Bob Brozman

2008-05-26

It’s been over 10 years since I last saw Bob Brozman; in this time, he’s lost none of his prowess, and learnt a fair few new tunes. I think he’s got more rhythmic as well.

He’s a difficult musician in many ways; he changes rhythm a lot, his sense of humour is continual and a little strange; his musical tastes are getting to define the word eclectic. But, he’s also engaging, entertaining and exciting to watch. It was a superb gig; I would be a fool if I left it 10 years again.

It was a strange gig also; I was faced with a difficult choice: Bob Brozman, a house party or a combined barbeque and eurovision night. In the end, I know that I made the right choice. What was interesting though, is that this is the first gig that I have been to for ages on my own; since I have moved up north to Newcastle, I’ve had the fortune to meet quite a few people with similar music tastes. Actually, I really enjoyed being solitary; that I was exhausted added to it; I almost slept in the interval; I became totally engrossed in the music, and lost a sense of self.

I’d not been to the Buddle arts centre in Wallsend before; but they have some stonking gigs coming up. I shall be there for more I think.
