Devizes Festival: The Untouchables at the Bear's Cellar Bar
Updated 8:47am Monday 30th June 2014 in News
The Untouchables' free Fringe event featured unbelievable Chicago Blues in the vein of Bo Diddley and Willie Dixon, with Keith Parker’s harp playing swooning you right into the US of A!
Renditions of their Leave the light on, Just one Dance, and Do the double dip boogie got everyone dancing on the spot as over 100 packed the venue to a sweaty, heady fever.
Peter Ellison’s flick off-beat guitar picks up every note, especially upping chords in Just one dance, to the exact sync with Keith Parker’s mouth-organ, infecting audiences to jive exhaustedly.
Paul Green’s string bass pounds the rhythm out with gentle subtlety to keep the band on beat on Don’t keep me waiting, while Malcolm Butland taps those heavy tin-rustle drums with astounding perfection.
It was a great Fringe night that left the punters buzzing on leaving, congratulating the charming Keith P, who loved the plaudits!
Catch them on a regular basis at The Blues Kitchen on Thursdays in Camden, and treat yourself to a night of pure blues heaven.
