The Tribute to Quadrophenia at Donkey Bar in Leicester was the brain child of Drew Stansall, the sax player with The Specials & The Paradimes, with the idea to project the movie onto a big screen whilst local band The Atlantics played all the hits from the film and what a night it turned out.... as The Atlantics & Drew took to the stage and blasted into The Real Me and from then on in the Donkey didn't stop bouncing.
Next up was Night Train with a funky sax solo that the Godfather of Soul would have praised follow by a crowd sing-a long of The Crystals Da Doo Ron Ron. All the soundtrack favourites followed, from Louie Louie to Be My Baby as well as playing a few extra classics such as Itchycoo Park and Start.
Encore time and Drew is back on stage for Green Onions, it's hot, it’s sweaty and it’s fantastic and then to close, an awesome version of My Generation. The night doesn't finish there as tonight’s master of ceremonies hits the decks again, filling the floor with classic tunes that are irresistible to dance to... one of the best nights out I've had in ages - Bell Boy
