RETROKIMMER'S PUNK ROCK HOLIDAY WAS AMAZING


The Last of the Badmen

***I want to send a special hug and thank you to Race...a great guy, so kind and helpful at the show Friday night...***

We were so excited to finally see this band! I have seen Steve Godoy drum with the Bermondsey Joyriders and Art Godoy play bass with The Vibrators.  Then I saw them both play with Deniz Tek last spring.

This time we finally got to meet/watch singer and front man extraordinaire Danny Creadon... OMG what a guy....I sat with Bootsey X while watching the Badmen and Bootsey kept asking me, "Who is that guy?" "He's GOOD." High praise indeed...

Danny Creadon

The lighting in the club was very poor but we shot what we could... Back to Danny...Like a lot of wild front men, Danny is soft spoken and very articulate off stage.  The second he takes that mic he transforms into another person...Just incredible... Photos and video can't capture him..really true..you've got to see him live to get it.. We were all blown away.




This was the first time I had seen Art Godoy play lead guitar! WOW... Quite a leap from Bass playing to lead. He looked much happier in that slot! 

Steve Godoy, the Pounding Punk drummer amazed all my friends...LOL  This was the third time I was so lucky to see Steve play... 

Rikki St James still hasn't stopped talking about Steve's drumming! I had shared Steve's videos with Rikki over the past two years, but the videos are nothing like witnessing him perform live.

Bill Kielty

Bill Kielty was so solid on Bass...I wondered what kind of Bass player could hang with the twins....Well BILL definitely hung right in there...

Steve Godoy

When I first filmed Steve Godoy drumming, I showed the video to my pal Robin in Florida.  She told me before she watched it that she did not like tattooed guys...I told her, "TRUST ME YOU WON'T EVEN NOTICE THOSE TATTOOS.."  Short answer...Robin is a Godoy fan....as are thousand of girls around the world...

When I watched Danny perform...I didn't think of Iggy....I thought of JAMES BROWN...baby please...

Art's licks were spot on..Mostly, like I said..I noticed how happy he was playing lead...



Nina Friday, Rick Ruiner, Carla and Casey Tek



Kyle Davis



We have been a giant fan of Kyle for over a year now..This guy can go all the way...multi talented is an understatement. I already knew Kyle to be a spot on lead guitarist. Loved his St James Infirmary cover!



Kyle played that for me and I thank him so much for that... Kyle's band did a bang up job backing Bootsey on his two songs.


THANK YOU SO MUCH TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT...
