news of that as I get it.

I think Havienda needs a proper photographer. These snaps are rather grainy and blurred, rather like the ones of a previous bands night, due to the limitations of my compact camera. Anyway, here are the best of the bunch.
