Gig Review // Ramble Gamble + Support

The Lincoln Imp presents Ramble Gamble, Colleen’s Fancy and Johnny and the Rocket.

 A fun time was had by everyone in attendance, as Ramble Gamble headlined a three band show at the Lincoln Imp on Friday 19th May 2017.

First up were local newcomers, Johnny and the Rocket, who despite only being together since September, appeared to put on a pretty solid performance.

Performing cover versions of acts such as Oasis, Stereophonics, Bon Jovi, Kings of Leon and others, they also performed one of their own original songs, which didn’t seem out of place during the set and was a nice little addition.

They have already performed at various different local venues and I can see these guys getting more and more bookings as word spreads around about how good they were.

They did mention they are working on several other original songs, which I would be interested in hearing, but until then I would happily still see them perform again.

Next up was Colleen’s Fancy, performing Irish Folk and Country songs, which had many in attendance up on their feet, singing and dancing.

This was their first visit to Scunthorpe and it probably won’t be their last, as the bands entertaining performance and crowd interaction, were first class.

Their performance, which had the locals in attendance singing along, dancing and even joining the band on stage, left the crowd wanting more so we were treated to a longer set than was expected.

Whilst this is not my usual type of music, I found myself enjoying it more and more, the longer the set went on.

Ramble Gamble were last up and did not disappoint.

Their alternative folk music, entertaining performance, crowd interaction and story telling all add up to a fun evening and a unique show unlike anything else I have seen locally.

All band members looked to be having lots of fun, whilst still belting out some top tunes that also had the crowd singing and dancing along.

The end of the gig even featured a stage invasion by a number of other local musicians and fans singing along to “Praise You”.

If this band was regularly performing in a bigger town or city, this band would be much bigger than they are now, so I believe it is just a matter of time before this band gets the exposure they deserve.

I don’t believe that there is anybody else locally doing what this group are doing and they are definitely worth checking out.
