A great crowd and a buzzing atmosphere witnessed The Casino Allstars put on a magnificent show for Lee at The Imperial in Stockport. Standing room only as the crowd packed the place out, but they still managed to dance in what small spaces they could find. It’s been a while since we were on home turf here at The Imperial where we rehearse every Wednesday or Thursday night. Lee the land lord has been such a good friend over the years and always bends over backwards to accommodate the bands need when asked. So it was extra special to fill the place for him and his lovely staff. We played out latest 3 new numbers, SLICED TOMATOES / JUST ANOTHER HEARTACH / IF YOU ASK BECAUSE I LOVE YOU for the first time in Stockport and they went down tremendous. Chris Stevens (Keys) has made such a big difference with his style of play enhancing the brass section with Keith (The Wizard). Then we have the ever so cool AC on bass guitar with Big Al (Lead Guitar) & Graham Lawrence (Drums) putting together a sound that make you wonder where the orchestra is hiding. Sarah was excellent with her vocals and yours truly sang from the heart which is the only way, all making The Casino Allstars the best Northern Soul band around.
