Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018. Rainbreakers are back to set Skegness alight once again. This year they headline Saturday in Jaks; the stage organised by Blues Matters. The venue that is dark, moody hot had the venue that has seen amazing nights we all still talk about the night Larry Miller set Jaks ablaze with his music. The anticipation was high amongst the many who have heard The Rainbreakers play live before. Into the mix and those who just came to see what the fuss was about or party and drink into Sunday morning.
The band was on fire full of energy as the band from Shrewsbury blended the music to create a music fuelled party atmosphere. Having spoken to members of the audience many just popped in for five minutes and now determined to stay to the end. This was no surprise to me as having been captivated by the sound since I first heard and reviewed in 2015 Blood Not Brass.
What is Rainbreakers sound? What makes then stand-out on a crowded circuit? They have stretched the blues from the Mississippi Delta, up to Chicago across to the sun-drenched West Coast and sound drenched in the seventies full of soul. Musicians ready to conquer the here and now. A quartet mix power with subtlety. A rhythm section drummer Sam Edwards and bassist Peter Adams lay down the scaffolding of their brand of Blues-rock. Guitar work from Charlie Richards bending the notes as vocals are delivered by Ben Edwards. The unit is tight and the live sound electric.
Tonight in Jaks they came set-up and allowed their music to conquer. That is exactly what they did. Saturday in Jaks was a happy place to be as they played music that made you get up and dance, smile and be happy with tracks from the second EP; Rise Up. This is what Jaks as we all rose up as one and enjoyed the moments they played a storming set, to be remembered long after Jaks falls silent. The Rainbreakers were the last Saturday night headliners to play the small stage in Jaks.
