Trailer Trash Tremblers + Quireboys concert review
The Rock Temple, Kerkrade
Supported by Trailer Trash Tremblers, Quireboys came down to the Rock Temple for some old school rock n' roll.The opening band looks like it's called... Influenced by Johnny Cash and David Allan Coe, but (southern) rocking it up more than those classics, they delivered an entertaining set of songs.
By the way: next to the regular merch, they had "sex with the drummer" for sale. I'm not sure it's such a good deal, since they had to drop the price of that particular item from 50 to 40 EUR...
Quireboys opened with the phrase "This is rock n' roll", and that's exactly what they brought to the table!
Spike's voice and moves, accompanied by some brilliant guitar work, really took the night up a level or two.
Classic songs ("7 o'Clock") as well as stuff from the latest cd Halfpenny Dancer ("Mona Lisa" taking my interest most of all, "Have A Drink With Me", "There She Goes Again") were swung at the crowd.
The set was packed with killer songs like "This Is Rock N' Roll", "Searching", "Hey You", "I Don't Love You Anymore", "Sweet Mary Ann", "Lorraine Lorraine", "Late Nite Saturday Call" and "Sex Party" in the encore bit, the list is impressive...
The place held a decent amount of people, proving that the Rock Temple is moving in a good direction. It was nice to see the band mingling after the show as well, talking to the crowd and turning this eve into one to remember.
