Danny & Ben - Friday 25th January - Shaw Theatre, London


After the success of their previous tour, Danny & Ben return for a second installment of their chat, stories and music. The venue - a very pleasant small theatre near Euston - was full and we got there early enough to secure a good unreserved seat.

The format was similar to last time - lots of funny stories from "the road" (most still involving Harry James, Thunder's drummer!), a few cringeworthy puns and jokes and some excellent musical interludes. This time around there were less covers and more Thunder songs and a good time seemed to be had by all. It being the London show, I think we got a couple of extra songs compared to the rest of the tour.

At the end of the evening I purchased the new CD from the nice girl at the merchandise stand. We then popped into the pub next door for a nightcap and felt VERY old! Must have been student night!
