My wife and I went to the Joe Brown show at Cheltenham Town Hall last year (2016) having been a fan 50 odd years ago and it was fantastic.
I have been in rock bands during my life and know how the sound should be set up. This was the best I have seen and heard. The sound was excellent being able to hear the words of the songs and every instrument clearly. Apart from that, the performance was so very well done with a good choice of songs, not just Joe Brown songs but a medley of songs from a variety of artists. His presentation between songs was very interesting. I hope so much that he does another tour - we will be there.
We have been to see Joe Brown many times and every time have left the theatre with a smile on our faces! He inspired my husband to learn the ukulele or at least try! His music spans decades and he sings all the tunes with true feeling - our particulate favorites being Tickle me and See you in my dreams. Each year he changes his performance whilst fitting in old favorites. This is year he will not be at Henley in December, so we will try and find not too far away. Henley was super - small theatre and really very personal. True great!
We try to get to one of Joe's shows when ever we can, always a packed house, this guy knows how to entertain. Apart from the fact that he is so talented & plays so many instruments, he seems to know how important it is to vary his shows to keep us all interested. With a few golden oldies, to current music, with his own interpretation.
Joe's love of people shines through his every performance, if he gets bored performing the same material it doesn't show. All the songs feel & sound fresh, from "Henry the eighth I am", to "I'll see you in my dreams", we look forward to seeing him again soon, gawd bless him.xx
