Ok its not like looking for new music talent at SXSW in Austin but the sun was shining brightly & Id never been to Bedlington before, so off me, Sid & Mel went. The Jumping Hot hardcore I suppose. On the agenda on Bank Holiday Saturday was catching some hot rockabilly country live music from Ireland & Scotland. Mons Wheeler & The Tone Kings were surprising playing an afternoon show & also their only show in the region. So, dancing was witnessed, some incredible guitar licks from Martin Bennett & a really good hard working band incorprating a right old vintage mix of 50’s rock n roll – hillbilly & pure falsetto vocals from Mons Wheeler. Unlike most, he never missed a note & would be an asset to say, Summertyne Festival or our Country Cantina …. watch this space folks
