If I were to delve back into music history, it would be pretty safe to say that no live concert has ever been preceded by a screening of fairytale movie ever after. One of the stranger interludes I’ve seen, Green for the Pink’s 8 stellar acts were divided by a film that is far from Drew Barrymore’s finest.

And it would also be pretty safe to say that the The Gentlemen Callers must have had a few sweaty palms knowing that they were opening to a crowd trapped in a romcom-induced stupor.

It’s a lucky thing then that the Callers were the perfect wake-up call.

The crowd were soon snapped wide-awake by vocalist Shaun Cawston’s soaring vocals, backed perfectly by Les Milne’s deep-bass lines. It wasn’t long before the popcorn was ditched and the crowd was eating out of the Callers’ now not-so nervous hands.

The band clearly see punk and stadium rock as their calling, best heard on ‘A Girl Called Radio’, however a little taste of surf-rock, which had the crowd rocking out like it was new years eve 1959, and a killer wah-wah guitar solo in ‘Shop-On’, straight out of a 70’s funk track, were great touches, showing the band’s depth and their knack for reading a crowd.

A few technical hitches aside, the band were polished, prepped and ready to rock. The generous banter between songs and liberal doses of rock-n-roll showmanship from drummer Dan Hearn showed that these guys know how to put on a show. Let’s just hope they get a better warm-up act next time.
