A real surprise to hear americana done so well. The Lost Society played a set that was refreshingly relaxing after a hectic day at work. Catchy and moving songs such as "Wait For The Summer" and the lustful vaudevillian number "Hot Tango Fever" make this a really interesting act and not just a one trick pony. Frontman Joseph James' guitar skills were something to be truly admired especially on the Flamenco Improvisation halfway through the set, Ben Hillyard's virtuosity on the double bass made the group all so exciting to watch and a guest appearance from all rounder Pete Lucas, with guitar on "Wait For The Summer" and "Lonely" and Sax on "Wild Saxophone" was an inspiration. The venue was perfect, with enormous leather sofas to sink your self into and room at the bar to swing your hips during the more upbeat numbers.
