The Classic Grand and some good old classic hard rock – that was for the dinner on Sunday night in Glasgow. Swedish rockers Electric Boys hit the town together with fancy looking Bad Touch from Dereham and Rank Berry.

The first band was on stage already at 19.30. After a short period of guessing, it became clear that it was Rank Berry – the band must be young enough to forget to introduce themselves. Very energetic rocker team with the most shiny guitarist among them running to the audience and back at top speed. Technically well constructed slow and mid tempo classic rock but nothing more original than this – the sound was a little dull and got even more dull by comparion after the following bands shows. Not very interesting music – didn’t sound original. Rank Berry finished their show after the 40 minutes, crowning it with couple of faster tracks.

Bad Touch appeared on the stage just 15 minutes later. As the experienced rockers they appeared to be they were ready quickly and did not start their show with slow  slumberous ballads. They were energized from the start with the superb rock’n’roll quality. The rock’n’roll spirit appeared with catchy songs, outstanding vocal and well, fancy outfits of the vocalist, who managed to get audience closer to the stage and keep them entertained. Overall – amazingly attractive supporting band with the outstanding vocalist in the medieval/pirate look like in the front. These five guys on the stage made the next 40 minutes fly so fast that one could not notice, when the time came for the evening specials.

As for the evening specials, Swedish rockers, with very energizing name – Electric Boys, started their show after a short break and totally hypnotized the audience. From the very first chords, there was not a single soul in a small The Classic Grand club hall, who would not be dragged closer to the stage and move along. The band had prepared quite dynamic and reasonable length setlist for the evening in Glasgow, which included many of their hits as “Lips ‘N’ Hips”, “Electrified” and couple of the covers for the end of the show. The band looked to be in the amazing shape and great mood, which next to their music was everything what fans came for.
Great set for the late Sundays evening for every Glaswegian rocker, brought all the listeners back in time for few hours. Electric Boys and the company rocked the Glasgow and left it longing for more!
