The recently reformed and renamed Redhead Band played the popular Sunday evening spot at The Odds yesterday. Led by singer Kim Archer with Alex Luker on guitar, Chris Ball on drums and the talented multi-instrumentalist Graeme Chegwidden this time on bass and Keith Archer, sound engineer.
They ran swiftly through their set, I mean by going almost seamlessly from one song to the next. A nicely varied set covered songs by Fleetwood Mac, Blondie, The Doobie Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Adele, Tina Turner, to name just a few. Stand out numbers for me were, Midnight Oil's, Beds Are Burning, Roxy Music's, Love Is The Drug, lead vocal by Graeme and the 2016 smash hit by Rag'n'Bone Man, Human, with subtle atmospheric guitar sounds from Alex. Redhead's sound and tightness has much improved since we last heard them in the old band and they are playing with a lot more enthusiasm. Excellent improved playing in all departments particularly liked the sync between Graeme's bass guitar and Chris's bass drum. Great bass lines from Graeme and inspired drumming from Chris too, make a fitting backdrop for Alex's tasty guitar solos and Kim's soaring vocals. Of course singer Kim can never be accused of performing with a lack of enthusiasm, but even she exuded a sense of renewed vigour, coming off stage to encourage audience participation and putting her all into every song.
So it was a triumphant return to The Odds for Redhead!
