Chuck Ragan Banquet Records

A couple of weeks ago we got the chance to see Chuck Ragan performing a solo set in Banquet Records in Kingston.

I used to live so close to Kingston & didn’t even know this fab record shop was there! I’ve bought quite a few things from their online store & they always add a little personalised note of other artists you should listen to. If you’re ever in the area or looking for a place to get your music online I’d really recommend them.

The shop was tiny & we formed a line outside while we waited for Chuck to turn up. I loved the way he just trundled along with his guitar in a case walking down the street like any other guy. Well I guess he is to everyone else, but to us lot standing there he’s an ace musician & lovely guy!

He played for about half hour & it’s always great getting to see little intimate gigs like this. We were lucky enough to catch the Revival Tour group playing in the Lee shop last year (see link HERE). We all enjoyed a bit of a sing-a-long & there was this guy behind us who stood there & went ‘woop woop’ at the end of every song. So funny!

Afterwards we piled out of the shop to line up again for a chance to get stuff signed & to say hello. I managed to get a poster out of the window as well as picking up 2 albums we didn’t have.
