Jon-Paul Bradshaw raised the roof, shook the ground and shattered the windows
(metaphorically of course) at his Best of British gig at the Princess in Maybury last night. In a fabulous salute to the last five decades of British music, he rocked the pub for St. George’s day.
Once again displaying an amazing vocal range, Jon-Paul, sporting a fabulous British flag on his shirt, took us backwards and forwards through the decades from the 60’s to the present with a well chosen selection of songs from the great, the good and the popular. The choice of music included song from The Jam, Madness, The Style Council, Oasis, The Who, The Clash, The Rolling Stones, The Verve, George Michael, Rod Stewart, Duran Duran, Stereophonics, Adam and the Ants, Tears For Fears the Foundations, Take That and many more.
We were all delighted with Jon-Paul’s rendition of Re-light my Fire accompanied with a tongue in cheek copy of the Take That moves. This, along with the comedic changing of some of the lyrics and the odd cheeky comment to the crowd showed off Jon-Paul’s ability to interact with the crowd as well as being a brilliant singer.
The songs from Madness even had the men strutting their stuff on the dance floor and that is a rarity in most pubs. Men and women in their 40’s and 50’s can still rock the dance floor and the Princess was certainly rocking last night as the years rolled back and the memories flooded, fuelled by JP’s top rate performance.
Once again the atmosphere was fun, fast and fabulously energetic, sprinkled with laughter and top songs sung by our very own Jon-Paul Bradshaw. Anyone in the Woking area should come along to the gigs as they are a wonderful opportunity to see some home grown talent. JP also gigs in other areas, see below for information.
