Blues – Saturday 21st September – Kyla Brox






This was the first in a series of joint ventures between  Pavilions Teignmouth and Teignmouth Jazz and Blues, initially featuring female artists. Playing to a nearly sold out auditorium, the band started to play a lovely slowish riff as the radiant figure of Kyla Brox approached the mic to start what turned out be a marvelous evening of wonderful music. This first number immediately displayed the beauty and power of her voice with several people commenting during the break how emotional they had felt from the beginning. She showed an incredible range in her voice and at least on two occasions seemed to hold a perfect note for what seemed like minutes! Much of the music was original compositions, a lot from their latest recording called Pain and Glory, though they did end the first set with their wonderful take on one of Kyla’s idols, Etta James and her version of “I’d rather go blind”Many commented on the excellent musical standard of the band who were in particularly good form though I was told that Paul Farr on lead Guitar was suffering from a nasty cold. The drummer, Mark Warburton however, whose playing throughout was fantastic, accused him of feigning a touch of man flu’! This only underlined how well the band seemed to gell and get on. They were certainly a tight outfit that night.

Kyla indeed was very generous in her praise of her fellow musicians who included her husband, Danny Blomeley on bass who in turn impressed the audience with a couple of fine solos.
Paul Farr on lead was outstanding, showing a versatility and range which was quite magnificent. The skill of the local sound man, Dominic Jeffries, deserves a special mention as the sound quality was spot on all night.
Finally they left possibly the best to last with their rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” which brought most of the audience to their feet to salute the mastery of this fine band. A very good evening was had by all.
