The band seemed to have gone their separate ways - both personally and geographically several years ago. Lead guitarist Stu remains from the previous version - the only member who appears to have been active musically since the band fell apart with other bands and solo acoustic performances keeping him busy.
For a variety of reasons only three members of the classic lineup are featured in this possibly 'for one night only' version of the band - drummer Jamie still keeping the beat at the back
Rich Elson rhythm guitarist 'Flash' Danny has moved over to take his place - also assuming some vocal duties. Danny also shared lead vocals originally on one of the band's best songs 'Running After You' - sadly missing from tonight's set.
Not surprisingly there are no new songs tonight, but the band have plenty of good stuff to pick from already from their three EPs - they had enough for a full album if only they had stayed together. You can still find some of them scattered online in various places.
PS: If you search my older blog posts you can find quite a few Vamps 'N' Gypsies gigs featuring the old lineup of the band....
Final band of the night are White Coast Rebels. If you like the heavier side of 80's rock then you will probably like this lot.
