B-RUDER JAM AT THE GRIST MILL, LEAMINGTON SPA

Quite enjoyed my first live music for a while at The Grist Mill in Leamington Spa where the new landlord is keen to get the pub back on the Leamington live music scene, last night Thursday 24th July was what was billed as a B-ruder Jam and featured several artist spots, young duo Wesley and Dan started the ball rolling and it was great to see fabulous guitarist Chris Jones play a short blues set and loved his different take on the classic 'Crossroads'.
Plenty of variety on offer with rap, ska and levellers style indie folk rock all making an appearance, the night attracted a young, lively crowd and hopefully the live music at the Grist Mill will really take off, just a shame there was no real lighting on the performers as it would have been good to see what was going on a bit more and of course I would also have a few photos to show you, but all in all a good night with a friendly atmosphere and interesting sounds.
