Jon-Paul Bradshaw had the Mayford Arms in Woking rocking last Friday night with his amazing Teenage Kicks gig. A fantastic mixture of The Jam, Madness, The Clash, UB40, The Specials, Squeeze and many more songs which took us right back to our teenage years.
Some of us at the gig were lucky enough to go to school with Jon-Paul and are very happy that he is back living and performing in the UK after 25 years as a singing sensation in Mallorca. Their loss is definitely our gain as JP evoked memories of the 80’s with charisma, flair and his own personal style.
Jon-Paul has a faultless voice that lends itself to many styles but his Woking accent brings an extra edge to the songs that shaped our youth. The charisma and professionalism in this perfectly polished performance was sprinkled with JP’s very own cheeky style of humour which added that extra sparkle to an evening of music, memories, dancing and laughter.
The enthusiastic energy of this fantastic show had the audience on their feet dancing all night. Sitting down was not an option with the infectious beat and flawless performance which Jon-Paul delivered on Friday night. If you had two working legs then getting on the dance floor and boogieing the night away was a must.
This very talented man does other shows too and will be performing at The Mayford Arms in Woking again on the 18th of December. The show that night is Blues Brothers versus the Commitments and this will, no doubt have us on our feet once again.
When you go home with a voice hoarse from singing along and in pain from dancing then you know you have had a fantastic night. (not sure I will attempt pogoing to the Clash again, but I can’t promise)
