ANOTHER 80s tribute act came to the River Rooms, which is fast gaining a reputation as the place to be if you like your music from that great decade.
This time it was an all-girl group featuring the vocal talents of Nicola Marie Harris, who makes a living from re-creating music from the likes of Lady Ga Ga to Shania Twain, and she certainly has the powerful voice and forceful personality to do that.
She was the star of the show, doing a number of solo sets, as well as being supported by two younger girls who provided little more than eye candy and some dancing.
That was entertaining in itself, but their singing when called upon was poor.
Artists covered included Lionel Richie, Madonna, The Human League, Gerorge Michael and of course Cyndi Lauper, so it wasn't just a case that the group concentrated on the female acts of the decade.
They finished with 'The Land of Make Believe' by Bucks Fizz, their second number by that group and it was a welcome suprise to the set list of an enjoyable one-hour gig.
