Jesse Wong & Rouge @ Nambucca, Holloway

20150218_204847I was in Holloway this evening to see my friends eldest play his first solo gig.

Jesse Wong has been in several bands before (Major League and Rude Health to name but two) but was playing tonight unaccompanied.

An exceptionally talented young man with a voice that you just can’t forget, he is definitely a name to watch out for in the future. Having already been on tour as the bass player for Big Deal, to my ears it’s only a matter of time until he becomes a name in his own right…

The second band on were called Rouge and they were really quite something.

Think of a big guitar driven sound that encompasses Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins and you’ll get the idea. Brimming with enthusiasm, energy and ability they seemed to really enjoy their time on stage.

I must have seen many hundreds of bands at mid week gigs over the years but only a few have triggered that “Hmm they’ve got something special” feeling..

With any luck these girls will go far…

As a small contribution to their hopefully inevitable success, I bought their new single as a hand made limited edition CD, and as Dan looked them up online in the pub to find out a bit more about them, I was well chuffed to find out that by chance I’d bought the exact same sleeve they used for their Facebook page.

Double plus good……
