The Son's Of M.O.D.

THE band are one of many budding jazz bands on Merseyside who have started to make them selves known to the rapidly growing jazz and blues audiences in the region. Considering Son’s of MOD have only played three performances in public, before we turned up to see them, it was astonishing to see that in the very shot time they had already developed a fan base. And from seeing them live you can understand how. The band has got lots of talent, with good technical skills and a fantastic sense of rithem.

The band still have a long way to go, but considering they are just starting out, they are just as good, if not better than most bands on the I have seen in local Jazz pubs and Jazz clubs in resent years. The venue, the Ship and Anchor in Southport, is a small venue and not set out with live music in mind. Most professional bands would find that the venue would give them such a headache, getting balanced of the PA, most would give up, but this band has achieved it with ease and again that shows that the band has got lots of technical skill. This will help them go a long way in what is one of the hardest jonarers of music, where rhythm and the balancing of instruments is so essential. Sadly they are lacking in a few instruments at this time and I would think the addition of a Saxophonist and a Keyboard player would really improve them father. Also they really do need a good lead singer. I am really looking forward to seeing how this band develops over the next few months as they build up their presentation skills and loosen up more. One really big point they will also learn better microphone dissiplin and the is will be very advantages to their development on the road to being leading local jazz and blues band. One bit of music they should try and have go go at playing is Camelion as this will lead them into finding new ways of playing and also blending their talents together, but it will require more instruments to play. They are very promising and should go far, so pop on down and lend your support to them, every Saturday night from 9pm till closing time  at the Ship and Anchor over the next mouth and maybe longer!

The seizure is the latest in a number by Hawk officers which has included hauls of heroin, crack cocaine and amphetamines.
