Spread the love

Every Tuesday evening, rain or shine, finds me eagerly awaiting the doors to the Comrades Club in Coulsdon to swing open for another instalment of the Tuesday Night Music Club. It’s a ritual I’ve cherished for the past decade, surrounded by fellow music enthusiasts, where even if the lineup doesn’t perfectly match my tastes, the camaraderie and live experience always make for a memorable night. But when a band like Big River takes the stage, it’s nothing short of spectacular.

Having witnessed Big River’s electrifying performances on multiple occasions, their recent show was yet another testament to their prowess. Since its inception in 2016, Big River has been a beacon in the blues-rock tradition, drawing inspiration from legends like Bad Company and Free. Their journey has been marked by milestones, from gracing renowned stages like The 100 Club in London to earning spots at prestigious festivals such as A New Day and Planet Rockstock.

Their latest lineup, featuring lead vocalist Adam Barron, drummer Joe Martin, bassist Simon Gardiner, and guitarist Damo Fawcett, delivered a night of unpretentious blues rock that had the audience captivated from start to finish. Adam Barron’s charisma and the band’s effortless interaction with the crowd created an infectious energy that filled the room.

While their set predominantly featured original material, their choice of classic covers was impeccable, showcasing both their musical versatility and reverence for the genre’s roots. As their final notes echoed through the venue, the audience erupted into thunderous applause, prompting an encore that left everyone wanting more.

With multiple festivals lined up for 2024, including a return to the Cavern Freehouse on March 29th, it’s clear that Big River’s momentum shows no signs of slowing down. As they continue to forge their path with unwavering passion and musical prowess, one thing is certain: wherever they go, an unforgettable experience awaits.
