Platform 3, The West Riding Refreshment Rooms
Review from Consett Festival by NE Volume Magazine
As I entered the venue I could hear one of my favourite tracks of all time being played on the acoustic stage – The Jam’s: ‘That’s Entertainment’.
Acoustic Weller is a tribute act to Paul Weller, and sometimes tributes, to me, just don’t hit the heights I’d hope for, but Acoustic Weller was exceptional. His vocal tones were, in particular, simply perfect, and at times I thought I was actually standing in the presence of the Mod God himself.
“Acoustic Weller” features Mark from The new age Jam , playing a set of Acoustic Tunes from The Jam , Style Council and of Course Paul Weller’s extensive solo material. Mark comes with 13 years of portraying Paul Weller in The new age Jam and due to tragic circumstances in the band is now doing the Acoustic set to the legend that is Mr Paul Weller
Recently supported Steve Cradock ( OCS and Paul Weller’s guitarist )
