"The Liverpool crowd where buzzing to the sounds of the Hummingbirds"
by Paul Wise, Writer & EditorThe Hummingbirds are a 5 piece acoustic ensemble from Liverpool. The band have been gathering a following locally as well as on their travels around the UK, playing good quality music, written by the band.
Playing to a packed audience at the Kazimier in Liverpool They belted out some of their well written songs to a welcoming crowd.
Back to the gig, they started off with a song called All Comes Down. The crowd sang along with the band, other tracks followed. You could detect the influence of the Coral, Oasis and the Beatles but their sound was brilliantly unique. In it for the money, John Doe, Talking of Tomorrow followed before an other guitarist and a keyboards player joined the band helping play out the performance with Things you do to me, Doesn't Really Matter, Awaiting Your Call before finishing with Bankrupt Blues; unbelievably, all of these songs were penned by the band.
The gig was absolutely fantastic. The Liverpool crowd where buzzing to the sound of the Hummingbirds, they bayed for more. The Hummingbirds obliged with an encore playing a cover (unheard of) Something by the Beatles followed by a wonderful rendition of Daddy. For the finale they played out with the aptly named Back in Liverpool, the crowd once again joined in to bring the house down on such a fantastic night.
A MUST SEE band. They have a website www.wearethehummingbirds.com where you can check the band out; they are also on facebook www.facebook.com/pages/The-Hummingbirds/109030545823674 .
All said and done, a brilliant performance enjoyed by everyone.
