The Answer play Yardbirds!
The concert room was packed with a mix of fans, some who had obviously been following The Answer for the last 15 years and some younger fans who will of caught onto the band somewhere along the road. The amount of people and the excitement in the room is something you rarely see at local gigs these days.
Opening up the gig where German band The Picturebooks. The duo play raw blues infused garage rock. Looking up on stage it was hard to believe the noise of thunderous drums, dirty guitar riffs and howling vocals were coming from two people.
Next Norfolk rockers Bad Touch took to the stage, a band full of rock ‘n’ roll swagger. Their music also had some blues rock influence which worked well with the obvious classic rock influence they have.
When headliners The Answer took to the stage you could feel the excitement in the room. The band played a set mixed with the heavy blues rock off their fifth album Raise A Little Hell as well as some older hits. They had an amazing energy that transferred to the crowd, their experience of touring shone through and it was obvious the band still knew how engage with the smaller crowds. There were a lot of feet moving and hair flying everywhere from both the band and the audience. It was genuinely an absolute pleasure to have The Answer in Grimsby and they put on a show that will be hard to beat.
