1st July 2001
To finish the weekend off was the Job of The Paul Cox Band. The man (Paul Cox) fronts a seven-piece outfit with the panache of Tom Jones. They play a good variety of blues such as a bouncy honky tonk 'Rollin back the years', and even some funky blues. Paul and his band wrapped the weekend up in true party style, managing to get most people up dancing. The old classic 'Change is gonna come' was the encore, played with respect and care it rounded things off nicely. This is my fouth year at this festival, and I can't wait to make it five. Cheers Jules, you done it again.....

THE PAUL COX BAND - CLAIR HALL - HAYWARDS HEATH, SUSSEX
The Paul Cox Band at Clair Hall, Haywards Heath Sussex. - October 5th 2001 - Mike Dandrige
We were treated to a show that had the crowd shouting for more long after the final encore. This band with out a doubt is one of the best kept secrets working on the UK club circuit, Paul Cox and his band of accomplished musicians, had the audience eating out of their hands by the second number. Playing a mix of tunes from their own back catalogue together with a selection of blues and soul standards.
The band included Nicky Payn on Saxes (fresh from his outing with Bill Wymans Rhythm Kings he has been on a world tour for the last four months) it was nice to see him back teamed with Martin drover on trumpet, I personally always like to hear the band with a horn section.
Mike Summerland is a guitar player that has the complete range a tone shades and sounds at his finger tips, whether it be the blistering heavy metal tones required for John Hiatt's "Paper thin", or the soulful blues on Etta James's "Poring Water on a drowning man". The outstanding rhythm section pairing of Steve James. on drums and Al Maclow on bass are to die for, they are rock solid.
On keyboards was Chris Parren, standing in for Garry Moberley (who is in on tour in Australia) Chris played a blinding set showing why he is one of the most sought after session men in the UK.
Paul Cox was in fine voice singing songs from his new CD "Real World" which already sound like classics to me, Paul is the complete showman interacting with audience and performing his socks off. As Paul Jones said of him on his radio show " the best voice in the UK" and who would disagree with him, on the evidence of tonight's high energy performance, certainly not the crowed at the Clair Hall. I can't wait to see him the band and the "Kick Ass" horn section again.
