Saturday night and it was a visit to the Lord Roberts to sample the music performed by local band
Dog Day Afternoon also known as DDA .
The line up is Jon Hunt on Lead Guitar, Pete Fenwick on Drums, Kev Oades on Bass Guitar and Dean Mychajluk the showman/ frontman lead singer of this talented quartet.
Their sound on stage is very well controlled by their sound engineer Paul Wood who seems to expertly very discreet and in the background when the band are on stage.
I arrived at the venue at about 8pm and it was already pretty full with the bands local supporters easily spotted by the Dog Day t-shirts, proudly being worn.There was also a party of the bands supporters in from Goole.
Dog Day Afternoon have a set list of covers from the 60s to the present day. Once the band took to the stage they proceeded to treat the very appreciative audience to a musical journey throughout the years.
Dean put on a show, like most good front men he can entertain the crowd with his jumping, bouncing and twisting as they performed songs from Green Day, Free, Bryan Adams Kaiser Chiefs along with a special spot consisting of a special medley of songs by Queen. Where Dean takes the stage as his version of Freddie Mercury. For those people who were not there you missed a very good band who strived and succeeded to make sure everybody present enjoyed themselves.
The whole evening was very enjoyable. All that is left to say is, if you want a great evening for any function, Dog Day Afternoon can musically provide that and more.
Again as I have said before it is very nice to see that local bands and venues such as the Lord Roberts and others are keeping music alive and well in Scunthorpe.
