Ilona & Friends - Wednesday 9th May - The Bedford, Balham

Rich and I had caught the end of Ilona's set supporting Bucket & Co a few months ago and she sounded really good. So, the opportunity of a few never before visited pubs around Wandsworth & Balham and a free show was one not to be turned down.

The support band - will need to look up their name! - were very pleasant and a decent crowd applauded warmly.

On that previously mentioned occasion at Raynes Park, Ilona had performed solo - here there was a full band. No surprise that I knew none of the material, but it was all very good with band and vocals excellent. We were lucky enough to be given a free 1 song charity CD afterwards  and the band were all easily accessible if you wanted a chat.

Found myself humming "Money's out the door, love's out the window" the next day.

Good enough that a return visit will definitely be on the cards!
