Music City by the Sea - Stephen Kalinich

Good Vibrations

Glen Richardson, Tom Arnold and Steve Wrigley are all very talented musicians. Glen Richardson's vocals are very assured and accurate and have a rich tone. On the keyboard, he would from time to time add a Jerry Lee Lewis riff to a Beach Boys number. For me, Tom Arnold's piano accordion added a new dimension to the Beach Boys oeuvre. I wish I'd requested Sloop John B.

Charlotte Cooper treated us to her single, Lucky Guy, and some tracts from, I imagine, her forthcoming debut album. She is a very competent artist.

But the whole evening had been put together at short notice. It was very informal, very relaxed, and great fun, descending at the end into a traditional Come-All-Ye of Good Vibrations.

Tom Arnold is back in the Greys on September 17 th as part of Ungagged.
