FAREWELL TO BLACKWATER RIDGE

BLACKWATER RIDGE BOW OUT IN STYLE
Just a few words to say goodbye to local (Leamington Spa area) rocking 3 piece Blackwater Ridge who played their final gig yesterday at the Warwick Food Festival and as with their performance at the festival last year they were again one of the highlights of the music on offer.
A classic 3 piece line-up in the mode of Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience it is no wonder they usually throw in numbers by these iconic bands into the set and adding rock classics like Deep Purples ‘Black Night’ and Zepp instrumental ‘Moby Dick’ (complete with drum solo of course) they keep this old rocker happy for one.
They play with a smile on their face (and plenty in the audience I am sure) and do justice to all the rock classics they perform and so cool that this final performance ended in Spinal Tap style with knights and a monk joining in.
You will be missed by the local rock fraternity for sure.
