Review: The Sleaze Brothers at the Lichfield Guildhall

It is a truth universally acknowledged that there ain’t no party like a Sleaze Brothers party – and the talented band proved it once again.

The seasoned six piece played a wide selection of classic blues, rock and soul songs, and added in a selection of festive favourites with a few special guests thrown in for good measure.

Classics from the soul canon, such as Midnight Hour and Mustang Sally, got the large audience on the dance floor, whilst JJ Cale’s Cocaine was a show-case for the light funk guitar of Tim Perks.

During the second half they were joined by an Elvis Presley impersonator for a Little Less Conversation and the crowd singalong of Lonely This Christmas.

The ensemble paid tribute to the recently deceased Fats Domino during Blueberry Hill.

The band showed their more sensitive side, adding a guest mandolinist and tin whistles to a show-stealing version of The Pogues and Kirsty McColl’s Fairytale of New York.

Two encores, one of which was Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody, left the crowd satisfied. All in all, a fine closing concert for Lichfield Arts season.
