Review of Crocodile Mock at Harlow Playhouse

IT is always exciting to be listening to and watching live music and this is how it was on Saturday. Iain Court and his 8 piece band promised to recreate the authentic sound of Sir Elton John and with humour made this Saturday night alright.

With a wink to the audience and wowing with his piano the band started the evening with the Bitch is Back and kept a full Harlow Playhouse audience entertained for the evening. Although all the songs are favourites, the band moved onto Sacrifice which Iain told us was Elton’s only number one song and had audience participation for Benny and the Jets and of course Crocodile Rock.

Some members of the band are local and they were pleased to be playing at the Harlow Playhouse. Fans came from as far as Nottingham and one couple celebrating their engagement. Another shout out was to a local business who had brought the team for a night out.

Iain introduced the members of the band who are Dan Clark on keyboards, Mike McGibney on bass guitar, Clive Osborn on lead guitar, Claire Hughes and Gemma Marner as backing vocals with Nicol Wilson on Percussion and Matt Weston on drums. I particularly enjoyed Claire and Iain’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart where Claire put her own style into the performance and loved all of Nicol’s percussion instruments that he played for the evening.

It was a great end to the hottest day this year, singing, swaying and laughing to the very last song.
