Dan Reed – The Cluny 2, Newcastle upon Tyne 16th September 2017

David Wilson

Over the last seven years, I have seen one man perform live more than any other. In fact, I often joke, with Dan that I see him more than my family – he always says “surely not” but, in all honesty, my comment has more than a hint of truth about it. ...

Well who would have thought it? 48 ½ years on this planet and still finding new and exciting music that fills one soul with passion and excitement. Sure, I will always be a child of the 1980s when music was all about fun, big hair and stupidity, yet here I am filling ...
