Chas & Dave - Chicago Rock Cafe, Sutton - Wednesday 5th December
Yes indeedy, Charles and David - live in Sutton on a Wednesday evening! Now before I hear you scoffing, let's just say this was actually really good fun. I hadn't been to Chicago's for years, but it had a nice friendly crowd and felt more like a weekend. Everyone was in the mood for a Cockney sing-along and that's what we got for about an hour and 10 minutes.
Quite a late start (10:30) which gave us time to watch the Geordies grab a deserved draw with the Gooners. The set list was pretty much what you'd expect, with all the hits played. They are also the only artist I've seen (I think) who have had just piano, bass and drums. We were trying to work out how old they are... a bit of surfing suggests Chas and Mick are 64 (Mick looks older!) and Dave is 62.
