After that there was more of a set by a DJ, and then The Caezars came on. They were more mainstream rock than jive, but they did have a double bass. I think the flyers described them as "Vintage styled Rock'n'Roll that Tarantino would be proud of" - Timeout Magazine. The Caezars were pretty energetic, there was a lot of jumping about, and it was pretty fast too, but we got a stroll in for one of the slower songs, and I think the lead singer was impressed. They loosened up gradually when they realised we were a much more relaxed crowd than London. They played a couple of encore songs and I got a couple of dances in, though it was pretty damn fast. They reminded me a lot of the music I listened to when I was younger, I really enjoyed it. For the very last song they told us that when they cut the music everyone had to shout 'Hail Caezar!' so we had a little practise and someone at the side shouted 'Fuck you!' which really tickled them, so during the song they singer kept passing the mic to the side and you'd get a little 'Fuck you!' after we'd all shouted. The last time he didn't do it and the lead singer stopped the song until he'd said it.
Afterwards I had a couple of dances but I was pretty knackered so I decided to get my boots on. I ran into the lead singer and we ended up having a chat. He's from Bristol, he's about 23 and he's been singing since he was 15. He was sporting a beard so I was pretty surprised that he was that young and he said it wasn't a statement, his shaver is broken! It's getting pretty itchy and he can't wait to shave. He seemed like a pretty nice guy, he said that he had enjoyed playing there and that in the early days of the band they played a lot of Rockabilly gigs and these days they are a bit more mainstream so it was nice to get back to that.
It was a lovely night out, it was nice to be dancing, great to see everyone again, and really great to be introduced to a new band. Fun!
