Review: Beer R&B Festival, Devon

by Sam Kelly on January 5th, 2011

The Station House line up consisted of Sam on drums (of course) Paul on keyboards and vocals, Spy on bass, Jerome on percussion and Tony on guitar and vocals, although they all had a good sing-along when the song dictated it. They are all renowned musicians in their own right, but coming together in Station House means they can do what they love and that is making music. They are more funky nowadays and you either like it or if you’re a purist you don’t. I like it. They opened with an instrumental just to get your juices flowing. Then they went into “Yolanda”.  Later “You upset me” featured Tony on vocals, the acoustics of a big old community hall didn’t allow his more subtle tones to come through, but he played a mean guitar throughout the sets. “Crosscut” and “Killing Floor” had the crowd up on their feet. “Lovely Day” was a pre-cursor to their fabulous “Treat A Dog” and to end the night they encored with the sensational “People Say”. The guitars of Paddy and Burt of The Walk Hards joined in to everyone’s delight, and rapturous applause.  An excellent end to the first night of the Festival.
