Northwich band 'House of Cain' headlined a charity gig last night at Witton Albion in aid of the childrens' cancer charity CLIC Sargent. The event was organised by Corbyn Smith whose dedication and hard work did not go unnoticed. Unfortunately, two other bands had to pull out which left HoC holding the stage and making it a very special night.The band did two sets - just under an hour each set, and gave it everything they could, both musically and energetically. I really admired the guys for this, they did it in a relaxed way, looked like they were enjoying themselves, and gave us all some long-lasting memories of great music on a great night.,
The band specialise in writing and producing their own material, and covers ( which last night sounded as good as, if not better, than the originals). Covers included the Stevie Wonder classic 'Superstition', which was faithful to the original, whilst showing sparks of that gutsy soul/rock sound which House of Cain is gaining its reputation in.Their own work can be heard on their new album 'North Country Blues'.
