Reviews: Royal Festival Hall, with The Average White Band

AWB_KOKOMO_website_header_920x550_920_550shar-20_s_c1[1]The mood was laid with a first set from Kokomo – their neat instrumental work leaving space for three singers to dance, enjoy themselves and whip up the crowd.London Jazz News

..the more rarely heard Kokomo fielded more of the original line-up, including guitarists Jim Mullen and Neil Hubbard, Tony O’Malley on keyboards and vocalists Paddy McHugh and Frank CollinsThe Herald, Scotland

The band had only 45 minutes but certainly made the most of it with a fantastic set…. . Frank Collins took in the role of MC with passion and enthusiasm pulling the crowd from their slumber (not always easy in a completely seated venue) and making sure a splendid time was had by all.” Louder Than War
