Goldrush, The

Review: If you never had the chance to hear Crosby, Stills and Nash in their prime, or if you just fancy a trip back to an age before boy bands, then you have a real treat in store, come see The Goldrush. Three very talented musicians Cameron Messer (Acoustic guitar), Gavin Thomas (acoustic guitar), and Rob Blackham (Acoustic guitar and Mandolin). They recently played their first proper gig at the Ratso Rizzo Club, upstairs at the White Hart, Barnes. At the start of the evening, many in the crowd were listening, but also sat and talked, while Andrea Black and Magic Ship played. But then there was almost complete silence in the room, and more people got up to stand near the stage, as The Goldrush started their set. It contained many of the American songsmith's greatest including Deja vu, Teach Your Children, Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, and even the wonderful Long Time Gone as well as Ohio by CSNs long time friend Neil Young. The small, but select crowd were all stunned. Even the organisers were so spellbound that they let the boys play on longer than intended. But nobody said a word. The evening ended with a great performance by The Beautiful Losers, who had been kind enough to switch slots with The Goldrush, to enable many of the bands fans from Surrey to get home at a reasonable time.
