Boom Boom Club review by Nigel Foster

The Nimmo Brothers and Troy Redfern Band – The Boom Boom Club (07/09/2014)

Last night the ramparts of Sutton United footbball Club, home to the Boom Boom Club were well and truly stormed and conquered by invaders from the West of the UK and north of the border in a night of high powered Blues Rock.

On a cool late summer evening the Troy Redfern power trio stormed in from Wales and began the assault with a furiously energetic set of rough hard edged Blues. Fair to say they were unknown to the hordes but welcomed with warmth from the off. Redfern looked every inch the travelling Blues man, hirsute with long black hair, Black Fedora and an array of six string weaponry slung low on the hips. The trio were completed by the imposing figures of Stuart McDonald on bass and Phil Greenhouse on drums. The band mixed confident originals with two or three standards delivering a hugely entertaining set from the bump and grind of Backdoor Hoodoo through to a barnstorming rendition of the Hendrix classic Voodoo Chile. Each song was shot through with hard edged fuzzed up riffs and some blistering solos. Redfern had an easy charm that combined with the powerful music got the evening off to a flying start and it was no surprise when Pete called the band back for an encore. Great to see Blues Harp legend Steve Smith join Troy too.

a battle in the Hay

Hay - Telegraph - Battle of the BandsLast week I received an email from Andy Fryers asking if The Troy Redfern Band would like to play at the Hay Festival Battle of the Bands. We had nothing else on that night and it was just 10 miles up the road so we thought 'why not'...

Well, we had a blast, fantastic stage, great sound crew, met some really cool bands and performers and much to our surprise won the damn thing too :)  Managed to get some good video clips from the show which are up on our youtube page... Here's some blurb from the local papers...

Last Thursday saw the first Telegraph Hay Festival Battle of the Bands, where six local bands and solo artists from diverse genres were invited to perform in front of three judges.  The judges were Bethan Elfyn from BBC Radio Wales; Jim Eliot, producer and song writer who has worked with Kylie Minogue, Ellie Goulding, and Olly Murs, amongst others; and Charlie Francis, a producer who has worked with the likes of REM, Traffic and Turin Brakes.

The six acts performed original material and gave stellar performances to a packed audience in the main festival stage.  After much deliberation, the judges announced the winners as the Kington-based Troy Redfern Band, owing to their dynamic, professional and high energy performance.  The band were invited back on stage to play a further three songs to an enthusiastic audience.
