Absolute perfection - a night with Van the Man transported me back to a time when music was everything and a good performer didn't need props and special effects to camouflage a lack of ability.
If I wasn't sitting with a couple of metres from the stage, I would have sworn it was Van Morrison himself - every note and nuance was perfect.
The backing band didn't jump all over the stage like perhaps a Red Foo might do but they made the music seem so effortless.
The room is small which adds to the emotion and intensity - great to see so many women dancing as if it was still the 60's and 70's.
Van the Man was a little bit of a tease - thought he wouldn't do all the favourites but he kept Gloria and Baby Please Don't Go until the end and everyone left ecstatic.
While so many comment on the food, it is still excellent for the size of venue and numbers there - the salt n pepper squid is excellent and the fish and chips perfect for such a night.
