John Power is more than 'Alright' at the Ruby Lounge
Cast were one of my favourite bands of the 90s. Other than an ill judged trip to GMEX for the Smash Hits tour as a teenager, Cast were one of the first bands I saw.
John Power’s acoustic set brought a fresh sound to original Cast hits alongside his solo numbers which have a blues, Americana, country vibe. Carried off with the voice and charisma he’s always had, it was great to be part of the crowd singing along to Sandstorm, Flying, Live the Dream and Walkaway.
There’s no hiding with just two acoustic guitars which showed the talent on stage – the sound was at times as all encompassing as a full band. I particularly enjoyed the last song ‘Alright’ – still one of my favourites.
