Dave, Conny and the band Dave Cousins and Conny Conrad played a storming one-off gig in the NPL's cricket pavillion.
Dave came in to bat first with a short solo set, treating us to some early Strawbs songs like The Man Who Called Himself Jesus which he hadn't played live for ages. Dave Cousins
Conny Conrad He then made way for Conny to play a few of his songs...
... with his band Dark Ocean. Dark Ocean
Eric Young Their bass player is Eric Young...
... who combines with drummer Mark Coughlan to make an excellent rhythm section. The band were really tight and rocked hard... Mark Coughlan
Conny ... but even with Conny playing passionately they were always melodic, never harsh.
After a drinks break, Dave and Conny opened the second innings alone with some acoustic songs. Dave and Conny
Conny on acoustic guitar And Conny can play those tender melodies too.
Finally, the band joined in for a rousing finale, bowling us all out with a storming version of The Call To Action. Dave, Conny and the band rock on
Thank you Thanks to all the musicians for an electrifying night's music.
