Jared James Nichols -Live Review – Manchester Academy

Jared James Nichols is hungry, very hungry, and not, as you might think, for a good meal. He is hungry for success. Tonight in Manchester he was out to prove to the slightly ambivalent Blue Oyster Cult faithful that he is as good as the hype that surrounds him. And boy did he do that in spades. There are no other words to describe his performance tonight – simply jaw dropping.

He came out full on and ready to rock – no holds barred, high intensity Blues Rock at its finest. It is clear that the guy simply loves being on stage and wants everyone to join in with his Blues party. What was really interesting was that within the first three songs he had pulled the crowd away from the bars, and chatting in groups, forward and into his world. Further evidence came as the queue at the merch stand afterwards grew and grew, with the many JJN converts eagerly handing over cash for signed CDs and vinyl.

His blistering, finger picking guitar technique, great song writing and super tight band provide a strong backup to a humble and modest young man here on the stage tonight. His blonde locks flying everywhere just add to the performance.

Despite the short set, we were treated to some fine performances of songs from his 2015 release Old Glory and the Wild Revival, along with his latest single, ‘Last Chance.’ Stand out songs have to be the new single with Jared bashing his guitar in a truly wild performance, opener ‘Don’t You Try,’ his cover of ‘Mississippi Queen’ and the obligatory audience sing along ‘Can You Feel It.’

As the last chord rings out, Jared puts his guitar down and jumps into the photo pit to shake hands with the appreciative audience and heads for the merch stand. This man is destined for stardom; watch this space.
