The Minstrel, Chorley

Last night the Minstrel in Chorley hosted the rock band 5th Element. This excellent venue for the lovers of American and British rock pushed the boat out and so did 5th Element! This Northwest band really rock and the audience loved every minute of it. Ann Richardson with a strong, powerful voice hit all the notes, she really is a power house, just brilliant! On lead guitar was Neil Hughes, a cracking performance from him, he rocks! On rhythm guitar was Alan McEnteggart, just fantastic and clearly a guy to have on your side! The rhythm section features the amazingly energetic bass guitar of Richard Mawdsley and, completing the line up on drums, monster beat-master Phil Oakley. All in all the band did their thing in every department – the house rocked and I for one will certainly go and see them again as they play covers from the likes of the Cult, Metallica, AC/DC, Thunder, Deep Purple, and many more. A hell of a gig, guys, thanks and see you again!
