Safehouse – Allmans Project. #Live #Music #Edinburgh #edfringe .@theSpaceUK www.henni.photo

In case you haven’t come a cross them, Safehouse are an Edinburgh based band who play regular gigs around Scotland, specialising in a fantastic blues / rock /psychedelic mix that’ll get you going.

With additional drummer and conga player, they did an Allmans Project set over a few nights as part of the Fringe here in Edinburgh and bloody good it was too. The line-up was Gary Mees, Gary Davidson, Sky Tusk, Ali Petrie, Andrew Stirling, Mike Park, Sean Scott and John Bruce. The latter two being former members of Blues’n’Trouble – previously posted about when they had their 30th anniversary.

So here’s a set of shots we took…

And a couple of out-takes.

First up, demonic eyes in the extra fine keyboard player, Mr Ali Petrie.

The Blues Botherers

Some pictures from the Blues’n’Trouble 30th (give or take a couple of years) anniversary  gig, preceded by a snap of an early incarnation of B’n’T that was our wedding band in February 1983. The gig at The Queen’s Hall was kicked off by Safehouse and culminated in a reunion of various B’n’T people from over the years.

So, our wedding band. Yes, really. Callum (Scars drummer), Kruntsch(?), Willie Pettigrew, John Bruce, the late and very great Jimmy Brown and Lesley, if I remember right? They played  a country blues waltz for us to dance to, then it all kicked off.

A quick word for Jimmy Brown – one of the best gravelly blues voices I’ve heard, a really nice guy. A highlight for me was the band playing, with him singing Maggie’s Farm with both feeling (it was the eighties) and a smile on his face.

Bear in mind that this is a happy snap on a basic camera from the early eighties – you are lucky it’s in colour and vaguely in focus.

So, on to Safehouse. In the picture below it is three hairy blokes and drum’n’bass, but they are more than just a rythmn’n’hair band – go see ’em for some fantastic guitar stuff from Mr John Bruce and don’t miss Mr Ali Petrie’s organ. They are kept in line by the drums of Mr Sean Scott and the bass / chief of proceedings Mr Andrew Stirling and fronted by the man with the hairy voice, Mr Chris Peebles. They play regularly in Whistlebinkies in Edinburgh plus elsewhere and do an amazing Allman Brothers inspired set, together with blues and more.

And finally, the Blues’n’Trouble all-star revival combination monster that grew limbs and ended the night. There’s ex-BnT-ers Mike Park on the right, who plays like Peter Green I think, Sean Scott on the drums and Telecaster Dave, Mr Lively-having-a-good-time and in a grinning competition with John Bruce. They joined current band members Tim Elliott (vocals – and co-founder of Blues’n’Trouble with John Bruce), Angus Rose (keyboards/guitar) and Rod Kennard (bass).
