image by into blues and guitar knows of prodigy Bob Brozman and his flying fingers. Having myself discovered him on youtube, I just had to see him in action. He came across as a normal guy, who mingled and drank with the audience before and after his sets. His hardworking ethic on stage was also evident, from setting up his own kit of 5-6 guitars, to playing with the ferver of a madman for over 2 hours.

He worked the crowd with wit and humour - something that also carried through his performance, often turning a melody or changing texture for comedic effect. He played a vast range of styles from places all over the world, which was quite refreshing.

The Half Moon as a venue may be forced to close by its owners, after 50 years as a music venue. If you feel like showing your support, go to a gig, and send your comments on their forum. The last thing London needs is 1 less independent music venue!

check out a few Bob samples:
