Yes, that energetic youngster jumping with his Les Paul on the 3songsbonn logo top left of the website really is Jason Barwick. It comes from an iconic Rockpalast Cologne gig in 2009. Joe Bonamassa pulled the plug on TV crews, and as a result upcoming Grimsby band The Brew got their whole set broadcast. The rest, as they say, is history. The boy has grown to a man and the hair to over his shoulders, but the energy level has remained constantly at a scale of ten from ten as Tuesday’s gig at The Harmonie proved.
Only ten days to go until one of the best guitar driven concerts for many a year begins. Performers at the Classic Rocknacht on the St Goarshausen Openair stage at Loreley. Set to appear on 14th June are, amongst others, Joe Satriani, Joe Bonamassa, ex-Whitesnake legend Bernie Marsden, The Brew, Julian Sas and Krissy Matthews.
It’s always worth checking which bands are pencilled in for The Crossroads Festival from WDR Televisions ‘Rockpalast’. The show that caught my eye this year was Saturdays bill which coupled Australian Rockers Dirty York with the opportunity to check on Grimsby’s finest Blues Rockers The Brew. Not surprisingly the music was every bit as hot as the weather on Saturday evening.
